Walking football is a popular, and growing, format of the game

Walking Football


Play the game you love for longer.

If you’ve got the game in you, walking football sets you free. Walking football is the perfect fit for everyone who wants to play football for longer, make new friends, get out of the house and stay active.

With no running, jogging or heading – and tackling with reduced physical contact – walking football is a fun and safe way for players to enjoy football and socialise together. 

There are a variety of ways to play from Club football, Leagues and tournaments to informal opportunities through to Just Play. Where there’s a will, there’s always another way to play.

So if you want to play football regularly, exercise, meet new people and be part of a football community, then use the Find Football tool to find your nearest walking football session.
