The campaign will be supported across all of The FA's brands and channels including FA Education, whose staff will be sharing daily tips to keep you and your kids active, while The Boot Room will feature a range of insightful articles, guides and top tips from some of the most knowledgeable figures in the game.
If all that wasn’t enough, The FA will also be broadcasting classic Emirates FA Cup and Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches back-to-back across their social channels and The FA Player every Sunday afternoon.
We need you to get involved, too. We’re asking the whole football community – fans, players, parents, teams, leagues and County FAs – to get behind the campaign by creating their own content and using #FootballsStayingHome. The best posts will feature in an online hub at TheFA.com/FootballsStayingHome.
