Welcome to the website for walking football in the Eastern Algarve region of southern Portugal.
Walking football is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game aimed at the “more mature” person (with no upper age limit)
Walking football was conceived in 2011 by the Chesterfield FC Community Trust, and is now very popular throughout the whole of Europe. It was introduced to the Algarve over 6 years ago, and there are now various teams and weekly sessions held along the whole width of the Algarve, with the occasional friendly tournament involving teams from both the Algarve and abroad.
Walking football is a minimal-contact sport, and anything other than brisk walking is penalised. This makes it ideal for the “older” generation, with little risk of injury.
Anyone is welcome to any of the sessions we run; all the information you will need is on the website.
In addition, if you would like to bring your team over to the sunny Algarve for an informal get together, including a few matches, a warm welcome, and a beer or two, please contact us. Please note we only have pitch availability during the week for get togethers, so weekends should be avoided.
We also have a “normal” running football team that is available for friendly matches; this can be combined with walking football matches during your visit if required. Visit our sister site at https://eastalgarvefc.com/ for more information on this.
We thank our partners for their continued support of walking football here in the Eastern Algarve
