Event details: 
London Fives returns* on the 5th/6th September Iron Five arrive at the fantastic Hackney Marshes Centre in East London for the expanded Open and Women's outdoors 5-a-side competition.
*Obviously whether this event will proceed is highly dependent on the progression of the pandemic and the government's and UKU's advice about when sport can resume. Sign up will only open when there is certainty about whether these can go ahead.
What's going on
- 5-a-side Iron Man competition (no subs!)
- Indoors rules, pitches and game length, but outdoors (indoor weather is not guaranteed...)
- Open and women's divisions (if we have sufficient numbers)
- Total 48 teams (with capacity for more in needed)
- Saturday night party (though I suspect this will be extremely limited due to corona virus restrictions)
For anyone new, or in need of a recap, Iron Five is an 5-a-side Iron Man competition. That means no more than 5 people per team. Playing every point. You are allowed to bring/borrow a 6th player in the case of injuries.
Matches follow indoors rules, size and timings. Only this time we're outdoors with wind (because getting a big enough sports hall in london is basically impossible...).
We are provisionally looking at hosting 48 teams, though we have space to stretch to more if need be. It is our aim to hold a Women's division alongside men's depending on numbers.
Our new location is the brilliant Hackney Marshes Centre, located next to the Olympic Village in East London. Full transport links will be provided soon.
