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.

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 free activity book. 

All locations, dates and times and the Regional Grassroots Development Officers are listed below. Please note: each programme is limited to a maximum of 24 places
