Fulham Legends

Walking football, it’s exactly what it what it sounds like: a standard game of football where players walk instead of run.

Fulham FC Foundation launched Fulham Legends Walking Football on 17th August in partnership with the European Football Development Network. Designed to get people aged 50+ moving more, participants enjoy weekly sessions led by qualified FFCF coaches and an opportunity to socialise with other members of their community. If that’s not enough, participants regularly see health benefits such as reduced heart rate and blood pressure, as well as weight loss and better mobility!

Fulham Legends take part in local tournaments and events, and the programme forms part of the Foundation’s wider efforts to increase the health and wellbeing of those in their communities.
