Small Sided Football

Southern Cross Football Centre’s SPRING 2018 competition will soon be calling for team nominations.

5-a-Side is a fast-paced, high scoring brand of the game played on smaller pitches giving each player more touches on the ball. Having less players means it is easier to organise a team and each player gets more football.

Fun, fast and exciting, 5-a-Side has become hugely popular around the world with reports of 30,000 leagues and 1.5 million adults participating in the UK every week.

Players of all standards and fitness enjoy playing on the world class Southern Cross Football Centre surface under high quality lights with full canteen and change room facilities right by the playing fields.

Where, When and Cost

All matches will be played on the world class synthetic field at the Southern Cross Football Centre, Crawford Road East Lismore. See our full venue information.

Our next competitions for Premier Men, Open men, Open women, over 40’s men & mixed teams will start Tuesday 16th October 2018 & Mixed Juniors will start Thursday 18th October 2018. Both competitions will run for 10 weeks.

Player registration fees will be $120 per person for premier men, $100 per person for open men, women & mixed and $75 per person for juniors. Registration includes team nomination and insurance via the NSW Sporting Injuries Insurance Scheme.

Registration and Nomination

Step 1: The first step is to nominate your team online via 5-a-side Team Nomination Form. Teams nominated will receive confirmation via return email and advice once registrations are open.

Step 2: Once nominated then next step is to register – either creating a new team or registering as an individual player under an existing team via our Registration page.


In order to keep costs as low as possible our competition is registered with the NSW Governments’ Sporting Injuries Insurance Scheme. Whilst injuries may be are rare, it is recommended that before competing each player consider their individual insurance needs and to take out their own personal health insurance if they believe additional cover is required.

For more information on what is covered by the NSW Government Sporting Injuries Insurance Scheme please go to the Sporting Injuries Insurance Information Sheet

The Scheme covers serious injuries (where permanent loss of use is suffered) and death that can unfortunately occur during an authorised sporting activity. Injuries such as twisted ankles, broken hands etc. are not covered. Again, it is recommended that each player take out their own personal health insurance, just in case.
