Just Play

Just Play

Recreational Football at its best.

The FA Just Play is a key part of The FA's National Game Strategy, aiming to support the growth of the game.

The FA Mars Just Play! gives the casual footballer a chance to just turn up to a venue and play football. The Just Play kickabout is recreational football at its best – it’s about turning up for an hour of exercise and a bit of fun. It’s football for those who can’t or don’t want to commit to an eight-month long season of matches and training.

Frankly, it’s jumpers for goalposts, but we provide the balls, pitch and teams.

FA Mars Just Play! is purely for adults, for men, for women, for those who think they’re talented and for those who think they aren’t. It’s also for those with a disability or for 16–25s or women-only or even veterans; there’s a kickabout designed specifically for you, whatever your age or ability.

There are Just Play kickabouts up and down the country, with 400 centres running since the programme launched in 2011. Sessions or ‘kickabouts’ are run on a weekly basis over 32 weeks of the year by a Level 1 coach.

Don’t leave your love of football back in the day. Contact your local organiser or use the search box to locate your nearest kickabout, turn up and Just Play!

They're for everyone aged 16+ who, for one reason or another has stopped playing or has ever wanted to play football. So if it's a good old-fashioned kickabout you're looking for, the people at Mars and The FA have made it as easy a 'one-two' to turn up and start playing the way that suits you.
