Danone Nations Cup Toolkit

Season 20/21 update:

We are delighted that the Danone Nations Cup competitions will be reinstated for the 20/21 season, however due to the restrictions created by the Covid-19 pandemic, the offering for this particular competition will be different this season, with ‘normal’ DNC activity resumed for the 21/22 season (from September 2021).

These changes mean we are running just two categories of competition from Easter 2021:

  • U11 Girls’ 9-a-side inter-district cup
  • U11 Boys’ 9-a-side inter-district cup

These 9-a-side competitions will take the place of the usual 7-a-side compettions and will be contested on a knockout principle, where the winning team from each fixture will move forward to the next round. 

You can find full details of the changes to the DNC competition for 20/21 on the DNC Toolkit, which can be downloaded below:
