Welcome to Football 5-a-side

Football 5-a-Side is open to athletes with a visual impairment, with the possibility of one sighted player as the goalkeeper.

There are five players per team and each game lasts 50 minutes. Rules are the same as in able-bodied Football with certain modifications; the ball makes a noise when it moves, the goalkeepers may be sighted and act as guides during the game, the rest of the team uses eye shades to ensure fairness, there are five players on a team rather than 11, the field of play measurements are smaller and there is no offside rule. The game consists of two halves of 25 minutes each.
