ESFA National Finals at Stoke City FC

Stoke City FC are set to host 12 ESFA National Cup Finals across the 9th – 11th May

The English Schools’ FA will be returning to Stoke City’s stadium in May this year for a 3-day feast of football finals, hosting four finals per day and crowning 12 National Champions by Saturday evening.

Hosting a mixture of school, college and representative cup finals, the event is certain to showcase an exceptional level of footballing skill. We are encouraging as many spectators as possible to attend events across the three days, with the majority of matches completely free of charge to all spectators – and all matches free of charge to students.

If you can’t make it down to Stoke City, all matches will once again be streamed live, online and for free thanks to our broadcast partners, 247.TV and all will be available to watch via the ESFA’s YouTube Channel, ESFA TV.

You can check out the fixture schedule for each of the three days below. Hospitality packages are available to purchase for all 12 matches, head to our Events page to book hospitality for your chosen match.

The ESFA would like to wish all 24 teams the very best of luck in their National Finals this year and we look forward to welcoming everybody along to Stoke City in 2019!
