We all love playing football (soccer) with our friends. However, it can be quite difficult to assemble a team, let alone two, of eleven players. Therefore, a great alternative is five-on-five football. In this article, you’ll find out about the top five-on-five football courts in Bogotá so that you can play this beautiful game with your closest friends.
Playing football with our friends is, without a doubt, one of the most fun activities we could possibly engage in. There is something magical about getting together on a Sunday morning with 10 of your closest friends to kick the ball and blow off some steam. In addition to being extremely fun, playing football has, of course, the added benefit of being a healthy activity, as it serves as a fun way to do cardio and work out. So instead of going for a run this weekend, give your friends a call and get together at one of the following courts for a fun game of friendly football in Bogotá.
1. Spot 5
Located near Calle 140 and Carrera 12, Spot 5 is a multi-level building with a bunch of synthetic grass courts. All of the courts are designed for 10 people (5 on each team). A fun detail of this place is that the courts are named after famous stadiums, which adds a little fun to the whole experience; you know, playing at Santiago Bernabeu or La Bombonera could really make you feel like a superstar. Prices range between $80,000 and $200,000 COP per hour (between $26 and 65 USD, approximately), depending on the hour and the day of the week. Spot 5 has a parking lot, so you can park your car there. This is one of my favorite places to go with my friends, and I highly recommend it if you want to do something fun, different, and active with your friends.
2. La 10 Indoor Soccer
Unlike Spot 5, La 10 Indoor Soccer only has one court, but other than that, the place is quite similar to the previous one. It is located at Calle 108 and Carrera 17, and the distinctive factor of this site is that the second floor has a bunch of sofas for spectators. So if you want to make your match a high-stakes event with cheering fans, then this place is for you. Prices range from $80,000 to $190,000 COP (between $26 and $65 USD approximately) and are also dependent on the time of day and the day of the week. It has a couple of parking spots outside on the street, but because it’s only one court, you’ll most likely always find a parking spot.
3. Campin 5
A little bit further southwest in the city like the other two courts, Campín 5 is located at Carrera 28 and Calle 63, walking distance from the actual football stadium of Bogotá, Nemesio Camacho el Campín. So if there is a game going on, you could have a quick match with your friends and then walk across the street to watch some football from the Colombian league. Also, next door to El Campin 5, there’s a huge bowling place, so you could easily plan a whole day of activities within two blocks of the Campin 5 court. The courts are designed for either 5, 7, or 8 people per team, so you could also assemble a larger group to play.
Overall, playing five-on-five football is a great way to do something different, have some quality time with those closest to you while working out, and have a great time while doing so. Wherever you are in town, there will most likely be a court nearby, as playing football is something that we Colombians love to do. So call your friends, get together at one of the top 3 five-on-five football courts in Bogotá, and let us know what your experience was in the comments below.
