Oxfordshire FA is delighted to be offering the opportunity for Walking Football teams across the county to compete in the first-ever Oxfordshire FA Walking Football Cup.
The one-day competition, sponsored by Age UK Oxfordshire, will take place at The Oxford Academy in Littlemore on Sunday 28 April 2019.
This competition follows on from the success and increased turn-out at the Oxfordshire Walking Football Festivals, which took place throughout 2018 and delivered in partnership with Better Leisure.
Oxfordshire FA would like to welcome ALL Walking Football teams across the county – or any groups that would like to create a team – to enter.
Michael Thurlow, Football Development Manager at Oxfordshire FA, said: “We are delighted to provide this opportunity to teams in Oxfordshire to compete for the new Walking Football Cup.
“Walking Football has seen a huge growth in Oxfordshire and this will provide further opportunities for individuals to participate more competitively.”
Walking Football, as the name suggests, is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game which is aimed specifically at players aged 50 and over.
