    I'm pleased to announce details of the fourth Live At Leeds 5-a-side Football Tournament - taking place on Monday 5th May from 2pm at Goals Soccer Centre off Kirkstall Road, Leeds.

    The competition is really in the swing of things now and hopefully you are all aware of it. 32 teams play in 8 groups of 4, followed by a knockout stage which means each team involved is guaranteed to play at least 3 games. Previous winners have been The Pigeon Detectives (2011), Straight Up (2012) and Philophobia (2013)

    Last year we had an overwhelming response to play in the football tournament. We're prioritising bands and venues involved directly in Live At Leeds 2014, so if you would like to play this year, please let me know by replying to me with your team name ASAP!!

    As ever, we're trying to expand extra activities at Goals, and provide greater food & drink options this year for those who just want to come and support the day. This year, we will again have the ELFM Awning Stage, with live music running from 1pm, as well as more events tbc for Martin House.

    We are also hoping to have another live draw for the group stage, this year on Wednesday 9th April at Brudenell Social Club as part of our Unconference Launch / AIM Social event

    If you want to take part, drop me an email / DM / Twitter me and I'll send you confirmation details.

    I wish I was good at football. It's like I was cursed with that sport. I'm like that ref that trys to kick the ball backwards and falls over. Sounds good though.

    It certainly looks a good event and it's pleasing to see it return again.

    I'm a decent keeper, but I'm always away on Bank Holiday Monday.

    Shame really, cos I'd genuinely love the chance to hack down Simon Glacken.

    I've always wanted to take part in this but inevitably away. Bah.

    I'm actually available for this for the first time ever, so someone just needs to book me for Live At Leeds now.

    If anyone needs a very poor-man's right-footed Jason Wilcox, I'm available.

    After our showing last year, I think we may give this one a miss!

    My tip for you is to concede less goals and score more ... also if you score more than the other team you'll get more numbers in the right hand column

    Steady on Rob...you'll be head-hunted to replace McDermott if you're not careful!

    Anyone is welcome to put their name down for a team, I just might need to prioritise for LAL teams, but usually fit everyone in who wants to play. Drop me a DM

    Bodega Social / DHP
    Clue Records
    Forward Russia
    The Mexanines

    And a bunch more
