General Information

  • The cost is a one-off price of £325 for the season (Running through Term 1 and Term 2).
  • There can be a maximum of 17 players in each team.
  • No referees are provided and so all games are self-officiating
  • Teams will have matches most weeks (Weather dependant)

Time and Location

Term 1: Wednesday 4th October 2017 until Wednesday 13th December 2017

Term 2: Wednesday 24th January 2018 until Wednesday 25th March 2018

All matches must kick-off at 2pm (and must be finished by 4pm). Matches will be 45 minutes each way with a 10 minute half time interval. Teams not ready by 2.10pm will concede a goal to the opposition; with one further goal being awarded for every additional 5 minutes they are late (unless a valid excuse and notification is given to the opposition to pre warn them).

Note: A team may kick-off with less than 11 players, though a minimum of 7 is required (the opposition can still field their full team).

All matches will take place on The Downs (all captains will be sent a layout of all the pitches). Please note: matches are all weather dependent and Bristol City Council have the final say on whether or not matches will go ahead. Team Captains will be notified of any cancellations as soon as possible. If the match has been cancelled teams must not play on The Downs.  Any team found doing so will be reprimanded and potentially disqualified from the league.

Health and Safety

There will be two First Aiders on The Downs every Wednesday so please contact them in the event of any accidents or injuries. One will always be stationed by the Cafe by the Watertower. Please report all accidents to the Student Development Coordinator.

Fixtures and Results

The fixtures will be communicated to team captains via email and results are to be submitted via the google form here.

Pitch allocation

The Student Development Coordinator will email the pitch allocation to the Captains on Wednesday morning by 10.30am once confirmation is received from Bristol City Council (who own The Downs).
