Welcome to Match of the Dads. We are an FA affiliated 5 a side football league for dads in Norwich, playing at the FDC in Bowthorpe.
12 dads on a monday night having a kick about, we have brought together over 100 dads to play football every week, but also helping each other with everything dad related and beyond.
This includes mental health, we work closely with Campaign Against Living Miserably to help rasie money to enable CALM to be give dads and others support who need it.
This has lead us to winning Grassroots project of the year 2019 from the Norfolk FA.
Below is a couple of links to local and national press coverage from the EDP and BBC.
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.
