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 Winter 2014-15 permit season, we will schedule 3 games per week at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm: Mondays and Tuesdays at Braddock Road (Clifton), and 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 Winter 2014-15 season and are $50.

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

Winter 2014-15 Starting

Winter 2014-15 Update.


Congratulations on a successful Fall 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 Fall showed how are teams are improving and how much parity there truly is between all sides.  The finals featured Sparks against Sex Pistols in the first finals for Sex Pistols against perennial winners Sparks.  Sparks scored first with Six Pistols getting an equalizer before the half. The deciding goal was a PK for a foul in the box. The score ended 2-1 with the championship going to Six Pistols. 


Congratulations to Six Pistols.


Well played by all teams.




Going into our Winter 2014-15 season please look to the schedule on this website as it is slightly more complicated than it has been in the past.  We will schedule games for Mon, Tue or Wed night and use Fri nights for scrimmages or re-scheduled games.


Looking forward to a great Winter season!
