Walking Football

a slower version of the beautiful game

These boots are made for walking!

Walking Football is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game. It is aimed at getting players back involved in the sport or those that want to continue but at a slower pace.

Due to it's growing popularity with people aged over 50's, sessions are aimed at (although not limited to) this age group, with the sport also becoming popular with players coming back from injury and those with a lack of mobility.

There are lots of walking football sessions held across Norfolk so why not dust off your boots and get back on that pitch!

Walking football laws of the game

The FA have released an updated version of the Walking Football Laws of the Game.

The key changes are as follows:

  • A goal may not be scored directly from the kick off
  • When the ball rises above the designated height restriction resulting from a save or block performed by a goalkeeper the goalkeeper gains possession of the ball and must restart play with a goal clearance
  • A height restriction must apply, which cannot be less than the height of the crossbar and not greater than two metres
  • The game will be played with all free kicks being indirect free kicks
  • A player being sent off will result in a permanent reduction in the number of players on the team
  • The referee will award an indirect free kick against any player who is not walking regardless of whether or not they are in possession or if they are within playing distance of the ball or not

The full set of revised laws are below:
