Welcome to the MFC Popley website!


Based in Popley within the town of Basingstoke, MFC Popley was founded in 2005 and is run by a fantastic team of committed volunteers. We are dedicated to coaching boys and girls of all age groups (year R and above) to play football. We provide the children with encouragement along with a fun, friendly and safe environment where they can thrive and learn the game of football from qualified coaches. We are passionate about providing an environment that encourages children of all abilities to learn and enjoy everything that football has to offer.


We are an FA Charter Standard Club which is achieved by demonstrating all the appropriate practices to ensure that the children are safe and free to express themselves and have as much fun as possible whilst doing it.


MFC Popley will have teams from various age groups competing in the Peter Houseman Youth League on Sundays and North East Hants Youth League on a Saturday.


For further information on the Peter Houseman League, please visit the website: www.phyl.co.uk


For further information on the North East Hants Youth League, please visit the website: www.nehyl.org.uk


If you have any questions or comments about our club or wish to enquire about your child joining our football family, then please contact us.
