The winger who has not received the pass is allowed to run into the box and support the attacking team to score from the other winger’s cross.

The wingers game shows the advantage of having width in your team’s play. The game is played for two halves with each team being given the wingers for one half and benefiting from being able to pass wide and get crosses into the opponent’s box.

Set up

  • Pitch 40 yards by 30 yards including two 5-yard side channels

What you get your players to do

Two wingers go into the wide channels inside the opponent’s half.
