Matches around Australia may have been postponed but you can keep football in your life with the #PlayAtHomeChallenge.
While it is important to practise social distancing during this time of uncertainty, it has never been more important to be active, connect with each other and keep your skills sharp!
So, if you are missing your weekend football fix out on the parks and pitches of Australia, take your ball and show us your best moves.
Whether it’s in your own back yard, in a quiet field or in a safe place at home, we want you to join our #PlayAtHomeChallenge.
Here’s how it works:
- Every week we will announce a skill for you to master
- Record yourself showing your best efforts
- Challenge three of your friends to match your moves
- Post your video on social media – and be sure to tag your three friends and include #PlayAtHomeChallenge and #StayAtHomeChallenge
Despite the tough times we are experiencing, Football Federation Australia is committed to making sure the health and safety of our sport stays strong during an unprecedented period in our lives.
We may not be able to compete as usual – but we can still learn new skills, engage with each other and keep our community spirit alive.
The grassroots football season may have been postponed but the world still needs to see your skills.
The first #PlayAtHomeChallenge
And, we can officially reveal that the first skill for you to master will be... keep-ups, brought to you by Westfield Matildas and Everton attacker Hayley Raso, and Socceroos and Western Sydney Wanderers star Mitch Duke!
Flick the ball up with your feet and juggle the ball 10 times, without allowing the ball to hit the ground.
Did you know? The record for the longest keepie-uppie is held by Englishman Dan Magness, who once juggled the ball for 26 hours using his feet, legs, shoulders and head!
