Exciting breaking news from Ballers HQ is that we are soon to take over the running of the current leagues at Stockport Sports Village, with a view to adding extra leagues as we go on.
Currently SSV has a THURSDAY evening 6-a-side league, which starts a new season on 4th July, and there is currently room to accomodate THREE MORE TEAMS.
Once that league has started, we will be looking to get a WEDNESDAY league back up and running. The Wednesday league used to be one of the most popular league nights at SSV, so we hope to see a lot of the old teams back when we get that up and running.
For any of the existing teams who are concerned about an outside operator coming in and taking over the leagues given what happened previously, we would hope that none of the issues that arose before would be repeated. We are working in partnership with Life Leisure on this, we are not just hiring their pitches and trying to get teams to sign up to contracts. We will be primarily responsible for the administration of the league in terms of housing the tables, results and fixtures on the SK Ballers website, along with the same FULL PLAYER STATS AND PROFILES that the players of our current leagues enjoy (appearances, goals, MOTM’s, win percentages, clean sheets etc). We will have the weekly communication with teams with regards to confirming league fixtures and ensuring your opposition are also attending, and we will do what we can to get you a game on the odd week where your opposition might not be available. We pride ourselves on being as flexible as possible, so as long as you work with us everything will be fine!
We are excited to get started, and with the existing league finishing next week, a tournament will be held on 27th June, before the new league starts the week after, on the 4th July. This will give us a bit of time to have a smooth handover with Life Leisure, meaning everything is in place, good to go, and hopefully with a full league by the league start date.
If any of the current teams have any questions about anything, or if you’ve got a team that wants to join in time for the new season, call or text 07809252658, or complete a ‘Join A League’ form from the homepage.
