Biggest ever five-a-side festival kicks off EURO 2020 countdown

With 100 days to go until the opening match of UEFA EURO 2020 in Rome, a free and inclusive football festival has been launched to get everyone involved in the beautiful game.

THE FA FIVES is a fun five-a-side festival celebrating this summer's European tournament. Free to enter, THE FA FIVES is open to everyone, with 15 different male and female categories across adult, veteran, disability, youth and walking football.

The fun starts on 2nd and 3rd May with FA FIVES Round One events hosted at over 120 venues across the country. Over 5,000 teams and up to 50,000 participants will be looking to progress to one of five festival-style Regional Finals on the weekend of 30th and 31st May.

All roads lead to Wembley as the Regional winners play in the National Finals against the backdrop of the iconic Wembley Stadium on 12 and 13 June, the opening weekend of UEFA EURO 2020.

Whether you win or lose, everyone who plays in Round One will be in with a chance of netting UEFA EURO 2020 tickets for England's opening game against Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

It's easy to sign up as a team or an individual – just go to www.thefa.com/thefafives and register by 23rd April.
