Soccerpitch are pleased to announce all details have been released for the exciting new SIX-a-side League in FROME at the Frome Leisure Centre.

We are delighted with the successful start that the Frome League had last night. 

Ten teams took part in the big kick off last night and we are excited for the season ahead of us.

FEES - £27 a week paid prior to the game. Fees must be paid in full for the referee to start the game. We operate a payment card system at this league. In order for the referee to allow each team to play, the full match fees must be paid before the game. Each team manager will then be given an orange payment card which they will then give to the ref. The ref will not allow the game to start until each team has handed in the orange payment card.

FOOTWEAR - Astro truf trainers or Trainers are the only footwear permitted. All other footwear is not allowed to be worn.

ALL PLAYERS MUST WEAR SHINPADS AT ALL TIMES. No pads = no game.

Seasons are seven weeks long, each team will play each other once. A new season will start the week after of the conclusion of the current campaign. 

 

The league runs all year round with no breaks between seasons. The league does not operate for two weeks at Christmas.

  RULES 

  • After a goal has been scored, the match restarts from the centre mark.

  • Match duration is 2 x 18 minute halves = 36 minute game.

  • When the ball goes out of play through the side-lines, kick ins are used instead of throw ins - kick ins must not go over head height (measured as six foot).

  • The ball is allowed over head height.

  • The area around each goal (penalty area) is in bounds for all team players

  • Once a free kick has been given, the defending team must be at least three yards away from where the free kick is to be taken.

  • Slide tackles are not allowed. If this offence occurs, an indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team.

SOCCERPITCH REGULATIONS 

Team Withdrawals

 

By playing in a Soccerpitch League, teams are entering into a contract with Soccerpitch.

If a team pulls out part way through a season they are liable for all of theirs and their opponents fees for the remaining games of the season. There are no exceptions to this rule and legal action will be taken to recover the outstanding fees.

If teams are having troubles, please always contact Soccerpitch as we can often help with players.

 

Non - show of teams

  1. Soccerpitch will try to assist teams in cases of extreme difficulty when at least three days notice is given of problems in making a match commitment.
  2. If a team cancel their match they will lose 5-0 and be charged the following:
  • Less than 24 hours notice of kick off – full match fee plus the match fee of the opposing team will be charged.
  • More than 24 hours notice of kick off – full match fee will be charged.

 

Friendly

If a team does not notify Soccerpitch by 5pm on the day of their game or does not turn up at the venue on the night and makes no contact at all, Soccerpitch can and will try to arrange a friendly to fulfil the fixture. Soccerpitch also reserve the right to pair two teams, whose fixtures have been cancelled due to non show of the opposition, in a friendly match. Please note Soccerpitch can replace any non-showing team with a replacement team at any time. £5 is discounted off a team's match fees for a friendly game.

- In all friendly matches, the team who cancelled will lose the match by however many goals their opposition scores in the friendly. Eg, a friendly game finishes 10-10 between the original opponents and a fill in team, the original opponents win 10-0. N.B.The maximum a team will ever be allowed to win by in any friendly is 10-0 and the first 10 scoring players will be credited with their goals. If the attending team fails to score in a friendly they will still win the match 5-0 This is all done to ensure those teams in the league are not overly affected by any teams non appearance.

 

See you on the Pitch!
