The 5-a-side League
Forbidden City FC has a number of teams and players participating in the ClubFootball operated 5-a-side leagues in Beijing.
Throughout the year ClubFootball organises four 7 week seasons. There are 11 divisions in total and each division has eight teams. Each Division plays on the same day each week and matches are run throughout the week and played at the artificial pitches at the East Gate of Chaoyang Park and at Lido Side Park. Forbidden City Football Club have two teams entered, competing as Forbidden City and Summer Palace.
Our teams are not necessarily made up of our eleven a-side squad members and are designed to attract new players into our ‘family’. If you fancy playing some football in Beijing, but are not sure about playing 11’s then join us for playing some 5-a-side.
We strongly encourage everyone who plays football with FCFC to have at least basic insurance that will cover sporting injury. Medical bills in Beijing can be extraordinarily high, especially, but not only, if you get treated at an international clinic in the city. Therefore, please make sure that you are properly insured. Please understand that Forbidden City FC cannot accept responsibility for any injury that occurs while playing football with us.
