Following closures due to Gateshead Council's Covid-19 response, we are introducing a phased reopening of leisure facilities. It has not yet been confirmed when this activity will restart.

We will update the website with any changes so please check back regularly for updates.

With it's double figure scorelines, questionable head-height decisions and next-goal-winner rule. You can't beat goals from the halfway line, silky stepovers and cheeky nutmegs, or the great workout this indoor game provides. If 11-a-side is the beautiful game, 5-a-side is for the love of the game.

GO Gateshead has regulation 5-a-side courts available at Gateshead Leisure Centre, Gateshead International Stadium and Birtley Leisure Centre.

For those that want to play the smaller sided game outdoors, Gateshead International Stadium's 3G pitch provides an all-weather surface that replicates the feel of grass, with a shock absorption layer to minimise impact on joints.
