There are more than £100 worth of free gifts for all teams who enter an exciting six-a-side football league which kicks off in Beckton soon.

The league is run by Leisure Leagues, Europe’s largest provider of small sided soccer and kicks off on February 22.

It will take place at West Ham United Community Sports Trust every Sunday. Games cost £28 and happen between the times of 6-8pm. All players will receive free shirts and shorts together with a waiving of the usual £25 registration fee.

Teams will then be competing for a range of top prizes including custom made trophies and medals for the top three teams. There is also a chance to play at the National six-a-side championships where they will get the chance to represent Beckton and really hit the jackpot, as last year’s winners scooped some top prizes.

A fun, but competitive game is assured – and in a unique move profits from the league will be donated to charity, for which Leisure Leagues have been praised by, amongst others, David Cameron and Prince Charles.

All standards are catered for. New Business Manager Chris Rowntree said: “Whether you fancy yourself as the next Lionel Messi, or you are an honest trier who loves the game, or just a plain old Titus Bramble, then we can find room for you here!

“We have been running leagues for 30 years and we are confident that we can give the same enjoyment to the community of Beckton that we have already in so many places.”

Qualified refs – with all equipment provided – will be in charge of the league, and are backed up by the strongest discipline structure there is, to ensure the games are competitive and fun.

Boasting the most interactive website in five and six-a-side football, players will be able to follow their latest results, league tables, read the latest blogs, and post their own profiles online.

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