#FootballsStayingHome offers both physical and mental wellbeing advice when many are isolated in their own homes due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The FA understand that, at times like these, there is an everlasting belief that football can offer people hope, entertainment and togetherness while also acting as a vehicle to promote wellbeing.

That’s why they have launched the campaign across England’s digital channels. It brings together players of the past and present – as well as experts from the national football centre, St George’s Park – to produce content which engages the nation at this difficult time.

The campaign will be supported across all of The FA’s brands and channels, including FA Education, whose staff will be sharing daily tips to keep parents and children active.

The Boot Room will feature a range of insightful articles, guides and top tips from some of the most knowledgeable figures in the game. Plus, The FA will also be broadcasting classic Emirates FA Cup and Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches back-to-back across their social channels and the FA Player every Sunday afternoon.

You can get involved too with the whole football community – fans, players, parents, teams, and leagues – asked to get behind the campaign by creating their own content and using the #FootballsStayingHome hashtag on Twitter.
