McDonald's Fun Football

McDonald's Fun Football

The club are delighted to be partnering up with McDonald’s and the Scottish FA to provide affordable football for 100’s of youngsters in the local community. This programme is delivered in two ways:

At the Match At the Club
At the Match sessions are delivered right here at Tynecastle Park, totally free of charge.

Sessions include tournaments, races, fun challenges, free play and a variety of engaging small-sided games. These sessions take place 2-3pm on Friday’s.
At the Club sessions are delivered in partnership with Active Schools Edinburgh in 3 local Primary Schools.

These games based sessions are part of the extra-curricular timetable at Balgreen, Dalry and Stenhouse Primary Schools.

Tynecastle at the Match Centre

Our Tynecastle at the Match Centre, supported by the Scottish FA and McDonald’s, is a session for 5-12 year olds on Friday afternoons – and it’s completely FREE!

The centre offers youngsters the opportunity to participate in games–based activity and matches from 2:00 - 3:00pm on the Community Pitch at Tynecastle Park and Tynecastle High School (weather dependant).

A key feature of the session is to encourage the players themselves to lead and inspire the type of games they want to play and help them achieve greater ownership of the activities – very much like street football of the past.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in free-play as well as small-sided tournaments, and weekly challenges (with some great prizes on offer!).                            

All of this combined, we hope to create a culture of football in the local area that will see more kids out playing football, and contributing towards an active, healthy lifestyle.

Book your youngsters place here.
