The festival, which runs from 18-20 September, sees our squad of 10 take on representative sides from some of Europe’s top clubs, including Benfica and PSV Eindhoven, with the aim of being crowned continental champions.

Since July 2016 the Foundation has delivered two walking football sessions a week through the Legends Walking Football project, which encourages and motivates people over the age of 50 to take part in physical activity. The programme has continued to grow in popularity with over 80 participants to date.

The Foundation also delivers walking sport taster sessions in hockey, netball and cricket at Southbury Leisure Centre and the LLDD Centre at Barnet and Southgate College.
