Broomfield Fives

Colorado's first and best freestyle outdoor five-a-side summer soccer league is returning to Broomfield in 2019! Five-a-side takes your game to the next level with bigger fields providing more space for you to get creative, real live goalkeepers and no restrictive goal boxes. Created in the United Kingdom, five-a-side is a fast-paced game which gets you back to playing soccer instead of worrying about rules, referees or endless sitting on the bench. Teams are restricted to a maximum of ten players for each 40 minute game, giving everyone plenty of playing time. Games will be played without referees and coaching during the league games. One coach will be allowed on the players’ side, ONLY to help with substitutions if needed. The goal is to let the players relax and learn to solve their own problems. The atmosphere is pure fun, it’s the best time you can have playing soccer over the summer!

A goal keeper restart (Goalkeeper’s hands) is a method of restarting play (in place of a goal kick) and must be completed in 5 seconds.

The goal keeper restart is awarded when the whole of the ball, having last touched a player of the attacking team, passes over the goal line, either on the ground or in the air (ie. goal kick)

*The Penalty Play (Bracket Games only) In place of a Penalty Kick (TOUNRAMENT ONLY)

A penalty play is awarded against a team which commits any of the offences for which a direct free kick is awarded, inside its own penalty area and while the ball is in play.

Why Fives?

  • Increased playing time. Five players on the field all of the time, subbing on the fly.
  • Longer games. Two 20 minute halves allows fitness and tactics to become more important to the game.
  • Bigger goals. More realistic to the full sided game, players can aim for areas of the goal rather than just “the goal”.
  • Realistic boundaries. Just like the real game, all players can go anywhere on the field. No penalties for stepping in the goal box like 3v3 tournaments.
  • Improved player development. 5-a-side lends itself to a 1-2-1 system of play which naturally creates the diamond and triangle team shapes players should look to maintain when playing larger side games.
  • Goalkeepers. The game trains keepers in the off season. It also trains forwards to shoot on goalkeepers rather than empty nets. With the modern game (back pass rule) 5-a-side also encourages goalkeepers to play as field players, improving their footwork on the ball.
