Fun, free, safe football for your child
Fun Football is back! We are now open for registration, with hundreds of free places available in different locations across Northern Ireland. Each session has been designed to be as safe as possible, and all activity will be following the latest Irish Football Association guidelines.
Fun Football sessions are for five, six, seven and eight-year-olds. You can register for information on the centres and you will be notified once they are available by signing up for the McDonald’s Fun Football email newsletter. We also have free Fun Football Activity Books that you can order by clicking this link . Please note due to government restrictions numbers will be limited to a max of 24 places per Fun Football sessions.
What does the McDonald's Fun Football programme offer?
The McDonald’s Fun Football programme will deliver five million hours of fun across the UK, introducing children to coaching sessions and family events in local communities near you.
Building on the huge growth of grassroots football over the last 15 years, the next four years will see the introduction of a new participation-based programme for children.
Through this four-week beginner level coaching programme McDonald’s and the Irish FA Foundation will provide children with the opportunity to try football for the first time.
Check out the video above. Children can take part in all sorts of games and activities as well as football, and parents can get involved too.
Fun Football sessions are for five, six, seven and eight-year-olds. They are completely free and older age groups will be added at a later date. All children receive a fun sticker book and a football.
