The FA Umbro Fives: fancy a trip to Wembley with your team? by Aaron› 5 Apr 2011
Many of us might have given up our dreams of scoring the winner at a hallowed venue years ago, but with The FA Umbro Fives its never too late! The tournament, now in its fifth year, is open for 2011, with the prospect of a match at Wembley for the best teams. Regional heats are now underway for the tournament, with regional finals in May. The finest teams are then invited to Wembley on 5th June for the big match at the biggest of grounds.
So, do you think you and your mates could be up to the challenge? Last year over 1,300 teams entered the tournament, which is open to both male and female teams - you can check out some of the action and the winners here. It costs just £25 to enter the tournament, and regional matches are held all over the country so there's bound to be some local talent for you to take on.
Even if your team isn't up to scratch, the FA Umbro Fives is still a great place for you to win - there's weekly competitions being held on their Facebook page, with signed boots, shirts and all sorts of fantastic Umbro gear up for grabs.
