ESFA Internationals, International Football

England Centenary Shield matches and how you can be a part of them…

The ESFA has an exciting opportunity to offer…

The ESFA want to go out to tender for the opportunity to sponsor this season’s international England home-match coverage. We expect this coverage to be largely watched by the U18 age group target market, as well as their families and friends. Last season’s coverage has had almost 4,000 views via YouTube and the 2017 coverage reached almost 11,000 views.

Streaming Success

In 2018 our National final videos reached over 23k views and we now boast over 2k subscribers to the YouTube channel, ESFA TV. Thousands of people regularly view our lives streams and this would be the perfect chance for the right organisation to showcase their support for schools’ football by sponsoring the match coverage, also providing a captive audience as par for the course.


The ESFA would provide promotion of sponsors via social media as well as within the online coverage. Boasting a strong social media presence, particularly on twitter, the ESFA are able to help sponsors reach large audiences through this activity.

The ESFA’s international programme is consistently the highest performing topic across all media platforms and uptake has been especially high this season, we anticipate that this is likely to also have an impact on viewing figures when it comes to the live coverage. There will be two home matches again this year, one on 8 March at Slough Town FC and the other on 5 April at Redditch United FC. We are very keen to be able to once again provide high quality coverage of these matches and urge anyone who thinks their organisation may benefit as a direct result of this, to contact us for further details.

The ESFA’s search for this season’s most talented Schools’ Footballers to represent their country in 2019 sees 18 girls from across England head to Shrewsbury this weekend for their kit presentation and first training session as a full squad.

Trials for the ESFA U15 England Schoolgirls’ began back in October 2018, where players nominated by their counties were whittled down through regional trials until the official squad was chosen after final trials took place at Stafford Town FC in December. This Sunday (13 December), the girls will be presented with their England Shirts during their day at Shrewsbury Sports Village, where they will then take part in various drills and training activities throughout the course of the day.

In the year of the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019, which helps highlight the importance and growth of the Women’s Game, the ESFA U15 squad will head over to Eindhoven courtesy of ESFA partners, inspiresport, for a warm weather training camp ahead of the Bob Docherty home nations tournament in Salou during April.
