Pass4 Soccer closes for business

The ESFA are sad to share the news that their Sports Scholarship providers, Pass4 Soccer have announced they are to close the business.

Pass4 have issued the following statement: “the US scholarship industry has been shaken to its core by the onset of COVID 19 following the total shut down of US academic and inter collegiate sports until further notice and as such the owner of Pass4Ltd has taken the decision to close the business after 16 years.”

The ESFA would like to issue thanks to Pass4 for their support of the England U15 and U18 squads for many years and wish all Pass4 employees success in whichever direction they now pursue.

FA Women and Girls’ Awards 2020 – Nominations are open

FA Women and Girls’ Football Awards 2020 now includes a category for education establishments

The ESFA are eager to make their member schools and associations aware of the new category included in the Women & Girls’ awards that provides a wonderful opportunity for educational establishments to be nominated. The FA are looking to recognise an institution that demonstrates that they have provided girls and/or young women to either learn through football, participate in football, compete and/or lead in football.

There will be a winner of the “School, College or University of the year in Female Football” award, with the ceremony taking place at the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on 9 May 2020 – and we want to encourage as many nominations for this category as possible. You can find out some more information on the awards, including nomination criteria here.

The ESFA has a wonderful network of schools and colleges that provide and promote girls’ football to pupils and it would be fantastic to celebrate our schools being shortlisted or being presented with this award!

Nominations close midday on Thursday 19 March
