If you are looking to register for one of our leagues, it's a really quick and simple process. Just follow the steps below that tells you everything you need to know:

We currently operate from facilities in the following locations:
For most leagues there is an entry fee but for some we will offer a reduced price and in some instances we will offer this for free. The cost of matches each week are a minimum of N10,000 (depends on facility) for the whole team, which should be paid online or by bank transfer prior to arriving for matches.
The match fee goes towards offsetting some of the hire cost of the pitch, the cost of the match manager, use of the match balls which are essential to the playing of the competitive sport and general admin.
Match fees can be paid via the website, at registration or subsequently through your profile. Payments can also be made via bank transfer. Please contact us for our bank details.
