Five a Side Football on an Edinburgh Stag Weekend

For a fast paced afternoon activity on your Edinburgh stag weekend you should have a think about taking to the pitch for a spot of five-a-side football. Edinburgh has built up a reputation for a being one of the top cities in the United Kingdom to party in so it's no surprise to us that many of you guys want to spend that last weekend of freedom there. With great locals, top bars and first rate nightclubs it's no wonder why it keeps stags coming back time after time.

Why Edinburgh

Located in the South East of Scotland Edinburgh attracts over 1 million visitors each year which makes it the most visited city after London. No surprise really with so many festivals and event on throughout the year and fantastic scenery and nightlife, Edinburgh ticks all the boxes that you want on a weekend away. It has been thought of as one of the most picturesque cities in Europe and we know that you're not really interested in the sights, unless of course she's in heels and a short skirt! Edinburgh is a great city around the clock. Spend your days soaking up the sights and sounds of the city and the evenings soaking up the drinks. Edinburgh has a little something for everyone.

Why five-a-side football?

Footy with your mates is always going to be a laugh and five a side football is perfect for when you have a smaller group and you want something a bit more fast paced than a regular game. Because the pitch and goals are smaller, there's a lot more opportunity for everyone to get involved and run around, rather than being stuck out on the sidelines wondering if the ball's ever going to come to them. Venues are sometimes indoors which is perfect if the weather's not up to scratch. It's a great way to bring out the competitive streaks in you and your mates and get some good team bonding / screaming in before you head out on the night into Edinburgh.

Edinburgh nightlife

You won't be short of pubs to choose from on your stag weekend and fortunately for you they're not scattered far and wide so more time is spent on drinking rather than getting to the next boozer. South of Edinburgh Castle you've got some great pubs in the areas of the Grassmarket and the Lawnmarket. From Deacon Brodies Tavern,  The Jolly Judge to Frankenstein's Pub, expect an eclectic mix of pubs in this area to keep you and the guys entertained on your night out. For something a bit more trendy, head to the popular George Street where you'll find brilliant venues like the Lula Bar and Nightclub, and the Opal Lounge.
