What could be better than strutting out onto a pristine 5-a-side pitch with your mates, ready to scrap for bragging rights under the beaming floodlights on a warm late summer evening? Granted, having Ronaldinho turn up to play would certainly be up there, but how about receiving new gear and beer on the day, and potentially winning prizes from a treasure trove worth £200,000?
The worlds largest and most respected operator of 5-a-side pitches, Goals, are gearing up to launch their Kick Off Festival week. Teams booking a pitch at one of their 500-plus centres on or after the 6th September will be given a guaranteed scratch-card on their arrival, with prizes ranging from new shin pads and goalie gloves, to pitchers of beer for celebrations (or wound licking) after the game!
There’s also an automatic entry for those teams into the main prize pot, with an Xbox One, PS4, Go Pro and iWatch just some of the kit up for grabs!
With pitches all across the UK, all FA accredited, Goals are clearly the best in the business. Each centre house a minimum of ten state of the art, 5G pitches, giving the best opportunity for even the most disorganised of teams to grab a match right at the death. The all weather centres provide top of the range shower and changing facilities, with fully licensed lounge bars with free wifi and BT Sport the best place for pre or post match urges.
A simple registering on the Goals website will put you right at the heart of the service. Book a one-off pitch, join or create a league or tournament, catch up on the latest news, hire out function rooms, or get on the spot answers from Goals through online chat.
Teams joining an existing league get a free trial game, with weekend league matches also rolling in free of charge. All the stats are posted online and are accessible through the exclusive Goals App, keeping you up to date for every and all team talks, meetings and dressing downs!
Ranging from between £60 to £73 (with a sub, that’s only about a tenner each), pitches can be easily booked online, so its up to you to round up your mates. Did you know an average player at goals burns roughly 747 calories an hour? Even the most disgruntled missus can’t argue with that when you peel her man away from her to play up top!
