Backpackers FC is a great idea for new arrivals to Perth that want to play football and meet some new people. People that are here long term will have a different perception on Backpackers FC than a backpacker. At the end of the day though whatever your reason is for playing you can meet people and hang out while enjoying a bit of footy!
Not all players can commit to a full season of 5/11-a-side so we also organise regular "Casual" sessions for players passing through or who just want to play when it is convenient.
To cater for these players we run regular casual 5-a-side and 7-a-side sessions where players can just to rock up and play.
There are no referees in Casual Football - all games are played based on "Honesty Rules". Scores are not recorded - we just play for the love of the game - players who are overly competitive will be asked to leave.
**ALL PARTICIPATION IN OUR CASUAL FOOTBALL SESSIONS IS AT THE PLAYERS OWN RISK**
