Set Up A Walking Football Session

Find out more abolut the process

In Gloucestershire, we have supported upwards of 30 groups to have regular kickabouts each week, without the admin!

We are always on the lookout to support more people to regularly play the beautiful game in a simple and accessible format. 

Mars Just Play is an FA programme that encourages people to take part in recreational kickabouts to fit lifestyles that are not suited to traditional formats, and this incorporates all walking football sessions.

See below to find all the information required to set up your very own Mars Just Play Walking session, and all the benefits that come with it.
