WHY JOIN THE FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE?
Our competitive football league ensures you are on top form every week. Our thrilling football knockout tournament makes every game an exciting one. Our freestyle and flair encouraged futsal league guarantees a samba feel to the way the games are played with ball manipulation and goals being the focus of the games.
You will always be playing on the best quality pitches available. Also, games are only called off due to adverse weather conditions and never because of the pitch condition, which means players have the opportunity to maximise their amount of football throughout the season.
OPPORTUNITIES TO WIN MEDALS AND TROPHIES
You don’t have to wait until the end of the traditional football season to win trophies and medals. This competition allows for an increased match vs. reward ratio by having winter tournaments, summer tournaments and super cups. This will also boost player morale and commitment knowing they have more opportunities to win trophies and medals.
SCOUTS IN ATTENDANCE
Our scouting pool and intermediary network allows both scouts and intermediaries to attend regularly on rotation so they have an opportunity to look at all players. This also encourages teams to display their ability at all times.
OPPORTUNITY TO ASSESS YOUR PLAYERS FURTHER
Additional competitive football and futsal allows you to assess your trial, development and elite players in a real, competitive environment. It also allows you to replace training with competitive matches.
DISCOUNTED FUTURE TOURNAMENTS
You can receive a 10% discount on your next FDL league or tournament if another team registers for an FDL competition via your team's referral. All they have to do is mention your club name in the Comments section when filling out the Registration Request Form.
