Planet Football VIP League is a new 7-A-Side competition aimed at Players over the age of 35 years. The inaugural season kicked off on Friday 20th January 2017, with 6 teams all competing to win the first major piece of silverware. This league will include Home & Away fixtures, although all games will be played at Planet Football Stadium. As this is a fun, social yet competitive league we have made a few changes to our regular rules to make sure it remains this way.
- No Sliding tackles are permitted.
- Must have a minimum of 2 players over the age of 40 on the pitch during the game
- These players need to wear Planet wristbands (so the referee can check)
- Bookings (Yellow Cards) – Incur a fine of 100 thb
- Sending Off (Red Card) – Incur a fine of 300 thb.
At the end of each season (final round of fixtures) there will be an awards party in which the usual trophies & medals will be given out, Plus each team gets a crate of beer and some food.
Each week the games will be played from 6.30pm and ending at 9.30pm, with 3 fixtures per week. Games will consist of two 25 minute halves. We started season 3 on Friday 8th September, with 7 teams all competing to win the title, the teams are listed below (unfortunately Academy pulled out after 1 round of fixtures):
