New players needed

Stamford Indoor Football Group is on the lookout for more people to join our fun, friendly 5-aside games every Tuesday.

Stamford Indoor Football was set up and designed for those who don’t want to commit to a league team, but love a kick-about.

Since we began in January 2018, we’ve continued to grow with new people regularly joining our football group. But now we are in need of some new players to boost numbers.

The COVID pandemic and lockdown meant a lot of changes for everyone, and the Stamford Indoor Football Group has also been affected. A number of regular players have left the group temporarily due to change in circumstance since lockdown (such as new families!) among other reasons.

We still have a healthy core of players, but we could do with even more so we can more easily hit the 12 needed for each game on Tuesday.

So whether you’re looking to improve your fitness, get more regular exercise, meet new people or just enjoy a casual game of football, you’re welcome to join us.

Join our WhatsApp group to get involved. Learn more about how to join a game here.

When will Stamford Indoor Football be back?

Well, this has been some hiatus. Sports and COVID don’t really mix, which has meant Stamford Indoor Football had to temporarily shut. No indoor football for over a year!

Will Stamford Indoor Football return soon? Will it ever return?!

The short answer is, yes.

The slightly less short answer to when we will return is… it is complicated.

While indoor exercise and classes have been allowed to return, the small print around this allowance is related to actual “organised” groups.

We have spoken with the sports centre and agreed that we aren’t really in a position to return.

Added to that the fact that having 12 sweaty adults running around in close proximity to each other indoors didn’t feel right either.

It felt too soon and rather than tease you all with a few games and then (fingers crossed this doesn’t happen) have it ripped away from us if another lockdown were to be imposed, we decided to wait it out a little longer.

We hope to return once all lockdown restrictions have ended and we hope our existing members, as well as new faces from the area, will support us when we do.

What does Stamford Indoor Football look like?

We pride ourselves on a friendly but competitive atmosphere at Stamford Indoor Football, but it can be hard to describe what it’s like to others.

So we thought we’d show you. Every week is different, depending on who is playing (and form of course!) But hopefully this gives you a good idea of what the games are like. Enjoy!
