Get involved with football

Find out how you can get involved with football at UWE Bristol.

The MOVE programme offers you the opportunity to play football through activity sessions and intramural leagues. These sessions allow you to play in a friendly atmosphere, and are open to all levels of ability.

Football at the Centre for Sport on Frenchay Campus.

Mars Just Play

'Just Play' kickabouts are great for when you want to play without committing to a weekly game, a complicated league or fancy team strips. It’s all about loose, casual play.

When: This activity starts in the autumn term of the 2020/21 academic year. The exact date will be available closer to the time. Sessions will run on Fridays at 16:30 and Saturdays at 17:30.

Where: The games will take place at the Centre for Sport astro pitch. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the number of spaces and length of sessions will be restricted. 

League details

  • Mars Just Play sessions are really popular, so please ensure you book on early to avoid disappointment. Please arrive on time otherwise you may be refused entry. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the spaces available in each session is reduced. 
  • Free with MOVE membership or £5 per session. These sessions are drop-in, but places will be limited so you will need to register for sessions via the app or online.
