Facts

Glasgow Sport's walking football players were included in the 22nd March 2018 episode of Still Game!

Though based on football, the key difference in the rules, from standard football, is that if a player runs then they concede a free kick to the other side.

We also fall in line with Walking Football Scotland's 'Laws of the Game' including:

  • No tackling from behind or from the side
  • 3 touch
  • Height restriction - no higher than crossbar
