WHAT IS FOOTBALL?
Millions of people across the globe live and breathe it, playing it with their friends and watching their heroes at a local stadium or on TV. In the UK, 5million people pull on their boots every week. All you really need to play ‘The Beautiful Game’ is a football and some space – then you can arrange a kick about with friends.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Whatever your age, ability or fitness level, there is a type of football suitable for you. Football helps to increase aerobic capacity and cardiovascular health; lowers body fat and improves muscle tone; builds strength, flexibility and endurance, increases muscle and bone strength; and is a great fun way to get fit with your mates.
