Fancy a kickabout but nowhere to go? Want to learn the latest tricks? Check out our Fairplay football sessions, there could be one near you, and if there isn’t let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
Fairplay provides qualified coaching staff in sites across Lincolnshire to work with young people in the area. The project is delivered in a variety of different ways including tournaments, coaching sessions, and drop in sessions.
There is also the chance to complete accredited courses that will help young people interested in coaching.
The Fairplay project uses football sessions to help build safer, stronger communities. Young people are given the opportunity to engage in local football sessions deterring them from anti-social behavior.
To date the Fairplay project has been a huge success, contributing to reduction in anti-social behaviour and crime within several local communities.
For information on your nearest Fairplay Football session, check out the Positive Futures page.
What happens if we don’t have Fairplay football in your area?
If you’re interested in getting Fairplay at a site near you just drop us an email to PositiveFutures@lincolnshire.gov.uk We can then arrange a meeting to see if Fairplay Football can be set up near you.
Fairplay Festival 2014
While the nation is building up to a summer of football, young people in Lincolnshire will be enjoying their own unique football event this Easter; the annual “Fairplay Festival”.
This year’s event will bring the warmth of Brazil to Carres Grammar school in Sleaford on Wednesday the 9th of April 2014. Over 250 young people from communities around Lincolnshire will come together to take part in the community football tournament.
They will get the chance to taste a slice of Brazilian culture with a Samba band, Futsal & Capoeira workshop and a chance to meet the 2014 world cup mascot, Fuleco among other activities available on the day.
Fairplay uses the power of football to engage young people in positive activities within their communities.This festival supports the fantastic work that is taking place locally and aims to inspire young people from some of our most vulnerable communities using football, music and media.
The 2014 Fairplay Festival is led by Lincolnshire County Council in partnership with StreetGames, Lincolnshire FA, Carres Grammar School and other local partners
We still have some free spaces available for youth & community projects to bring a team on the day. For further information on this project please contact:

Leading up to the Fairplay Festival on the 9th of April we will be running a weekly competition for young people aged 11-19. Every Friday starting the 28th of Feb 2014 until 4th April 2014 a world cup themed question will appear in an attachment beolw.
The answer to Week One’s question was 195 players from the Premier League will be at this summer’s World Cup. There were no correct answers received so the prize has rolled onto to Week Two.
