Established in spring 2017, Football for Fathers is a community based club for football-loving Dads based in-and-around the Hertfordshire towns of Hitchin and Letchworth.
Football for Fathers is a subscription based club, and we run football sessions on a weekly basis for Dads of all abilities, aged 30 and above, as well as tournaments and social events. We also run a session dedicated to Womens' Football. Through activities, sponsorship and our players' generous donations we also support local good causes and charities.
In under four years Football for Fathers has evolved from seven mates playing 'jumpers for goalposts' in the park to 400+ signed-up players playing competitive football together across nine weekly sessions.
Our founding principles of inclusivity, wellbeing, enjoyment, community spirited and health and safety ensure our busy Hertfordshire Dads (and now Mums!) all enjoy the benefits of regular football and team spirit, with a few pints thrown in for good measure...

Football for Fathers now run seven weekly sessions in Hitchin, including a 'Football for Women' session on Thursdays. Plus we run a Monday and Wednesday session in nearby Letchworth on Herts FA's beautiful 3G pitch at the County Ground.

It's been a tough - however long, for everyone. The whole team at Football for Fathers hopes all our players and their families in and around Hitchin, Letchworth and beyond have stayed safe and are well.
With the lockdown now over, football is back and better than ever. Our team have had to build in a number of adjustments to allow for Covid-19 track and trace, and to ensure our sessions can run safely, but the most important thing is...WE'RE BACK! From March 29th our 2021 sessions are open and we're looking for new players.
There has never been a more appropriate time for a weekly hour of fresh-air, football, friends and good fun to help all our combined worries go away. Come and join us!
