Aimed at providing men with the opportunity to play 11-a-side football on a Monday night, teams can now sign up to Northamptonshire FA’s successful 50-minute Monday Night Football League, which kicks-off at Northampton School for Boys on Monday 15 January.
The League consists of 10 matches per season, taking place on a weekly basis on Northampton School for Boys’ full-size, floodlit 3G artificial surface on Billing Road in Northampton between 6:30pm and 9:30pm.
Three match officials are provided within the £44 match fee, meaning that all team managers need to worry about is getting their 11 players together on a weekly basis. Squads may consist of up to 25 players, with 15 players permitted in a match day squad. Repeat substitutions are allowed, which ensures all squad members have the opportunity to play regularly.
The innovative league format would suit former 11-a-side teams wishing to start playing again, or a small-sided squad looking to try something different. Individual players will be signposted to teams looking for extra players.
The Monday Night Football project is delivered by League Co-ordinators Alex Sugden and Aaron Lee from Northamptonshire FA. Alex said: “We are offering players who may struggle to commit to weekend matches due to work, family or other social reasons the chance to still enjoy 11-a-side football. We take care of all the match arrangements, so all you need to do is turn up and play!”
Stuart Smith, Northamptonshire FA Football Development Officer, said: “As we approach our 10th season of 50-minute football in Northampton, we’re very proud to continue offering men a high quality football fix. It also offers great value for money at around £4 per player, so don’t hesitate to round up your teammates and get in touch today!”
