McDonald's Fun Football Centres

The McDonald’s Fun Football programme will deliver 5 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 past decade and a half, 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 5, 6, 7 and 8 year olds with older age groups to be added at a later date and are also completely free.  All children will receive a fun sticker book and a football.
