The benefits of football

Not only is football a great game to watch, but you'll also benefit from training and playing regularly. From kids to adults, here are some reasons why having a kickabout will help your score a health hattrick:  

  • Improves your heart health and lowers blood pressure - as long as you keep moving throughout the game, you'll be getting your blood pumping and contributing to your overall heart health
  • Build strength, speed and stamina - remember, you're using power and strength to get the ball in the back of the net, tackling an opponent or to your teammate
  • Training your brain - what's your next move? How can you get the ball forward? All these tactics need to be worked out
  • Reducing body fat - as football is a cardio exercise, you'll be using up calories and burning fat
  • Increase muscle mass and body strength - football involves running and sprinting, which helps build muscle and power in your legs
