PlayCam cover several 5-A-Side Tournaments throughout the year. PlayCam do not coordinate these tournaments, instead partner with various event organisers and corporate event organisers to provide regular 5-A-Side Tournaments in 2019.
General format of 5-A-Side tournaments
Most 5-A-Side tournaments in the UK operate on the World Cup format. With a round robin group stage that is followed by cup knockouts. This insures that all participating teams are guaranteed at least 4 games.
Group stages are often played in the morning, allowing enough time for a lunch break. This is usually for an hour. After lunch, knockout stages and finals complete the afternoon period
Teams consist of a minimum of 5 players with a maximum of 8 players in total per team. Substitutions are rolling throughout the game with one on, one off.
Not all events provide football kits to the teams involved. Please consult the organisers prior to the tournament.
Prizes at our 5-A-Side tournaments
Commonly, the 5-A-Side tournament closes with a prize ceremony. Prizes vary per tournament, so please ensure to checkout this information in the events section.
Subsequently, PlayCam occasionally present special prizes to ‘Goal of the Tournament’. Goal of the tournament is judged by the 5-a-side tournament organisers. Again, please see the individual event for further information.
