New Leagues For Players Getting Back In The Game

London FA announces new partnership which will see several recreational leagues established for adult male players in the capital.

London FA and PlayFootball are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership which will see several new recreational leagues created for adult men.

Following positive feedback from a series of pilot leagues over the summer, London FA and PlayFootball have designed a new 7vs7 and 9vs9 recreational leagues to fit around your schedule, making it easier for everyone to play football. Each game lasts between 40-60 minutes and is played on a floodlit, all weather, 3G pitches with an FA accredited referee. 

PlayFootball will offer flexible leagues focusing under-21 football (16-19s) and men who are looking to get back into the game or play a little more. There is a significant drop out within these groups and these new, fun, low cost leagues will offer a different type of football. The leagues will focus around the following:

  • Offer a non-traditional format of the beautiful game
  • Provide additional competition for existing and new players in a fun and friendly environment
  • Providing opportunities for individuals to develop football skills and increase fitness levels
  • To help signpost players wishing to play more football into traditional teams

Information on the leagues available can be found below:


12:00 - 16:00 (Coldharbour)

13:00 - 16:00 (Mile End)

12:00 - 16:00 (Crystal Palace)


19:00–22:00 (Stratford)

Neil Twitchett, London FA Head of Delivery said: "London FA in partnership with PlayFootball are delighted to offer new small sided football opportunities. Our research shows a significant drop out of players over 16 and this fun, low cost competition fits really well for those with busy lives."
