"A great project run by talented people. It's groups like this that deserve more attention"

What is MATES FC ?

MATES FC is a community football club run by a community, for a community.

Our goal is not about being the best team in a league or getting the right players, our goal is to get people back into football and use the beautiful game as a weapon to fight Depression, Anxiety and any other mental health issue that we can.

Together, we CAN and WILL do all that we can to get you back in the game and get those golden days and skills and community you were proud of back in your life.
