#BackToFootball | The New Season
5 September 2019 • By - Harry Thompson
It’s that time of year again, the football season is upon us and players up and down the land are itching to step out on the pitch once more to enjoy the beautiful game with their team-mates. With kids heading back to school, summer holidays coming to an end for most, it’s the perfect time to get #BackToFootball no matter what level you’re looking to play at.
For some, the thrill of playing competitive football again is the main attraction. Experiencing the ups and downs of emotions throughout the physical and draining season is why we love to play for/support a team. Going to battle and giving your all to claim three points for your side at the weekend in a fiercely competitive league is what some thrive one, keeping them playing year in year out.
For others, there will be no better feeling than simply playing alongside some of your best friends and enjoying the game. Whilst winning is important to most players, the importance of social interaction may be the perfect foil to unwind after the busy working week and just what some are looking for. Sport in general is a great medium for maintaining friendships, whilst providing the opportunity to create new and long-lasting ones.
No matter what your reasoning, getting #BackToFootball this September – and playing sport in general – will contribute to improving both your physical and mental fitness. The importance of being active at least once a week is becoming more and more apparent in the progressively fitness orientated society we live in today.
Physical activity, as well as increased social interaction are natural mood boosters, whilst playing a team sport helps to build camaraderie and team-working skills. These can be transferred into everyday life and are important aspects to working life. There are a number of benefits to playing sport, we’ve just touched on a few, but any excuse for a kick-about with your mates is a great one!
