Regional Selectors

The International Programme is governed by the ESFA’s Council through its Representative Football Committee. The Committee sets the international programme, which is built around the competitive fixtures provided by the Schools’ International Football Association Board (SAFIB). The Council further supports the international programme by running a series of regional trials, co-ordinated by a Council member or their nominee.

For the 19/20 season, regional co-ordinators are:

Each team is run by a set of volunteers and we are immensely grateful to them to giving their time to support the international programme. We hope that our volunteer management teams have as good an experience as the pupils who play.
