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. 

Unfortunately, the Kickabout is over for 2022, but we’ll be back again in 2023 so keep an eye out for announcements and register above to be the first to hear about next year’s plans. 

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

Monster Kickabout 2022 kicked off on the 4th of July, with the final whistle being blown on the 8th of July 2022. Register your interest above to be the first to hear about next year’s plans. 

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!

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!
