Why Active Soccer?

By choosing Active Soccer you will be joining a progressive reputable company with a recognised brand. You will be made to feel welcome and a valued member and part of our team of franchisees each making a significant contribution within their own communities, by promoting and providing ‘Fun, Healthy and Inclusive opportunities for young people’.

We are proud that the Active Soccer brand and business model has been recognised by the Nat West and RBS. Our partnership with the banks means you can access advice and financial support to assist the start-up of your business. Over 80% of our franchisees have benefited from this opportunity.

With our current low cost package you may have additional working capital available that could be invested into your business start-up plan. Many of our existing franchisees opted to purchase or lease a branded Active Soccer van with the immediate benefit of being able to transport equipment to venues whilst promoting their business and products at the same time.


Active Soccer was formed in 2005 as a Prince’s Trust start up business.
With the help and support of the Prince’s Trust the model was successfully developed over a period of 4 years by the company Managing Director Mark Whitwood. In 2008/9 the franchise opportunity was launched and as result of the efforts of the Active Soccer management team, the area managers and their coaches we are now represented in more than 25 areas throughout the UK.

Who we are looking for?

Active Soccer welcomes interest from suitably qualified, experienced self-motivated individuals or couples who have the drive and passion to start their own business and improve opportunities in their own community.
