On Saturday 4th of August, as part of the awesome Deptford X festival, Fordham Park will play host its first full Three Sided Football Tournament hosted by the Deptford Three Sided Football Club (DTSFC)
The DTSFC have been hosting games every other Sunday since the beginning of the year and by the sounds of things have become well adept in the tactics and psychology of the game.
Three-sided football (3SF) is a variation of football with three teams playing on a hexagonal pitch with three goals, rather than keeping a record of how many goals you score you instead keep a tally of goals you concede, the winner is the determined by the team that concedes the least. Teams are allowed to forge and break alliances at will, something which I imagine adds a an explosive spark to what would ultimately be a very chaotic, defensive game of get the ball away from our goal. It sounds brilliant!
While I haven’t had a chance to see any of the clubs practice matches I will certainly be heading over to Fordham Park on the 4th to check the tournament out. You should too. KO at 11am
