Pickup Soccer in Atlanta

About SOPFC Pickup Soccer

We are soccer enthusiasts who organize Intown Atlanta pickup soccer games open to players of all skill levels in the community!

Join our Meetup group to view upcoming pickup sessions.

We reserve turf and grass fields specifically for pickup soccer, provide clean pinnies to distinguish teams, and have organizers on hand to keep things fun and friendly for both competitive and novice players. All we ask from you is a positive attitude and $5 fee per session to cover the costs of fields, lights, organizers, and laundry.

Our pickup soccer sessions often involve up to three simultaneous 8v8 or 9v9 games, so it's important to RSVP for every pickup event on our Meetup.com group here. Browse all of our upcoming soccer events on our Meetup, including opportunities to play in our league games, rooftop soccer tournaments, and indoor soccer games.

Pickup Rules

Atlanta Pickup Soccer Game

Our pickup soccer games are a great way to get to know our club better. Whether you're a pro, or someone who hasn't touched the ball in decades, we welcome you to participate. The rules below are a way of ensuring our pickup games stay fun and friendly for everyone.

THE RULES

  1. The first rule of Sons of Pitches FC is, YOU TALK ABOUT SONS OF PITCHES FC: tell a friend to join our Meetup and play too!
  2. No running or warming up on the track.
  3. Positive attitudes only.
  4. Call your own fouls, and no one else's. No proxy wars. That's how world wars start.
  5. If someone calls a foul, you must respect the call.
  6. No slide tackling.
  7. No corner kicks.
  8. Kick-in from the sides instead of throw-ins.
  9. Last player back (or a designated keeper) may use their hands in front of the goal, if the goal is at least 6' x 12' size.

THE PITCH

Each pitch has a 6' x 12' goal, although limited RSVP games may use smaller goals.

The full length of the field is divided into 3 equal pitches at maximum capacity.

THE GAMES

Limited RSVP sessions usually consist of one pitch and three teams, with one team rotating off every 10 minutes.

Pickup sessions utilizing all three pitches will rotate evenly based on how many teams are waiting to play. At maximum session capacity, each field will only rotate up to three teams max (one team rotates off every 10 minutes), so players will play 20 minutes at a time, then wait 10 minutes, etc.
