Use the neutral

The attacking team in this game always has a numerical advantage because it can use neutral attackers to set up chances of scoring goals.

Can the attackers utilise their numerical advantage to create a shooting opportunity?


How to set it up

Use a 40×30 yards area with a goal at each end. You need three teams of three players, plus two goalkeepers.

How to play it

  1. Two teams play 3v3 on the small pitch.
  2. The other team acts as neutrals that play for the team in possession, with one player on each wing and one on the pitch.
  3. You can put rules on the neutral players if needed such as limiting touches on the ball and allowing or not allowing them to score.

Whose turn next?

  • The game is played for a set time period and you keep scores.
  • Teams take turns to act as the neutral players.
