7 a side Football Tournaments

Building confidence in the game, while staying fit and active, is an ideal way for youngsters to enjoy football. And there’s a lot to be said for playing in smaller teams, especially when it comes to the younger years.

Not only does the increased chance at the ball and faster pace mean more excitement and greater fitness, but it can enable a better understanding of the game and encourage greater concentration.

Our seven a side football tournaments are a whole load of fun to take part in, as players can join their mates to take on teams from around the UK and play the sport that they love in surroundings that offer great times for everyone.

Whether you’ve a young Ronaldo on your hands or they’re not quite there yet, the experience is one to enjoy for teams of all abilities.
