Go for goal at our Football Networking Event

TheBusinessDesk.com has launched its first Football Networking Event in the East Midlands.

Taking place at tWhat A Goal in Leicester from 10.30am-2pm on  Wednesday November 2, this alternative event will be in the format of a 5-a-side football tournament catering to medium to large companies who can field a team of 5-7 players.


– 10 Teams of 5-7 players (you can have as many players as you like, with only 5 allowed on the pitch at once, we will enable substitutions to be made every 5 minutes with a small break in play for this to happen)

– Group stage tournament, with two groups of 5 teams each, the top 2 from each group go through to the semi-finals

– 20 minutes a game, 10 minutes a half

– Matches will have FA referees

– Registration begins at 10:30 am for an 11:00 am kickoff

– All players need to wear appropriate footwear and shinpads
