Match Fit is Newcastle United Foundation's flagship health project promoting healthy eating and keeping fit among children.

Funded by the Premier League PFA Community Fund, NHS North East, NHS North of Tyne and Communities for Health, Match Fit aims to increase physical activity and health awareness in children under 11.

Using its influence within the community and expertise in fitness, Newcastle United Foundation's Match Fit programme is a six week course delivered within curriculum time by qualified coaching and nutrition staff.  Schools are also offered a six week extension programme with all session plans and resources so that teachers can carry on delivering these important messages after the six week course ends.  The overriding message running through the programme is that good food, fitness and football can be fun and enjoyable for everyone.
