I always wanted to play football, but I didn’t know it was possible for Trans people. I heard about inclusive groups, and I came all the way from Rotterdam to participate here. The whole week I am so excited to play football, and this gives me something to look forward to.

Never played football? No problem!

As an adult, we know how difficult it can be to learn a new sport, or just develop your skills. At FLINTA Football, our aim is to support all levels to play the beautiful game - bringing the fun along with the learning :)

The Beginner Training Sessions are recommended for absolute beginners to advanced-beginners. You will take part in coached training sessions in groups of 15 players or less. You can sign up per session - no obligation or commitment necessary!

Each training session will focus on technical development

(ie. ball control, passing, attacking), with the aim of building your confidence and football IQ to participate in playing games.

Registration for FLINTA Football is free! Once you register, you will be sent a welcome email with a link to join the dedicated Whatsapp group where you can sign up for sessions on a weekly basis.

Football has always been a transformative power in my life. My playing journey with ​football began as a 7 year old. Growing up, I never had any FLINTA-identifying ​coaches, and so I never saw myself being a coach. Now, I feel it’s even more ​important to be a role model and support FLINTA football development not just as ​players, but to become coaches and referees. My driving force is to make football ​accessible to the communities most marginalized, and to create spaces where ​those same FLINTA’s can go on and become role models for others.
