Mansfield Town Football in the Community runs a Walking Football session every Saturday at the One Call Stadium, focusing on never hanging up the boots! Our sessions are open to males and females over 45, and alongside our weekly sessions, our squad of players are also invited to play in friendly matches and tournaments throughout the year.
