Northumberland FA are excited to announce a new Over 35’s Flexi-Football League, starting at Benfield Sports Centre.
The aim of this new Over 35’s Flexi-League is to offer an alternative to those who are not able to access the male game during traditional weekend games, or who are looking for additional opportunities to play football.
We are excited to offer a way to play this slightly different format of the game in Northumberland. Flexi-Football is focussed on ensuring that everyone attending leaves games feeling they had some good exercise and an enjoyable game in a friendly and positive environment. We enjoy competitive sport, but this isn’t the sole reason that we play!
The format of the games is to allow “fast football for busy people”. We want players to get all the benefits of regular exercise in a format that works for our modern, busy lifestyles. Furthermore, the Over 35 Flexi-Football League allows players to gain all of these benefits, without committing to long away days, or early meet times. Turn up, play and get home!
