About this Event

PLAY FOR YOUR COUNTRY AS NEW LEAGUE IN MERVUE KICKS OFF

The chance to play 6 a side football for your country is on offer as a new league is ready for kick off in Mervue.

The Mervue area, has been short of top quality, organised small-sided football, but all that will be changing in November, and players could find themselves on the world stage in 2021 if they sign up.

Leisure Leagues – the world’s largest provider of community sport – is readying a competition at Mervue United on Sunday, but as Area Manager James May explained that is not all. “At Leisure Leagues we are proud to hold the licenses to run the national 6 a side football teams for the home nations and Ireland. That means that any player who impresses could be taken from the local 3G to the international stage at the World Cup.”

Millions watched the 2019 event around the world, and after the worldwide pandemic saw international events pause in 2020, a return is planned next year.

James stressed, though, that the league was open to everyone, adding: “The glorious thing about these leagues is that they become such a real heartbeat of the community, bringing everyone together, whether they are the elite with dreams of honours, or people that haven’t played for years, everyone can play.”

In order to make the league – which is exempt from the “Rule of 6” and will be allowed to continue in any tier of coronavirus restrictions – as accessible to everyone, Leisure Leagues have waived the usual entry fee with James saying: “At a time when money is tight for many, we want as many people as possible to benefit from the increased exercise and everything else they can get at a league like this.”

Teams will be playing for a spot in the Leisure Leagues Prize Draw. An online event, held on Social Media each month which sees teams in with a chance to win massive prizes including an all expenses paid trip to watch a game in one of Europe’s top leagues, something really to look forward to once everything is back to normal.

Leisure Leagues is a registered Not For Profit organisation committed to donating to charities and good causes.
