matchfitLeicester-based Community Projects Plus is aiming to improve amateur footballers’ awareness of health issues, specifically focusing on Chlamydia screening, alcohol awareness and stopping smoking, through the MatchFit Health project.

Funded by the Leicester Partnership NHS Trust, the project is working in partnership with the Leicestershire and Rutland County FA and The Alliance Football League to screen footballers, aged between 18 and 24-years, for Chlamydia.

Each club taking part receives a good quality match ball and is entered into a free prize draw to win a full team kit. If your team or sports club is interested in taking part in the screening programme please contact

If you are aged between 16 and 24-years-old and would like to receive a free Chlamydia test then text ‘MatchFit’ and include your name, address and date of birth to 88020.
