5 a side football pitch is a much smaller sports pitch where 5 players on each side play against each other. There is no standard size pitch or penalty area due to different locations and restrictions on certain sites. The sizes of the 5 a side synthetic surface is dependent upon budgets, funding and prices aswell as site restrictions.
The goalkeeper is only allowed in the penalty area and and most 5-a-side leagues have the rules of no overhead height for the football. There is no offside rule and football players generally participate in a game of 5 aside football for the duration of 40minutes.
New 3G pitches are the latest innovation for 5-a-side pitches and these are a synthetic turf infilled with sand and rubber to give the playing characteristics. The 3G artificial grass is an ideal football surface and many old tennis courts are being resurfaced into a MUGA so that a varied selection of sports can be played.
5-a-side football pitch costs approximately 80k dependent on the type on sports fencing, sports floodlighting required. The 5 a side football pitch dimensions usually are 30m x 20m but do vary due to budgets and funding.
5 a side 3rd generation football pitches are all weather pitches that can be used all year round and give the playing characteristics of natural grass. The 3 g pitches are constructed with a drainage within the sub base so no 5-a-side games should be called off unless heavy snow. There is a 4th generation turf on the market which has no infill however the 4G is generally used on full size football fields and we feel the best surface is a 3G sports grass surface.
