about floodlit soccer

BACKGROUND & HISTORY

  • Floodlit Soccer League Ltd. (FSL) was formed in August 2002 following the collapse of Nightowls International Leagues PLC and we filled the void left by their sudden departure. We quickly grew in size and popularity increasing teams from 22 teams to 64 teams in just 2 years.

  • Nightowls was originally set up for retired and older players but in its new format, the FSL developed to cater for all ages, grades and abilities by providing a competitive game of eleven a side football on astro turf, Monday to Friday, all year round.​

  • Now renamed Waterford Floodlit Soccer (WFS) and focussing mainly on 7 a Side, we remain locally owned and run and our continued success can be attributed to many factors. but simplicity is the key.

  • Anyone can enter a team with no need for committees, grounds or other complications.​

  • Waterford Floodlit Soccer has responded to demand and now concentrates mainly on 7 a Side leagues, touranments and events. W.F.S. is unique in the fact that we are self regulated and do not have an affiliation to UEFA, FIFA or any other governing body. This means that we are free to quickly adjust rules and regulations to suit demands.​

  • Apart from having a guaranteed weekly game all participants also enjoy other benefits including:​

  1. Full fixture list issued before first match to allow forward planning.

  2. Exclusive offers and discounts with our business partners

  3. Unique, balanced formats to ensure fair chance for all teams to win trophies and medals.

  4. Free team website advertising.
