The team sizes are usually between 14 to 16. There are 11 players on the field at a time including a goalkeeper.
Each player should be wearing Albany shirt, shorts and socks for their game. If you have not yet purchased this, or don’t have one from last year (or handed down from a sibling), please see here. Players must also be wearing shin pads and boots for their game – these can be purchased at any sporting outlet, however we recommend going to Ultra Football Albany, and shopping our recommended products by selecting "Club" on their website, "Albany United FC" then using access code AUFC20.
