FO5SL: Welcome

"You don't stop playing because you get get old because you stop playing" 

 Welcome to the website for the Fairfax Over-50 Soccer League (FO5SL). 

Now entering our 4th year! 

That's FO5SL, not FOSSIL.

We are based in northern Virginia and are dedicated to providing the opportunity to play the beautiful game to players over the age of 50.

We strive to play a competitively balanced game with sufficient player restraint that allows us all to go to work the next morning.

We play full-field 11 v 11 with paid licensed referees. 

We have just added a 6th team, and we are always looking for new players to fill out teams or to begin a new one.

We have permits to use Fairfax County fields. During the Fall 2015 permit season, we will schedule 3 games per week at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm: Mondays and Tuesdays at Arrowbrook Park (Herndon), and Wednesdays at Poplar Tree Park (Chantilly).  These are fields with an artificial surface and lighting for night games.  We also have a permit for Fridays at Poplar Tree Park (Chantilly). We will use this for scrimmages, practice and to re-schedule games that have inclement weather.

Player dues cover the costs of the fields, professional referees, and other expenses. The dues are paid to the league and usually come to under $6/game.  New players are required to buy a team jersey ($20). Fees are subject to change as costs change.  Dues are being collected for the Spring 2015 season and are $50 - $70 if you have not played already in 2015. We are applying for membership with MDCVSA this year.  More to come.
