A community, not for profit, 6 a side league has been so overwhelmed with teams clamouring to join they have announced a massive expansion of the competition – and to make it even better for the players, they are offering two free games.
Around 1000 local footballers are already playing in the leagues in Worcester, but such has been the clamour to return to sport, space has now been created for another 200 to join.
The 6 a side league will see hundreds of local players able to play and these are players from all abilities, with League Manager Shaun Biggs adding: “The lifting of lockdown has led to an incredible influx of teams, and this has been especially true for Worcester, where we already run on the wonderful pitches at Sixways, three nights a week.”
There is a marvellous prize for the winners too with them getting entry into the Leisure Leagues Prize Draw to see them jet to a game in one of Europe’s top leagues. There are also prizes for the runners up, Most Valuable Player and with a special prize for the bottom team.
Qualified referees will have all equipment provided, together with regular training from the likes of Mark Clattenburg, who is a Leisure Leagues Ambassador.
Leisure Leagues have taken steps to ensure that the leagues are Covid-19 safe, with a string of new measures including asking teams to pay for their games with a card rather than cash and not allowing teams within two metres of the referee.
The expanding league is filling up already, with team entries are available now by clicking here: https://www.leisureleagues.net/league/sixways-stadium/worcester-sunday
