Five-A-Side is now the most popular form of participation football in England. The nationwide rise of the small-sided format is reflected here at Warwick where Five-A-Side is booming.
The Five-A-Side Football Club is the University of Warwick's largest sports club which last year comprised over 140 teams and more than 1000 members. The Club runs six ladder leagues during the year, culminating in the Champions League, Plate and Ladder Winners competitions at the end of the season. The Club also organises a Cup competition and tournaments in association with Club sponsors, Oliver Wyman.
One of the reasons for the Five-A-Side Club's enduring success is that players of all abilities can, and are encouraged to, get involved. There is a wide variety in the standard of teams participating. The ladder format of the leagues caters for all levels so that while the Cristiano Ronaldo wannabes compete together, the Titus Brambles do battle as well.
The club enters two futsal teams into regional BUCS competitions against teams from other universities, with regular training and coaching available to those wishing to take part. There is also a chance for the creme de la creme of Warwick Five-A-Side to compete against teams from other universities in BUCS on the national stage.
