Blackpool Football Therapy FC

Blackpool Football Therapy FC

Blackpool Football Therapy FC was set up during lockdown in 2021.

The club aims to encourage Men around Blackpool to improve their physical and mental wellbeing through taking part in regular sessions of 9-a-side and 11-a-side football.

We also offer the added bonus of occasional get-togethers in bars.

We welcome anybody who is not actively involved in playing competitive football elsewhere.

Our 80+ members include all shapes and sizes, levels of ability and levels of fitness.

Members become part of a brotherhood, a support network, and a bunch of great pals.

Nine-a-Side Football Sessions

The Club’s 9-a-side football sessions are held on top-quality 3G pitches and are incredibly well organised (even if we do say so ourselves!).

9-a-side sessions are published on Social Media with a strict limit of 18 per game. First-come, first-served from those invited!

Sessions are £5 each, paid in advance.

Team Captains and line-ups are selected in advance to ensure an even and challenging game, and you will turn up in either a Red or a Blue top.

Sessions are competitive as most lads treat this as their weekly Cup Final. There is plenty of good-natured banter (some wittier than others), and everyone heads off to the bar afterwards for a well-earned libation of choice.
