Six days a week we run the best small sided leagues in Bolton. This includes our 5, 7, 9 and 11-a-side leagues, along with our Youth leagues which take place on a Friday night.  Not only are our leagues competitive, but so are our prices.

Team Of The Month: Vamos Campeones

Each month we pick a football “Team of the month” and give them some goodies, which are kindly supplied by our sponsors USN.

The team can be picked for a number of reasons, whether it’s because of their commitment to the Arena leagues, they had an epic fail in their last match or they pulled of an insane bit of Tekkers!

February’s team of the month is Rob Whites’ Vamos Campeones of the Tuesday 5s Premier League. This being their 10th anniversary since registering to play at the Arena seems very fitting to reward a team based upon outstanding contribution both on and off the pitches.

Players such as Seb Miller, Nick Hunger, Stu Latchford, John Nuttall whilst still in their early twenties are regarded as veterans within our leagues. One particular quality of Vamos’ is whether rain or shine, BWFC, Utd games or any other big live game they’ll always fulfill their fixture, always display exemplary sportsmanship albeit a win, loss or draw. The perfect role model of a committed and loyal five-a-side team.
