What is Monster Kickabout?

Monster Kickabout is a nationwide Primary School football initiative from Sports Direct and Nike, created to encourage more kids to take up football, with free resources and football equipment provided to help teachers host a week of football fun.

Our goal is to help put the ALL back into football. We want ALL kids of ALL genders and ALL abilities to find their reason to LOVE the game.

With a week of easy to execute lesson plans for both on pitch and in classroom learning, and thousands of pounds worth of free equipment up for grabs, join the Monster Kickabout squad.

But don’t just take our word for it…

Here’s what the teachers who took part last year had to say about why you should sign up…


“Some of the kids at my school might not have played much football before, but they got involved in the event and embraced the fun of sport”


Adam Barnard
Lark Hall Primary School

“Schools get supplied with loads of equipment and coaching ideas, and Monster Kickabout has also helped these children mentally, dealing the stresses of school and home life”


George Hoy and Emily Webster
St. Marks West Essex Catholic School

“The reason schools should be signing up is because you’re broadening so many horizons with so many young children”


Joe Martin
Thomas Lord Audley School

When is Monster Kickabout week?

Monster Kickabout 2022 kicks off on the 4th of July, with the final whistle being blown on the 8th of July 2022.

Can multiple teachers sign up from one school?

Yes, but unless your monster power is cloning, there’s no need as your school can only enter once. So one teacher per school is perfect!

The first 2000 schools to sign up will receive a monster kit pack bursting with football equipment. Every school will also receive a welcome pack full of lesson plans to help your school host an epic week of football fun!

Can I share our Monster Kickabout efforts on Social Media?

Of course, we’d love to see all your monster efforts. There’s no prizes for doing this, just showing off!

How do you know if you’re one of the first 2000 schools?

We will email all schools that are within the first 2000 to sign up, so it’s best to check your inbox to find out. If you were successful, this email will also contain information on when you will receive your kit packs.

What if you’re not one of the first 2000 schools?

If you’re not part of the first 2000 schools to sign up then do not fear, you’ll still receive a 20% off Sports Directory Voucher, as well as all the resources and lesson plans you need to host a Monster Kickabout week to remember!
