Manchester City head into 2018 with a commanding lead at the top of the Premier League and they seem destined to claim this season’s title.
Manager Pep Guardiola has his team playing an exciting style of football and it’s difficult to imagine the likes of Manchester United or Chelsea being able to catch them.
If City’s form has inspired you, why not grab your mates and a ball and head down to your local Goals arena and keep the beautiful game alive while Pep and his team march on to Premier League glory.
Goals, the world’s leading five and seven-a-side operators, have also provided numerous incentives to make your visit even more enjoyable.
Firstly, if you sign a team up in January, you’ll automatically receive a free trial game to help you find the right league for your team. Just choose your nearest club and book your free game to get started.
Boasting state-of-the-art five and seven-a-side arenas with the latest ProTurf playing surfaces across over 500 enclosed, floodlit pitches, Goals is the ultimate destination for great goalkeepers, dogged defenders, magnificent midfielders and super scorers.
Goals have over 130,000 players every week, with every one of their pitches FA accredited. Every centre has its own fully licensed sports bar with BT Sports, free wi-fi and function rooms.
If the opportunity to enjoy a free game with your mates wasn’t enough, Goals are also offering you the chance of another freebie when you sign up. Just book a pitch online, prepay for seven consecutive weeks and you get an eighth game totally free!
Goals also has plenty on offer for the budding Kevin de Bruyne’s out there, with venues across the country offering special deals for Championship Parties for 10 children at just £75 (£7.50 per child).
The Championship Party has 90 minutes of on-pitch action in one of Goals’ safe, fully enclosed all-weather 5-a-side floodlit arenas plus party food served in the clubhouse afterwards.
With a range of optional extras including a host for the full two hours, birthday cake, party invites, bootbags, trophies and medals, a Goals party is an experience your child will never forget.
Adults are well-catered for too, with Goals offering a free £50 bar voucher if you book a function. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or a staff night out, you will have a dedicated events manager to help you organise everything and allow you to relax and enjoy the occasion.
Much like City wanting Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez despite their wealth of attacking riches, Goals aren’t finished with special events just yet.
Fast 4s is a fun and challenging new spin on the traditional 5-a-side setup, with four players per team, no goalkeepers and smaller goals leading to 30 minutes of fast and furious play.
With coaching academies, holiday camps, women’s leagues, bubble football and walking football, Goals genuinely has all the bases covered.
Goals’ loyalty scheme, which rewards regular players with vouchers that can be used to pay for post-match meals and drinks, is another added bonus that makes Goals the perfect destination to try out Pep’s ‘total football’ ethos.
With freebies and special offers, January really is the month to dust off your boots and get down to Goals.
For football fans everywhere, playing on a pristine pitch with your mates at one of the many centres from the best five and seven-a-side providers is the ideal way to play the beautiful game.
