  • The football cages consist of 20 individual panels. Of these, 17 are plain panels, 2 are goal panels and 1 is a door panel.
  • We recommend that the football cage is erected by two people. It generally takes around 15 minutes to erect and 15 minutes to take down.

  • The football cage can be transported in any suitable van. If you don't have a van we recommend the Blueline Trailers 10’x5’x6’ Box Trailer. We don’t supply these trailers ourselves but Blueline will be happy to help you. We also recommend if you intend to use a trailer that you purchase one of our cradles which can be installed into any suitably sized trailer, you can use either a box trailer or an open trailer.

  • Cage Football Rules
    • Each game consists of two teams each with 2 players.
    • A goal is only scored when the ball touches the back wall of the goal box.
    • A player must be in their opponents' half to score.
    • After a goal is scored the defending team must start with the ball in their own half and the scoring team must return to their own half. (The team in possession of the ball does not have to wait for their opponents to be ready before beginning the game again).
    • No goal keeping allowed.
    • Each game lasts 2 minutes. The winner is the team that scores the most goals in those 2 minutes.
    • If the score is even then 30 seconds of ‘golden goal’ will be played.
    • If the score is still even both teams are out.
    • If at any point in the game a player performs a ‘nutmeg’ then that player's team automatically wins, no matter what the time or the score line. (A nutmeg is only completed successfully when the ball is placed between an opponent's legs and collected on the other side by the same player before the ball touches any other player or wall).
    • Rules on tackles are the same as normal football games.
    • No slide tackles.
    • No two-footed tackles.
    • No elbowing or shoulder barging.
    • No striking opponents.
    • No holding onto the cage or opponents to protect the ball.
    • Fouls will result in the clock being stopped and opponents returning to their own halves with the fouled player taking possession.
    • Referee's decisions are final and will not be discussed!
  • The cages are so simple to erect that very little training is required. We provide a setup manual detailing how to erect one, which includes all the information required. The rules of the game are listed above.
