FC Groningen OldStars celebrate the 10th anniversary

The FC Groningen OldStars team, to celebrate the 10th anniversary that happened at the beginning of February, was allowed to walk around the stands during halftime of the home game with TOP Oss.

FC Groningen started with the Oldstars in February 2014, and since then the group of elderly athletes has been true ambassadors of Walking Football. Through many demonstration training sessions, they have warmed the Northern Netherlands to Walking Football.

After ten years, Walking Football is still one of the successful programs of the FC Groningen Foundation in Society, fitting perfectly into the vision of More & Better Exercise, allowing elderly to not only maintain fitness, but also ensures fun and social contacts.

The video of the OldStars’s lap of honor can be found on the club’s Twitter account and more information on some members of the team can be found here.

Follow also the Walking Football League led by EFDN and co-founded by the European Union through Erasmus Sport+. Find more information on it and how to get involved on the website.
