Mars Just Play!

The Mars JustPlay programme is a national programme launched by The FA in partnership with Mars. It has an aim to increase adult participation (16+) by supporting affiliated football and increasing casual participation by playing at least once per week.

Now is the perfect opportunity to get your boots back on and join us at one of our Just Play kickabouts. The sessions are for all abilities and perfect for those that haven’t played in a while.

Just Play! kickabouts are great for when you want to play without committing to a weekly game, a complicated league or fancy team strips. It’s all about loose, sociable play with an FA qualified Just Play organiser at an excellent local facility, so any excuses about fitness or levels of experience should be left where they deserve to be: at the bottom of your kit bag!

The Nottinghamshire FA will deliver on the ‘Just Play’ across the County with specific focus on the City which includes the following areas:

  • Develop programmes to grow 11v11 open age male and female football 
  • Development programmes to grow small sided male and female football 
  • Manage and support the transition of youth players to open age football 
  • Identify gaps in football provision within the City
  • Provide more flexible formats of football
  • Intervention programmes 14+

"I used to play a lot of sport but wanted to start getting back into something. I found this team a couple of years ago and it's been amazing, the girls are a lot of fun and it's really nice to be playing football again!"

"I come here on a Thursday because I enjoy playing football, the girls here are so friendly, we're all about the same ability level and it's just great fun for a Thursday evening!"

"The sessions are great, it's brilliant having some coaching too for some guidance, you can see yourself improving every week. Anybody who likes football, the whole point is it's fun, you don't get told off if you do something wrong and it's a lovely atmosphere. It's great!
