  • (1888PressRelease) March 27, 2012 - The guidelines for the third edition of the Gulder Ultimate Five Aside Football Competition (GUFAF) have been released. The GUFAF competition is an amateur football tournament aimed at discovering Nigerians talented in football.

    As the name connotes, each of the participating teams will have five players slugging it out on the field of play. According to the regulations of the game, participants should be 18 years and above and must not be registered in any of the professional and amateur leagues organized by the Nigeria Football Federation and Nigerian Premier League Board. Entry for the competition is free.

    Furthermore, intending players must be registered with only one participating Club in the Gulder Ultimate Five-Aside Football throughout the competition. The rules however state that intending players will only be allowed to transfer from one club to another if such transfer is strictly within the city of participation and such is communicated and endorsed by the coordinators.

    An official of Nigerian Breweries Plc, makers of Gulder beer, said: "The rules and regulations have been released to guide our intending participants on the dos and don'ts of Season Three of the Gulder Ultimate Five Aside Football Competition. Preparations are at an advanced stage and this year's edition will overshadow the ones held previously. These rules and regulations are available on the Gulder website and can easily be downloaded."

    He added that intending teams can also register to participate in the third season of Gulder Ultimate Five Aside Football competition via the same website.

    The official also said that the regional selection process, which will be held in locations across the country, will kick off in April. According to him: "The Gulder team recently met with respective collaborating agencies to draw up a roadmap for this year's edition. Suffice it to state that the resolve of the Gulder brand to discover budding talents and raise the awareness of grassroots football, through the Five Aside Football competition, is stronger than ever. All I can say at this point is that: may the best team emerge when the final whistle is blown at the end of the competition."

    The Gulder Ultimate Five Aside Football Competition was first staged in 2010. While the winning team goes home with N5 million, the teams in the first and second runner-up positions earn N2 million and N1 million respectively. Sholly Babes Football Club of Lagos won last year's competition. The inaugural edition was won by 401 Road Planners of Ajegunle. While the highest goal scorer is awarded N100, 000, the Most Valuable Player receives one thousand dollars cash gift.
