FO5SL: Welcome

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

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 2014 permit season, we will schedule 3 games per week at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm: Mondays and Tuesdays at Arrowbrook Park (Herndon), and some Wednesdays and some Fridays at Centreville High School Practice Field (Clifton).  These are fields with an artificial surface and lighting for night games.

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 Fall 2014 season.

Check the menu on the left to see updated league calendars, scores, standings, and photos, and additional information.

Fall 2014 Starting

Fall 2014 Update.


Congratulations on a successful Summer season to all.  It is only through the enthusiasm and love of the game of our players that we continue to grow and thrive!  Thank you all!


The playoffs for Summer showed how are teams are improving and how much parity there truly is between all sides.  The finals featured Old Gits against Marauders in the first finals for Marauders.  After playing to a 3-3 draw in regulation it went to PKs which ended 5-4 and gave the championship to Old Gits. 


Congratulations to Old Gits.


Well played by all teams.




Going into our Fall 2014 season please look to the schedule on this website as it is slightly more complicated than it has been in the past.  This is due to a need to stay away from CHS during home football games for the returning VA high school champions.  The games that would have been scheduled on those Friday nights will be played the preceding Tuesday night at Arrowbrook park in Herndon.


Looking forward to a great Fall season!
