Small Sided Football

Small Sided Football (SSF) is the most popular and fastest growing area of adult football. With over 1.5 million adults playing in 30,000 SSF teams every week, this format of football has increasingly become an integral part of the football family.

Somerset FA recognises the important role that Small Sided Football plays in encouraging people to continue playing football and enjoying all aspects of the ‘beautiful game.’ 

Small Sided Football is an all encompassing term that covers the following formats:

• 4v4
• 5v5
• 6v6
• 7v7

Wherever you are around the county, the chances are that there is an opportunity to play Small Sided Football on your doorstep. This could come in all shapes and sizes from a large custom-built Small Sided Football facility with multiple pitches, to an indoor sports halls configured for Futsal, or even to an 11-a-side pitch temporarily split into smaller pitches. 

There are also a whole host of operators and providers that provide Small Sided Football opportunities, just do make sure that when you play in organised small sided leagues that they are appropriately affiliated to Somerset FA or The FA.
