The FA’s Just Play Programme is a key part of The FA's National Game Strategy with the key aim to support the recreational format of the game.
The ‘FA Mars Just Play!’ gives the casual footballer the opportunity to simply turn up to a venue and play football. The Just Play movement is recreational football at its best – it’s about turning up for an hour of exercise and a bit of fun. The programme has been designed for all types of footballers including 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 the 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 are run on a weekly basis over 32 week period and led by a Level 1 coach.
