About Us

Welcome to Match of the Dads. We are a group of fathers based in Norwich,  Norfolk, UK who meet most Monday evenings for a game of 5 a side football in our dedicated 'Match of the Dads' league.

It Is played at the F.D.C in Bowthorpe.

Starting in April 2017, 12 local Dads from Norwich got together to have a kick about and let off some steam.

We now have over 100 dads involved in a 10 team FA affiliated league, Playing 3 matches every Monday.

Due to all the success we have recently been awarded the Norfolk FA 2019 Grassroots Project of the Year.

So If you'd like to get involved don't hesitate to contact us to find out more.

Match of the Dads has earned its positive reputation because we go out of our way to provide truly exceptional experience both on and off the pitch.

Recently Match of the Dads featured in the EDP and EDP24 -

We are delighted to announce that Deliveroo are our primary shirt sponsor for 2019/20 season. 

Deliveroo - Official Takeaway Partner of Match of the Dads.

The aim of the group is to enable Dads to take a breather from time to time and recharge their fatherhood batteries, whilst also making new friends and partaking in a physical activity.


It's no secret how much life changes once you become a parent but we believe it's also important to remember yourself as an individual, particularly in light of the sharp increase in male mental health issues and tragic suicide rates.

As part of Match of the Dads, we raised money - a charity focused on male mental health and male suicide prevention.

We have already raised 100s of pounds for Calmzone and we hope to raise more and more each year.

As well as local press we have had some national press from the BBC.
