Give Me Five will also report from the amateur six-a-side and five-a-side leagues across Europe, with its original programme ‘Too Good To Miss/ C’est Pas Bien De Se Moquer’ a mix of the best of the best goals, balls, ratings and an assessment of the points on the ground – and the overall league performance.
“Give Me Five reflects the passion for football that amateurs bring to the pitch and to their game. The five -a-side and six-a-side game is fast and furious, there are domestic and international rivalries, like in any other sport, and each team is vying to become unbeatable.

Give Me Five is created in partnership with The Five, the French organisation behind indoor sports from Five A Side Football to Ping-Pong. The Five has become the home of amateur leagues, providing a platform for the community and harnessing the authenticity of grass roots football and passion for the game.
