McDonald’s Free Fun Football is back in Cambridge
Local McDonald’s franchisee Ahmet Mustafa is providing free, safe, Fun Football sessions for local children from Cambridge.
Taking place at Sawston Sports Centre in Sawston, the initiative gets children between the ages of five and 11 active and playing football again.
In partnership with all four Football Associations across the UK, McDonald’s and franchisees – including Ahmet Mustafa – are providing hundreds of free sessions, all delivered by a team of fully-qualified coaches in more than 600 locations across the UK.
In Cambridge, three Fun Football sessions have already taken place but there are still spaces available at this weekend’s session on Saturday (May 8) from 11.30am to 12.30pm. All sessions are held in a safe environment. They all follow the latest government protocols and are designed with our UKFA partners and their latest grassroots guidance.
Ahmet Mustafa said: “I am thrilled that we can help get children back playing football again together after such a long period of isolation. I believe that you only get out of a community what you put in, which is why I enjoy supporting local young people. It’s been so nice to see the parks filled again with kids playing football.”
He added: “I am delighted to be able to contribute to the Fun Football scheme and work with the FA alongside other franchisees, and the business, to give even more children the chance to hone their skills – no matter their ability.”
The Cambridge McDonald’s Fun Football sessions are part of McDonald’s programme that aims to provide five million hours of free Fun Football coaching to children in the UK by 2022.
McDonald’s also has a suite of football skills, tricks and drills to try at home. Simply go to mcdonalds.co.uk/funfootball for downloadable packs and video drills from Fun Football ambassadors Jack Rutter, Casey Stoney and Martin Keown.
