Futtymania Academy

Futtymania is pleased to announce it is ready to re-open the academy with updated sessions, venue and regulations to ensure everyone’s safety. Please ensure you have thoroughly read the guidelines below before your child attends any of our sessions.


If any child or parent develops any of the below symptoms:

  • A high temperature (above 37.8C)
  • Has developed a new continuous cough
  • Loss of or change in normal sense of taste or smell

They are advised to not attend the session and inform the Futtymania team of their absence, and follow NHS guidelines for further support.


Participants are asked to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the session starts and depart promptly when it finishes. Children and parents/carers should not congregate at the venue and should maintain social distancing at all times. We kindly ask all children and parents/carers to wait in their cars until one of the coaches signals it is safe to proceed to the pitch.


Participants should bring with them their own named water bottles, and should avoid putting them next to each other so as to minimize the chances of children being too close to each other when they have a drink. Furthermore, needless to say they must not share their drinks with anyone else. In addition parents/guardians must be outside the pitch area and adhere to the social distancing guidelines at all times.

Please note all sessions will be on outdoor astro turf. We recommend that players wear trainers and sports wear of their choice, keeping in mind weather and pitch conditions. Football kits or any suitable sports wear is preferred and in addition the official Futtymania branded range of Football kits will be available to purchase very soon for the children. Please remember to name the water bottles and any other items the child bring such as jackets etc to avoid confusion and loss of items.

In the event of a player becoming ill during the session, they should be immediately removed from the session and taken home as soon as possible. From there on NHS guidance should be followed.


Players will be split up into bubble groups with a ration of 1:15 (coach:children). They will stay in this bubble until the end of the session and there will be a staggered departure to avoid any unnecessary contact and maintain social distancing.


Please ensure if your child wears glasses they must be wearing sports glasses/goggles to participate in sessions. If your child needs an inhaler please ensure this is present with them during the session and kept with their named water bottle. Failure to have an inhaler present will result in the child being unable to participate in that session.

Please note all sessions will be on outdoor astro turf. We recommend players to wear trainers and sports wear of there choice. Children can wear sports wear such as jogging pants, and t-shirts or football kits if preferred. The full range of Football kits will be available to purchase very soon. Please do not forget the named bottle of water and a water proof jacket if weather changes. Please note sessions will run as per dates listed. Sessions continue in all weather conditions, where weather is deemed to be unsafe a member of the team will contact you to confirm the session has been cancelled, if you do not hear from the team this implies sessions go ahead. In this case the ‘session’ cancelled will be replaced with another session at a later date. (this will be a fixed date) If a child is unable to attend a session this will be counted as missed session and will not be replaced.


We are offering an adjusted schedule of our regular academy activities in order to comply with Covid guidelines set by the government and the FA. These sessions all take place at our new outdoor venue:

Lady Barn House School, Schools Hill, Cheadle, SK8 1JE
