5-A-Side football league arrives in Shoreditch

The UK's first professional 5-A-Side football league announced its arrival in Shoreditch this week.

N5L, which plans to launch next year, brings together some of the leading names from other variations of the beautiful game such as freestyle football and futsal.

The owners hope that the league, which will see teams from UK cities pitted against each other, will provide football lovers in the summer months when the 11-a-side version takes a break.

London Live's Luke Blackall went to speak to one of the founders and some of the players. He also tried his feet at some football trickery.
