COLCHESTER United New Player of the Year, Noah Chilvers, will be the star attraction at a McDonald’s Fun Football session tomorrow.
The talented midfielder, who had a superb breakthrough year for the U last season, will be present at Sunday’s event at Great Dunmow, saluting all the budding players who take part.
The session takes place between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.
McDonald’s franchisee Ahmet Mustafa is once again giving away 120 hours of free and safe fun football sessions for the local children of Great Dunmow this month.
The fun sessions take place at 1Life in Great Dunmow Leisure Center, allowing children aged five to 11 to get active and play soccer again.
Getting kids active after a long year of lockdown restrictions is key to keeping them mentally and physically healthy.
Whether they are just starting out or wanting to start developing their skills again, every child can show up, participate and have fun.
In partnership with the four UK football associations, McDonald’s and its franchisees, including Ahmet Mustafa, offer hundreds of free sessions, all delivered by a team of fully qualified coaches at over 600 locations across the UK in 2021.
After four successful sessions in April, McDonald’s is offering four more sessions at Great Dunmow for parents / guardians to register their children, meaning 120 under-11s will have the opportunity to learn from the best coaches in the FA.
All sessions take place in a safe environment. They follow all the latest government protocols and are designed with our UKFA partners and their latest local guidelines.
McDonald’s franchisee Ahmet Mustafa said: “After some great sessions earlier this year, it’s fantastic that we can once again help the kids play football together after such an uncertain time.
“It is so important that children take this opportunity to stay active, which will benefit both their physical and mental health. So it is truly an honor to participate in this program and to work with AF alongside them. ‘other franchisees and the company, to give even more children the chance to hone their skills, whatever their abilities.
McDonald’s Fun Football Sessions are part of the McDonald’s program which aims to provide five million hours of free Fun Football coaching to children across the UK by 2022.
A new TV commercial has just been launched to promote the sessions which shows how much fun children can have while playing soccer. To watch it, visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9m_DLmi3Oo
In 2021 alone, McDonald’s will offer more than one million hours of free Fun Football sessions, as it doubles the number of sessions it hosts this summer to get more kids active again.
In addition to tomorrow’s session, they will also be another event on June 27 between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. at the same location.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the above dates. McDonald’s also offers a series of soccer skills, tips and drills that you can try out at home.
