Play the beautiful game in Greater Manchester.

Manchester is known for its rich footballing history and as we're passionate about the country's most popular sport, there is no shortage of different forms of football for you to get involved in.

We have over 2,200 teams playing football in a range of formats across Greater Manchester, creating  opportunities for all to take part in the beautiful game. 

From Mini-Soccer and SSE Wildcats for young children taking their first steps in the game, to Futsal for those looking to try something new and of course, everyone's favourite, the traditional eleven-a-side game.

Here at Manchester FA, we also work hard to support the local community to play in a fun, safe and inclusive environment across the county. 

However you choose to enjoy playing football, we're on hand to help you get into the game!
