"You don't stop playing because you get old...you get old because you stop playing"
Welcome to the website for the Fairfax Over-50 Soccer League (FO5SL).
Now in our 10th year of play!
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 10 teams in 2 divisions for the Winter 2017-18 season, and plan to have more teams soon.
GAMES: Matches are held at Fairfax County fields. Based on allocations and the time of year, matches usually start between 8pm-9pm (Winter games start at 7pm) and are scheduled 3-4 nights/week in the Herndon, Chantilly, or Centerville areas. All fields are on an artificial surface, with excellent lighting for night games. See the calendar for more current details.
FEES: Player dues cover the costs of the fields, professional referees, limited insurance, official player cards, and other expenses.Team Dues are $2,200 collected 2x a year. We also will take individual players and either place them on a current team or hold them until we have enough to make a new one. We are members of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA).
JOINING: Contact me (Kurt) at the email below if you are interested in joining. Click on “Handouts” on the menu to download a registration form. If you turn 50 (or older) during 2017 you are eligible to play.
Check the menu on the left to see updated league calendars, scores, standings, and photos, and additional information.

Fall 2018 is complete! A great season in both Division with Greengos capturing the regular season championship and Six Pistols the playoff championship in Division B and BD Warriors getting both the regular and playoff championships in Division A.
NO REST!! Winter 2017-18 starts NOW! For variety, during the Winter season the format will change. All teams in the league will play every other team in the league 1 time. This will also allow flexibility in case of inclement weather cancelling games. REMINDER: Due to Fairfax County regulations all games will start at 7pm during the winter. All lights will go out at 9pm. We have 3 fields: EC Lawrence #2, Centreville High School and Poplar Tree Park. See the calendar on this site for more details. Dress Warmly, Winter Rules apply.
NOTE: Fairfax County Policy is that if any portion of a field has snow or ice cover then that field is closed. Removal or attempted melting of snow or ice is PROHIBITED. Violations of these rules could result in the league losing permits and losing the right to getting future permits.
It's going to be great - Cold - But Great!

Ah, the change in the weather...from snow to 85 and high humidity.
Ah, the change in the league! From 6 teams to 8 teams!
Congratulations to XCavsO50 for winning the playoffs beating Fall Champions Six Pistols 5-2
Well played by all, overall it was a great season.
Summer 2016 starts right away!
Summer season will be a little shortened due to changes in the Fairfax County permit schedule. Watch the FO5SL calendar for games, there will be periodic updates.
