25 Brand New Football Coloring Pages – Free to Print and Color
This first free football coloring page for kids has our first player working hard to control the ball with a fancy move.
I bet he must be going for a goal! Does this footballer remind you of one of your favorite players? If they do, you could color them in with the colors of their team to show us who you think this could be!
The player in this football coloring sheet is right in the action as he seems to have just been passed the ball.
You could stick to some established team colors for this image, but you could also get creative with your own color choices to make a unique uniform!
What colors will you use for this image?
We have another football player going for it in this football coloring printable. He looks like he’s about to kick the ball to another player, and maybe doing so will result in a much needed goal!
How will you color in the background of this image to show the movement being displayed?
I would use a lot of different colors for the background to suggest the flurry of movement and speed this player is showing.
This next player has been given a tough situation to deal with! The ball is coming at him from a tricky angle, so I bet it would take some skill and precision to successfully intercept this ball.
You can show a mood with colors, so maybe you could use some darker colors for the background to show the concentration and intensity of this move.
We have another cool move being performed in this next free football coloring page. Do you have an idea for which of your favorite team colors you’ll use for this image?
If you can’t decide then you could print out a few copies to use any team colors you’d like!
For our next free football coloring sheet, a player seems to be receiving the ball from someone. I wonder what they will do next with it? Will they pass it along or go for the goal?
We can’t wait to see what your color interpretation of this football moment will be!
The kick being performed in this football printable is something to behold! The timing and precision for such a move would need to be perfect, but this player has pulled it off.
For this picture, maybe you could use a combination of paints and colored pencils for a really intense look to suit this great move!
In this next football coloring page we have another player about to go for the kick. Do you have a team in mind for this image?
You can show us who you think this player is playing for using your colors!
The level of concentration the player is experiencing in this football coloring sheet is clear from the expression on his face!
I wonder what he would do next with the ball after the moment in this picture? Maybe you could draw in the team number of your favorite player in real life onto the shirt of the player in this image!
There’s a huge amount of speed and skill being shown off in this football printable! This is another image that I would suggest using many different colors for the background to suggest whirling movement.
I think it would look cool to do this with a thick paintbrush and some watercolors to really finish off the illusion of movement.
How will you finish off this intense image?
We’re calming things down a bit for this football coloring page. It looks like a quieter moment to me, almost as if this player is taking a moment to practice his footwork.
I would use lighter greens and blues for the background of this picture to help produce a more calming look to the image.
This football coloring sheet puts us right back in the action! Imagine being this close to the game when watching a live match.
If you’ve been coloring in the previous football printables with established team colors, maybe you could pick new ones to make your very own new team!
What would you name your own team if you could? Why not write the name on his uniform for us to see!
It takes a lot of skill and practice to have the amount of skill with the ball that professional players have. The man in this football coloring page shows that he has that skill and practice under his belt!
You could try to shake things up by using different mediums on the same image.
You could maybe use watercolors for the background and colored pencils for the player. What mediums will you use for this skillful player?
When playing football, it’s easy to get passionate and sometimes that passion can erupt into rumbles on the field!
This passion is clear on the face of the player in this football coloring printable.
For this image, I would use a warm red for the background of the image to create a sense of the burning passion that players feel.
For this football coloring page for kids, the player is seconds away from a kick.
Sometimes when you see an amazing move, you wish that you could have a mental snapshot of the moments leading up to it!
This image captures one of those moments, so how will you immortalize this move with color?
This next player looks like he’s weaving the ball through the field with great determination! Football is all about teamwork, but there can be moments of individual heroism as well.
Does this football coloring sheet remind you of a memorable match? If it does, maybe you could color in his uniform to match one of the teams in that game!
It looks like the ball has just been passed to the player in this football printable. When receiving the ball like this, a player has mere seconds to make some important decisions on the fly.
Do you think this player will pass the ball or keep it to go for the goal himself?
This player had to sprint with all his might to get to the ball in time for this football coloring page!
Maybe you could cut out some pictures of real life players that are smaller than the one in this image.
You could stick them in the background of this picture to simulate a real game going on!
It takes an enormous amount of skill and determination to run full speed to intercept the ball without tripping yourself up.
This football coloring sheet shows a player doing just that! I know that if I attempted this I would land up flat on my face.
Which real life player do you think this could be? Let us know by writing their name or number on his shirt!
A header is a tough move to perform without having a football flatten your nose! This football coloring printable shows a player executing this tough move flawlessly, though.
Maybe you could draw in the outline of a cheering crowd behind him to cheer him on for pulling off such an impressive move!
This next free football coloring page shows another player proving that they have immense skills!
For a fun picture, you could get a big white piece of paper and cut out some of the players from these football printables.
If you arranged and stuck them to the paper, it would make it look like there’s a game being played by all your favorites from these coloring pages! We’d love to see a picture if you make something like this.
The player dribbling the ball in this football coloring sheet seems to be taking things a little more slowly.
He seems to be going at a slower pace and is contemplating his next move.
This is another image where I would use some blues for the background, but what colors are you feeling for this printable?
What an incredible move we’re seeing in this football printable! There’s no way this player won’t land up on his backside after this move, but I’m sure it would be worth it if he went to such trouble to do this move.
I would suggest the opposite of the previous printable and use a warm red or yellow for the background of this one to suggest the intensity of this move.
The look on the face of the player in this football coloring page suggests to me that he has a tough move ahead of him!
Maybe you could draw in a speech bubble for this player and write in what he could be thinking. You could even draw a small picture into the speech bubble that shows the move he’s thinking of doing!
Our final image in this collection of free football coloring sheets for kids has a player once again moving at high speed!
For this image, I think it could look cool to color in some silhouettes of players in the background using watercolors.
You could keep the detail at a minimum to suggest the movement of this image!
If you wanted to try this, you could use some of the previous printables as inspiration to draw in the outlines. We hope you’ll share this final football printable to our Facebook page once you complete it!
