    Football is a widely supported sport across the globe, and is even referred to as Soccer in different countries. Most young children will find themselves drawn to the game and long to give it a go.

    When it comes to playing football as a team, there is a range of positions which you can choose from. Depending on your skill set, you may find yourself siding more towards a certain role on the field. But to find out more about the position itself and the requirements to fit the post, we have put together this article discussing each role and all about them.

  2. A Quick Guide to Choosing New Football Boots

    One of the best parts of playing football is the fact that you hardly need any equipment to get a game started. At its most basic, all you need is the ball and a decently large place to play; everything after that just serves to add consistency and simplicity to the game. If you're not just playing pick-up games in the park on the weekends, though, you'll need to pick up a few more pieces of gear to ensure you can compete on the same level as your peers. The boots you wear are an essential component to competition, affording you the ability to grip the turf better, enabling quick plays and improved agility. At first, you might think that choosing boots for your football games is as simple as buying regular trainers or shoes you might wear during an average day. In reality, though, there are a lot of factors at play when you want to secure boots that will help improve your performance. From matching them to your playing surface to choosing a design that enables you to play comfortably,

  3. Try These Helpful Ideas When You Need a Christmas Gift for the Avid Football Player in Your Life

    7th December 2017.For many people, the Christmas season is among the most cherished times of the year. Not only is it the perfect time to gather together with your loved ones to celebrate the holiday, but of course, the gift giving is a fun part of the traditions, too!

For some, the shopping will be easy. Your young nephew gets the latest and greatest video games, and you might gift your mother a new set of kitchen knives ? but what about the sports lovers in your life? If you have a football fanatic in the family, it's hard to miss. Not only will they probably have sports clothing that announces their club allegiance, but they might make it down to the pitch multiple times a week for games with friends.

  6. Walking Football: An Excellent Sport for Senior Health and More

    13th March 2017.Is there a clearer expression of the human body's incredible abilities than watching young athletes in their prime compete for the top spots in their respective sports? When our bodies are young, many of us turn to sports to exercise, have fun, and connect with our peers. Why should sport remain the domain of the young solely, though? As we get older, many of the rigorous sporting tasks we tackled with ease in our youth have become more difficult. Without the competitive aspect and the drive to improve and be better, many people drift away from sports as they age. That might even lead to an abandonment of regular exercise altogether. It doesn't have to be that way, though, and indeed it shouldn't ? after all, exercise is important throughout our lifetimes. While age can slow us down, it shouldn't knock us out of the game entirely. That idea is the driving force between a game that's growing in popularity in many places:

  8. 6 Reasons To Encourage Girls to Play Football

    8th December 2016.Any parent knows that children are full of light, love, laughter, and a whole lot of one other thing, too: energy. When you see your daughter running around, playing outdoors and having a great time, it's natural to think about other possible outlets for her.
