Why join Active Soccer?


Established in 2005, Active Soccer offers a unique opportunity to join an ambitious company who are passionate and dedicated to increasing and enhancing football opportunities for young people through coaching and events. The Active Soccer brand has become trusted and recognised for providing fun, healthy and inclusive programmes helping 4 to 16 year old children grow and nurture their confidence, resilience and mindset within a safe environment.  Running After School Programmes, Holiday Camps, Tournaments and Birthday Parties are just some examples of the services you can offer your community. In addition to this we have also introduced Walking Football with the support of our Foundation so you can make even more people active. 

Since launching the franchise model, the development and delivery of high-quality programmes across the UK with a network of coaches that champion the Active values has been of the upmost importance. In order to develop its services and remain relevant, partnering with a variety of organisations such as Change4Life, Decathlon and several National Governing Bodies has been key to ensure that every Active session delivered is created from the best available resources.

Now in its 15th year the focus and passion has never been stronger with innovation and creativity at the forefront of its investment including a new software platform that will play a fundamental role in how both the company and its franchisees will operate. Active Soccer became part of The Active Sports Group a fresh and forward-thinking Group where remaining relevant is key to creating lasting experiences for years to come.
