As football fever grips the nation in the countdown to the World Cup, many children are even more eager to play ‘the beautiful game’.

However, a new poll has found that one in five children aged 6-11 years do not get any support from their parents to play sport outside school.

Half of boys and 15% of girls say they’d play more sport if their parents were prepared to drive them to sports clubs.

Yet, conversely, the David Lloyd Leisure poll found that a third of parents believe their children should be playing more sport.

And with the World Cup approaching, there has never been a better time to get football-crazy kids involved in the national game.
