Intramural football leagues

Play in a fun, yet semi-competitive league which is regularly officiated by qualified referees. Enter a team from your hall, course, group of friends, or join as an individual and we will try and put you in a team.

Details of the leagues for 2020-21 will be available soon.

League details

  • If you enter a team from your hall, let us know who you are representing as your results will count towards a UWE Bristol central halls league.
  • Teams will usually have one match per week, but there may be occasions where they have two matches or a rest week.
  • Please book early to secure your spot in the league. There will be a link to sign up in your welcome email but you can also contact move@uwe.ac.uk if you have questions.
  • Leagues include 11 a side, 5 a side and 6 a side.
  • Joining a league is free with MOVE membership.
  • Please see the guidelines for acceptable footwear on the Centre for Sport Astro and Hillside Gardens 4G pitch. You will not be allowed to enter in unacceptable footwear.
  • When signing up to a league, you commit to attend each fixture/session; if you miss a large percentage of these fixtures/sessions (and have not contacted us with a valid reason) you may forfeit your right to book in the future.

Mars Just Play

'Just Play' kickabouts are great for when you want to play without committing to a weekly game, a complicated league or fancy team strips. It’s all about loose, casual play.

League details

  • Mars Just Play sessions are really popular, so please ensure you book on early to avoid disappointment. Please arrive on time otherwise you may be refused entry.
