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.

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 www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/esfapanini2020 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.

ESFA begins search for new digital system

The Association requires a new state of the art digital interface…can your company help?

The English Schools’ Football Association (ESFA) is the national governing body for schools’ football, providing opportunities for more than 73,000 teams to play extra-curricular football each year. The charity is continuously looking to develop, govern and showcase the sport of football in schools in an increasingly effective, fresh, engaging and dynamic way, appealing to parents, pupils, teachers and investors alike. As part of this ambition, the ESFA needs a world-class digital platform that matches its position in the marketplace, and informs, engages and inspires millions more people to fall in love with the schools’ game.

The ESFA is therefore inviting interested parties to tender for the design and delivery of a new digital ecosystem. We’re looking for a collaborative and creative supplier who can support us to develop our systems to be flexible, sustainable and fit for the future. It is vital that this work integrates our operations across the Association.

It is important for us that we adopt an agile, user-led approach to we can place our membership at the heart of developments and ensure that technology enhances our model effectively, meeting our needs in a cost-efficient way.
