McDonald's Fun Football Centres

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. 

All 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 will receive a fun sticker book and a football.
