11v11, or 11-a-side, is perhaps the best known format of football, thanks to the world famous Premier League, but the game can take a variety of shapes. We have referees for every format. The main types are listed below:
Futsal is small sided football played indoors.
Small sided is the most widely played form of the sport and covers 5v5, 7v7 and 9v9.
When starting to play football at an early age young participants are introduced to mini soccer. It is similar to the small sided game but is non competitive, enjoyable and gives young players an opportunity to try and develop their football skills.
There are dozens of referees throughout England who are qualified to officiate in blind or cerebral palsy (CP) football.
If you would like to learn more about refereeing football in these formats, look out for courses taking place at your local County FA [link to County FA contacts page].
