5-a-side.com is a UK based football blog dedicated to catering for the greatly overlooked small sided football players. There are now more people playing small-sided football than there are playing the 11-a-side game. 5-a-side.com provides this vast and ever-growing audience with the kind of material they desire and deserve.
Rather than bloated rumour mills or gossip columns that are more befitting of the pages of ‘heat’ magazine, we focus on useful hints, tips, reviews, interviews and other engaging content that has built a loyal and committed following of proper football fans and players.
This means our audience are active and interested in football, particularly small-sided varieties, and are interested in and engage with football related products and services.

5-a-side.com is a rapidly growing website that is passionate about football and bringing the very best content to our readers. We look forward to working with like-minded brands as we do so.
We have worked with the following brands to create bespoke advertising solutions, which have both appealed directly to our readers, and increased the exposure of the advertiser’s brand to a knowledgeable, active grass-roots footballing fan base.
Playfootball – We worked with this UK 5-a-side provider to provide exclusive sidebar advertising, running over the course of several months to increase bookings via their website.
Mitre – When Mitre, producer of footballs, kits and accessories, launched a marketing campaign aimed at increasing brand visibility among 5-a-side players we collaborated with them on several articles which appeared on our site. As well as on our own site, these articles featured on Mitre’s own player hub: Mitre Star.
