FA Mars 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!

FAQs

The kickabouts will be taking place at Just Play Centres, sports centres, football pitches, five-a-side centres, community centres, colleges or universities near you.

Times will vary from one centre to another and across the country. Use the search area below to find a centre near you. Although you'll find that kickabouts tend to take place on the same day and same time each week you don't have to commit to a weekly game. Keeping it casual is what Just Play is all about.

They're for everyone 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.
