Free gifts worth over £100 are on offer to teams that sign up for a brand new charity football league which kicks off next month in Knottingley.

The league – which is run by Leisure Leagues, Europe’s largest provider of small sided soccer – kicks off on June 13 and will take place at De Lacy Academy every Tuesday. Games cost £30 and take place between 6-8pm.

There is free entry to the league for a limited time and all teams will receive a free kit for their team.

Teams will then be competing for a range of prizes, including huge custom made trophies, medals and champagne.

A fun, but competitive game is assured – and in a unique move profits from the league will be donated to charity.

All standards are catered for with new business manager Sam Jones saying: “Whether you fancy yourself as the next Lionel Messi, or you are an honest trier who loves the game, then we can find room for you here!

“We have been running leagues for 30 years and we are confident that we can give the same enjoyment to the community of Knottingley that we have already in so many places.”

Qualified referees – with all equipment provided – will be in charge of matches and are backed up by the strongest discipline structure there is, to ensure the games are competitive and fun.

Anyone who wants to register a team can do so on or for more information they can call 0333 1232340.
