Schools Football Week- 3rd -7th February 2020

Schools’ Football Week is almost here – don’t forget to register for some amazing opportunities

We are really excited to be bringing you Schools’ Football Week from the 3 – 7 February. The campaign is all about celebrating Schools’ Football in whatever format it takes shape for you. Without your input we can’t paint an accurate picture of the schools’ football landscape in England, which is exactly what we want to do.

It’s really simple to register – just follow the link below and let us know how you will be celebrating Schools’ Football Week this year. From something as small as organising a five-a-side match at lunchtime, to something larger like running a week’s worth of football-based classroom based lessons – whatever your contribution, it will really help us to celebrate together. Even if you aren’t planning activity, it would still be great if you could register, just to show your support for the campaign and the importance of recognising the hard work and time that goes into Schools’ Football in this country.


For all registered activity you could be in with a chance of winning 30 tickets to a free tour of Wembley Stadium – a good enough reason in itself to keep us updated!

Pupil Survey

We also really want to take the opportunity to give your pupils the chance to really have a voice on the world of football – this is open to all pupils of all ages – we really want to get a good idea of how children feel about the landscape of football as a whole. This isn’t just for players, this really is for anyone who wants the chance to share their opinions.

Pupils can log the name of their school whilst completing the survey and this will automatically enter the school into a draw to win a free football kit for a squad of 15 from our Official Kit Suppliers, Pendle – an opportunity not to be missed. Please share the link below with your pupils for them to take part –


Getting social

We have some great logos and assets to share with you, you can download them here. We want to create a real presence of the campaign on social media – and for those of you involved to also share videos, photos and details on what you are doing to celebrate Schools’ Football Week.

We will be tracking all posts that include the hashtags #SchoolsFootballWeek and #SFWGameOn and will be entering all of these posts into a draw to win some additional prizes and rewards – so make sure you keep us updated and don’t miss out. We’ll share some more information over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

National Schools' Football Week, The World of Schools' Football

English Schools’ FA Announce Schools’ Football Week 2020

Save the date: The ESFA announce the return of national Schools’ Football Week for Monday 3 – Friday 7 February 2020

The English Schools’ FA are delighted to announce the return of Schools’ Football Week for the third year but with a fresh new re-brand and a more focused approach on truly promoting, understanding and sharing the incredible world of Schools’ Football.

Schools’ Football Week is a campaign not only to highlight the huge scale of Schools’ Football in England, but also an opportunity for schools across the country to showcase the talent, dedication and benefits of schools’ football, using their own experiences. The ESFA want to use this opportunity to promote how important Schools’ Football is for children in England as well as all the related benefits of taking part in this type of physical activity.

Much more information will be coming soon regarding activities and events that will be hosted throughout Schools’ Football Week, some of which is in conjunction with our fantastic sponsors and partners, but in the meantime – save the date – and look out for how you can use the opportunity to promote the wonderful activity that takes place where you are!
