Football is one of those games that you can play anywhere: at home, in the garden or in the park and playground. Now for kids who don’t play, getting into the game and gaining confidence is easier than ever with FREE Fun Football sessions from McDonald’s and the Football Association. The sessions are about getting children active, having fun, making new friends and giving football a go, regardless of age, gender or physical ability.
Share your child’s football experience to win prizes
At our #McDonaldsFunFootball Twitter chat, we’re talking about the benefits of football and about the sessions your child can take part in!
We want to hear about your family and football – does your child play? What do you see as the benefits to playing? What are the reasons your child has hung back from getting involved with school or local teams? Do you think watching professional football prompts kids to play themselves?
The chat is sponsored by McDonald’s UK, which is launching 600 Fun Football Sessions designed to introduce children aged 5-11 to football for the first time. More than 12,000 spaces are available for children regardless of gender or ability to try football in a fun, inclusive environment. The sessions will feature introductory drills from FA-qualified coaches, helping them develop their all-around skills.
The Fun Football sessions are part of the new four-year deal between McDonald’s and the Football Association, which together with Northern Irish, Welsh and Scottish FAs, will see the restaurant company provide over 5 million hours of football to 5-11 year olds by 2022.
