FA Mars Just Play

The FA and Mars, The FA's Adult Football Partner, have made it as easy as a ‘one-two’ to turn up and start playing the football that best suits you; whether it’s a good old-fashioned kickabout or the more competitive game, like 5 or 11-a-side.

The FA and Mars have created Just Play for everyone who wants to get out there and have an informal kick about. Regardless of your ability, experience or fitness #JustPlay football is your route into the beautiful game. It offers fun, friendly and flexible football at times and locations that suit you, the player!

For some people affiliated football is not an option, because of the lack of desire, the time commitment needed or simply that they don’t want to play competitive football. For these players, #JustPlay offers a viable alternative to allow them to engage with the game in an organised, but informal way – something that hasn't been on offer before.

Participants will choose what they play and the organisers will organise these games for them. Centres will provide the means for adults to get into or get back into football, by providing the facility and the organisation of the games. This will, for many adults, be the first step on their pathway to playing affiliated football.

The FA Mars Just Play initiative is now in its sixth year and more adults now than ever before are taking part in casual football at Just Play Centres across the UK. Over the past six years, the programme has offered over 1.4 million opportunities to play football through Just Play, and now the initiative is aiming to achieve one million attendances at FA Mars Just Play kickabouts nationwide by 2018.

Below is a number of turn up and play FA Mars #JustPlay sessions that are currently taking place in Hull and East Riding:
