5 a side team generator

Use the ALL IN app to generate random teams for any sport or activity that involves opposing sides.

All across the world people of all ages turn out every week to kick, hit or throw a ball whether for professional or personal reasons.  We work with a number of sports teams (5 a side, 7 a side, or even 11 a side when they can find the numbers) that often have the same need:  How do you easily pick teams and make sure it’s fair?  This is where ALL IN’s random team generator comes in

You can quickly organise teams or generate random groups here:

This version allows you to use our team generator by typing in your own team mates’ names and randomly sorting them into teams.  You can also try the full ALL IN app here

Here’s the difference between the demo version and the full app for organising your 5 a side, 7 a side or however many a side you need:

  • Add your own team mates’ names
  • Choose your own team names and shirt colours
  • Randomly allocate team members to up to 8 different teams
  • Manually move people between teams
  • Share your teams over your preferred social media

Everything from the Lite version plus:

  • Save your teams
  • Invite your friends to events and allow them to confirm if they’re coming
  • Randomly generate teams from those that can make it
  • Waiting list functionality for events with limited places and auto promotion from the list as people drop out
  • Add fees and allow ALL IN to chase outstanding payments
  • Pay directly through the app (UK & parts of Europe)

And it’s all completely free to use.  Please just let us know how you get on and if there are any more features you would like.

Read on below to see how ALL IN’s team generator works… 

Random football team generator

Create random teams

Let’s assume you’ve already got your team created and people signed up to play (If not, see this article on how to create teams first), you can use our 5 a side team generator to quickly create random teams with an unlimited number of players per team.

Simply enter the number of teams you want within your event team list and click “Team up”.

Random Group Generator

If you’re not happy with the first teams generated then just hit the button again until things look about right.

Manual fine tuning

Once you’ve got your teams set up to a level you’re happy with you may want to make some minor adjustments.  You can quickly swap players from one team or another by dragging their name using the three dots on the right.

Team names

Then, you may want to customise your team names or shirt colours.  Just click on the edit pencil next to each team name and then update your teams accordingly.

Customise groups


Once you’ve got your team updated, save the changes.  Any member on the app can then go and view the teams you’ve created.  If you want to share your generated 5 a side teams outside of the app though, ALL IN will let you do that too through the share button in the top right hand corner.

Share groups

Alternatively, if you’d like to use a random team generator in Excel or group generator in Google Sheets, just give ALL IN’s Excel random team generator a try.
