With everyone currently staying home to protect the NHS and save lives, we know people may be missing football. That's why we have taken the time to round up all the different games, challenges, activities and resources available for you to get your football fix from the comfort of your own home.
Whether you're a young player, a coach, or a parent (who's now a home tutor) there is loads for the whole family, so make sure to let us know how you get on by tagging @HerefordshireFA on facebook, instagram and twitter!
First things first. The FA have got heaps of football related resources on the Football's Staying Home section of their website. From advice on keeping fit and looking after your mental health to football themed educational resources and football skills and games there really is something for everyone. Plus they keep adding to it everyday so we are confident they will keep you occupied!
If you haven't already downloaded the FA Superkicks app, what are you waiting for? The app is packed full of different skills and challenges for young ballers to tick off and complete at home whilst earning points and badges. Almost all the skills and challenges require nothing but a football (we recommend going out to the back garden so you don't break anything in doors while mastering your new tricks and flicks). PLUS at 2pm everyday, the FA are uploading a new superkicks challenge to their twitter for kids to try at home.

Our friends at PACES have been steadily releasing a stream of excellent educational resources and football challenges over the past couple of weeks. Make sure to scroll through their feeds and work your way through each one; why not film it and send them your best efforts!

Over the next few weeks we will be looking to keep our coaching community as engaged as possible. This will include releasing coaching practices and games for your kids to try in the garden as well as online chats and discussions for grassroots coaches.

We know there is no football on the tele at the moment, and the European Championships have been postponed for another 12 months. However that doesn't mean you can't watch international football. FIFA's #WorldCupAtHome allows you to relive some of the biggest and best matches from past World Cup's with magic from Ronaldo, Maradona and Zidane all available for your viewing. This weekend classic matches including Portugal vs Spain (Russia 2018), Brazil vs France (Germany 2006) and the official film of the 2014 World Cup will be added to the playlist which already includes Spain vs Netherlands (Brazil 2014 - who needs an excuse to rewatch that Van Persie header) and England vs USA (France 2019).
