Theo Walcott, Scott Sinclair, Jack Cork, Connor Wickham and Marc Albrighton
are helping celebrate the success of The FA Mars Just Play programme by announcing a week-long
series of free Just Play kickabouts across the country during October.
Over 120 Just Play centres
will open their doors to adult footballers of all ages and abilities for one week starting 8 th October.
More than 150 free sessions will take place around England during the Just Play Free for One Week
Walcott, Sinclair, Cork, Wickham and Albrighton will all lead an exclusive Just Play kickabout to
celebrate the launch of Just Play Free for One Week. The footballers, who have all represented
England at Under 21 level, will display their skills and allow a select group of local participants to join
them in a fun, casual Just Play kickabout in their area.
The FA and Mars launched the Just Play programme last June as they attempted to arrest the decline
in adult football by providing facilities, organisers and an online tool that allows players to take
part in casual football at a time that suits them.
Theo Walcott, MARS ambassador for The FA Mars Just Play programme, said:
“Just Play is a great way to get back into football and hopefully the Just Play Free for One Week
initiative will show people how easy and fun it is to come along and take part in a kickabout”
With weekly sessions running in over 150 Just Play Centres across the country, adults can go onto the Just Play website (www.TheFA.com/justplay), enter their postcode, and book themselves onto a kickabout nearby.
