Set in London, 5-A-SIDE is a comedy drama, football-based "soap" series with an all star cast, about a group of guys who get together once a week to play 5-a-side.

Following their lives on and off the pitch, the show's "driven winners" and relationship based themes make it must-see, must-share quality entertainment, set against the edge-of-your-seat energy and inspirational appeal of competitive football - on a grassroots scale that's accessible to all.

Previously published as five separate YouTube shorts, this 2-part series is a compendium of all five episodes.
