Welcome to musicfootballfatherhood.com
“The Mumsnet for dads.”
Bringing you think-pieces, conversation and social commentary. We provide a space for grown conversation on all the important things in life: Music, Football and Fatherhood.
musicfootballfatherhood.com is home to the online community of fathers, and men looking to be fathers in the future, from the UK and beyond. Think of us as the ‘mumsnet for dads’. We are a resource and a space where dads can be free to talk and read about things that are important to us; stuff like work-life balance, money management, relationships and of course music and football. We share stories from fathers, review products, share advice, report the latest news on law and legislation and host a forum for everyone to get involved and share their views and experiences.
The modern father is a new breed. We are way more involved and present than ever before. But every modern father is different. Whether you are a single parent, father of a blended family, a stay-at-home dad or a father of quadruplets, we are here to inspire, inform and support you on your journey.
Our ultimate aim is to help improve society and tackle some of the many issues we face by building strong families and communities. We believe this all starts at home.
Meet The Team
Elliott Rae: Founder & Editor-in-Chief
“I had the original idea for musicfootballfatherhood while my wife was pregnant and I was about to be a father for the first time. I had so many questions and, as well as talking to family and friends, I started to look online for answers and inspiration. But all I found was links to mummy based websites, there was very little written by people like me and for people like me. I was sure that I wasn’t the only one feeling like this so I went about creating the platform I was looking for. My first year of fatherhood has been a roller coaster and being able to document it all has been a blessing. Throughout the journey to creating the platform I’ve met so many inspiring people and learnt so much, I hope any one visiting can get just as much knowledge, inspiration and information that I have.”

Being a creative writer and a football lover who has also just become a father, Saffa and MFF is a match made in heaven!
“Fatherhood has been a humbling experience thus far. After watching my child enter the world of consciousness I had a new found respect level for my mother and every other woman on the planet who had given birth the old fashioned way. So far it is nothing but hugs, gurgles, kisses, tears and nappy changes but I look forward to what fatherhood has to offer in the future”.
