Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If/Once I get in, is it possible to start playing football in the army?

    I've always wanted to do it and what not, but I've never had money to do it and neither have my parents so I can't really do it. But is it possible to play it in the army? And if so what's the training and match times like?
  2. About 90 mins per match I believe.

    Training is like a game but with jumpers for goal posts and some fat SNCO telling you what to do whilst letting everyone know that he would have played for United if it hadn't been for the shin splints
  3. Football is a womens game in the Army. Play rugby instead.
  4. Haha, alright then, not the most popular sport I take it ;)

    I used to play rugby when I was little, never liked it, just couldn't get into it properly.
  5. So you're not really from Wales after all then?
  6. Hah, Rugby just ain't the sport I enjoy, don't know why.. can't really get into it. Although I do watch the internationals.
