Keen On Cape Town

5-a-side soccer in Cape Town

Posted on October 17th, 2011

We’re lucky enough to have a number of quality 5-a-side soccer venues here in Cape Town. Being a keen soccer player myself, I know that it’s sometimes difficult to find a regular venue, so these facilities can be very handy. If you enjoy a good game of social footie or you’re looking to join a competitive league, then the following 5-a-side options could be exactly what you’re looking for.

    Hi Adrian,

    I agree, we are very lucky to be living in such a fruitful city where there’s something to do in every corner. You should come check out the 5 a side venue at the Italian Club of Cape Town where you can also enjoy a pizza and a beer after your game without any noise restrictions. We also offer birthday parties, leagues, socials and super socials!

    Keeping enjoying the awesomeness of the MOTHER CITY!!!!
    Kind regards,
    ICCT 5v5

    Hi, I recently moved to Cape town and looking to join a team, preferably in Montague Gardens since that is the closest to where I stay. If anyone one is short of a player, please let me know.
