Community 6 A Side League comes to Knutsford

By on July 24, 2018

A chance to fly to Germany on holiday –  and a chance to benefit charities at the same time – is on offer as a brand new community 6 a side football competition gets ready for kick off in Knutsford.

The league – which is run by Leisure Leagues, Europe’s largest provider of small sided soccer – kicks off on 20th August and will take place at Egerton Youth Club every Monday. Games cost £30 – the first game is free –  and happen between the times of 8-10pm.

The Leisure Leagues Monthly Star Prize, which is drawn at the end of the season and broadcast live on the firm’s Facebook Page, is an all-expenses paid trip for the whole team to a Bundesliga match.

In addition to the health benefits to players and the chance to win the holiday, there is another reason to sign up too, Leisure Leagues are the only football provider who donates the profits from the league to charities – with Cancer Research UK and The Dogs Trust amongst the recent beneficiaries.

New Business Manager, Sam Jones admitted he couldn’t wait to get cracking and said: “We have been running leagues for 30 years and we are really looking forward to bringing our unique brand of football here.”

Anyone who wants to register a team can do so on   or for more information they can call 0333 123 2340.
