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

Walking Football

It's never too late to get back into football

Think it's time to hang up your boots? Think again!

Walking football is a slower paced version of the beautiful game introduced to encourage older adults to continue playing football.

The game comprises of the same rules as standard football except that players are not allowed to run. This makes the game much more focused on the technical elements of the game such as accurate passing and good tactics and less reliant on physical elements such as speed and stamina. These small changes make it  slower paced and accessible to all regardless of age, health and ability.

This format of football is aimed at keeping players aged 50+ involved in the game for a longer time.
