Frequently Asked Questions

THE PITCHES

Are the pitches floodlit?

Yes all our pitches are fully floodlit so you can play long into the evening.

When are they open?

Our fields are available from approximately 8am until 10pm during the week and from 6am until 9pm at weekends. Playground is opened from 8am – 6pm on weekdays and from 8am – 6pm on weekends.

How do bookings work?
KEERAPA ACTIVE will always have a manager on duty when you play, so there is someone to direct you to your pitch and help you out where needed. Bookings are essential as the pitches are locked when not in use, during off-peak periods the manager is only present when there are bookings.

What footwear can I wear?

Our facility uses a needle-punched artificial grass with sand infill so you can wear any footwear excluding blades and studs.

Am I insured?

KEERAPA ACTIVE insures all registered players that take part in our KEERAPA ACTIVE's 5-a-side Leagues and Football Coaching Programs. All other users of the facilities must take out their own insurance policies if they wish to be insured in case of injury. Those players taking part in coaching programs or competitions not organised by KEERAPA ACTIVE must ensure that the coach or association that they play with has adequate insurances in place. For more information see our Football Insurance page.

5-A-SIDE LEAGUES

What is 5-a-side?

5-a-side can refer to any sports game that is played with 5 players on each side. The 5-a-side soccer that KEERAPA ACTIVE play allows for play off the walls to create a fast flowing game with fewer stoppages. This allows for more game time than Futsal or other variations of soccer.

Can I choose what night I play?

Yes you can choose which night to play. Where we have enough teams, we grade the divisions on a particular night.

How long are the seasons?

During a season you will play each opposing team twice then the top four will play finals in the final week. The length of the season depends upon the number of teams in the league. If there are 8 teams then you will play 14 games and then an extra week if you make the finals.

How much is registration?
GHC0! KEERAPA ACTIVE do not charge registration fees for our Leagues. There is a GHC300 deposit which pays for your first game and the last games of your season.

Team fees are GHC150 per team per game, so for an eight team senior competition you will play 14 games so GHC2,100. If you pay upfront for the season then you will receive your first game free. There are no match fees charged for finals matches.

Can I pay weekly?

Teams wishing to pay weekly can do so as a valid VISA/Mastercard, Mobile money transfer or slydepay is required to secure your place in the competition unless paying upfront. However, teams would forfeit the GHC 300 for cancellations and no-show. The deposit of GHC300 is charged when the competition is confirmed and will be used toward your match fees. If a team paying weekly pulls out of the competition then the credit card will be charged the balance for games left to play unless a replacement team is found.
