Community Football Outreach (CFO)

Ambassadors Football has existed since 1990 to share the Good News of Jesus through football. We love to see local churches serving their local communities through running simple football projects, building relationships and sharing their faith. These projects can be run with children, youth or adults and can be specifically aimed at individuals in the local community.

We do this through our 12 month CFO Journey, where we walk alongside churches to enable them to start and run a project by providing training, ongoing support and resources. 

We would love to invite you to attend a CFO 1st leg for an hour on Zoom, where we begin to look at the impact of football, stories of CFO projects and outcomes, a look to understanding your local community and to see how the journey with Ambassadors can begin.

If your church is interested in starting a football outreach in your community, Ambassadors Football would love to help you.

If you can gather a group of potential volunteers we can deliver a free 1 hour video call presentation for your group. This will aim to inspire your team of volunteers, helping them to imagine how a football outreach in your community might look and the impact it can have.

“The training we received was excellent – practical, focused and pastorally wise. There was a good balance of teaching input as well as hands-on sports demonstration (which our team really enjoyed). Overall, we were encouraged, equipped and inspired as we started out with our gospel-hearted community sports ministry. We’re very thankful for the Ambassadors team and their support!” Santosh, Oak Hill Bible College
