The ESFA & Panini Classroom Challenge returns for 2021 

The ESFA & Panini Classroom Challenge returns for 2021 

The ESFA and Panini were delighted to visit Linara at Fossdene School in September 2021 to present her prizes for winning the 2021 Classroom Challenge, based on the Panini UEFA EURO 2020™ Tournament Edition Official Sticker Collection. The design-a-football competition, which ran throughout April and May, saw over 8,000 entries from hundreds of schools across England. Linara’s design saw her win a presentation from Panini, where she was awarded with a £3,000 cheque for her school, a £50 Amazon voucher for her, plus a football shirt of her choice.  

A New Challenge 

November 2021 sees the 8th Panini Classroom Challenge introduced to primary schools in England with a chance for the winners to bag £2,000 for their school, plus prizes for the winning pupil, presented in school by the Panini team.  

This latest challenge, celebrating Panini’s Premier League Sticker Collection 21/22, will see participating schools receive a box of Panini goodies for their pupils, including the Classroom Challenge worksheets. The team will be asking pupils to design their own super cool football boot, to secure a place in the running for the prize! 

Schools can register to take part in this latest activity by clicking the link below, but hurry – there is only space for 2,000 schools to sign up!

Registered schools will receive their Panini Classroom Challenge goodies in January 2022, and the competition will run from Monday 17th January until Friday 4 February.  

Don’t forget to register your school today!

Calling all Midlands-based primary schools…

Join our winning team!

As part of an ongoing initiative between The English Schools’ FA and Panini, primary schools in selected areas across England are being offered the chance to receive some FREE pupil worksheets, ROAD TO UEFA EURO 2020™ ADRENALYN XL™ Trading Cards and the chance to win a £1,000 school sports equipment voucher.

Panini have created some worksheets that will hopefully inspire pupils to use their trading cards to complete art, maths and English-based activities – because we firmly believe that football is relevant across the whole school curriculum.

Design a shirt

Furthermore, for schools selected to receive these fantastic goodies, there will also be the opportunity for pupils to enter a competition to win a £1,000 Pendle Sports voucher for their school and a £50 Pendle Sports voucher for the winning pupil to spend on equipment for themselves.

We are looking to register schools in the following areas;










West Midlands


If your school resides in one of these areas then, hurry! Registration is only open until 1 April, so for the opportunity to receive these FREE resources and competition packs, primary schools simply need to visit and register their school.

The ESFA are working to try and be more inclusive for primary schools across England within their activity and the partnership with Panini provides the perfect opportunity to be able to do so. Registration is quick and completely free – and you could be in with a chance of providing some fun classroom resources and treats for your school.
