We would love to see new members coming up to play in the leagues, which are open to all.
There is always a special welcome for our under six and under seven players many of whom are coming up to Corinthians for the first time. Our Under Six and under Seven League are undoubtedly an ideal starting point for any young budding “Ronaldo, Messi or Wayne Rooney “, the games are fun filled with the emphasis very much on enjoyment. So if you were born in 2007 / 2008, why not come along, we would love to see you in Corinthians.
