Your game, your way... start your football journey

Play the game your way


As a player, there are so many opportunities for male and female to get involved in our national game here on the Isle of Man. 

Football and the Isle of Man have a long and proud history together so, as you would expect from an Island that is so passionate about the game, there are no shortage of different forms of football for you to get involved in. 

From the Small-Sided game, such as Mini-Soccer for young children taking their first steps in the game, to Futsal and of course the hugely popular and more traditional eleven-a-side game

However you choose to enjoy playing football, More than 4,000 people play and enjoy football around Island every week. There are more than 350 teams that make up the membership of the Isle of Man FA, all involved in regular league football.

In addition to the traditional formats of football, within this section you can find information on our Recreational Football Programme, which includes our Just Play and Walking Football sessions.

As a player, there are many opportunities for you to play football on the Island, whatever your age, gender, ability, race, culture or background.

It’s never too late to start playing football.
