IFL Madrid has its first set of league champions for 2015-2016.

Before their final game on Sunday, one point separated Los Hombres de Paco (with 29) and FC Británico (with 28).

And as fate would have it, that final game was against each other, turning the match into a straight playoff for the title.

Last year's champions, FC Británico de Madrid, knew only victory would do for them, while Los Hombres de Paco had the slender psychological advantage of knowing a draw would suffice to snatch the championship from their rivals.

Somebody had to hit the jackpot, and in the...

Hi captains, thanks for getting your results in. Any of you who still haven't entered or confirmed your results from Sunday, please do so as soon as you possibly can. We have to calculate the opening tables, generate all the fixtures for the divisions in the second phase of the season and get it up on the website. We can't start to do this until all results are finalised and we do it in our free time, so please help us out and get these in by Tuesday afternoon.

About the league

When the IFL Madrid 5-a-side Football League started, it was a time before millionaire footballers, advanced sports medicine and club logo-branded napkins. It was the year Liverpool won their seventeenth English league title, Real Madrid's Quinta del Buitre were on their third of five back-to-back Liga championships while PSV Eindhoven and later Holland were crowned champions of Europe. 

There was Reagan, Thatcher, Gorbachev, two Germanies and two TV channels if you lived in Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo was a toddler, as likely to lick a ball as kick it. Lionel Messi was a baby, clapped by his mum if he walked across the room without falling over. Professional footballers had very short shorts, moustaches and brown carpets. Permed hairstyles had not yet completely surrendered to the mullet ....... it was 1988 and the world was a rather different place.

A group of English expatriates had started playing football together on dirt pitches and handball courts, and that year they decided to turn their kickabouts into something more organised and competitive.

In comparison to the transformation of professional football and excluding the comings and goings of some really bad hairstyles, the IFL has survived the last 27 years almost unchanged. What has altered is the international make-up of the league, to the extent that a recent survey of team captains revealed the current crop of players includes more nationalities than the last World Cup.

The IFL Madrid League always welcomes new players and new teams ...... Interested in playing?

Rules

Everyone can sign up. In order to make it as fair as possible for everyone, there are a couple of rules:

  1. If you sign up but don't show up you will still have to pay. (unless you have a good excuse).
  2. It's not possible to withdraw from the list after 3 'o clock on wednesdays.
  3. If you don't show up while being signed up several times in a row, you will be banned for a couple of matches.
  4. The price you pay for the pitches is just to cover the costs of booking. It's not our goal to have profits, but if there are, they will go to the IFL Madrid funds.
