The PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup is about to get taken to the Next Level…

The PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup – Next Level is an exciting update on the existing grassroots football partnership between PlayStation and the English Schools’ Football Association.

The PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup is Europe’s biggest U12 – U15 Schools’ Football tournament for boys and girls and this season will see over 80,000 children take part.

This year, the partnership will create more opportunities than ever for young people to showcase their creative talents.

Now featuring: fashion, freestyle and FIFA 20

As well as showing the world their skills on the pitch, from season 2019/20, students at schools across England can also compete to be the next big thing in fashion, a break-through football freestyler, or the PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup gaming champion.

With mentoring from some of the biggest stars from football, fashion and gaming, this is a unique opportunity for the next generation to show the world what they can do by taking their skills to the next level.

Stay tuned…

The ESFA Super League is here…

ESFA U18 National Cup Competitions just got Super…

In a change to the former U18 National Cup menu, the ESFA have introduced the first ever U18 Super League competitions for boys and girls.

The new set of competitions are designed for those schools, colleges and private providers which offer a football academy or development programme at sixth form level. In a bold new step for the ESFA, these competitions now mean the U18 offering is fully inclusive of all establishments offering programmes allowing students to benefit from regular football training, strength & conditioning and possibly analysis sessions – meaning we are once again increasing participation within National Cup settings.

The competitions, which pupils in years 11, 12 and 13 are eligible to enter are based on the Champions League format, beginning with a group phase, followed by knockout competition after Christmas. The National Final will be held during May at a Premier League or Championship stadium, where the two finalists in each competition will compete to be crowned National Super League Champions.

The ESFA are delighted to be able to open up their competition offer to include organisations outside of traditional ‘schools’ or ‘colleges’ in a bid to create an incredible level of competition for teams across England.
