5 Differences Between Regular and 5-a-side Football
We’re going to be referring to 5-a-side football in this article, but the differences we describe apply equally to 6-a-side and 7-a-side games, for which we also organise leagues.
Number of players
Okay, so this is the obvious one! Association football has 11 players on each team, while 5-a-side has only 5. What this means in terms of play is a shorter, more intense match, with each player taking on a larger role in the game… but more on that later.
Size of the playing area
Length of the match
