ESFA and inspiresport continue partnership for the 2021/22 season

The ESFA is delighted to announce that their partnership with inspiresport is continuing for another season.

The ongoing partnership, now into its 10th year, is testament to the mutual values held by both organisations, recognising the importance of fun and promoting sporting values with the aim of enriching young people’s lives and creating life-long memories.

This year, following the COVID-19 pandemic, providing opportunities for all players, whatever their ability, is more important than ever. This partnership will help to create these opportunities for schools’ football players across England.

Steve Butchart, Managing Director of inspiresport said “We’re very happy to continue our support of the English Schools’ Football Association for another season and can’t wait to get the U15 Girls and U18 Boys teams away on their respective development tours. Offering opportunities to players of all abilities is the backbone of what we do at inspiresport, and after the challenges of the past 18 months, it’s a great feeling to work with our partners at the ESFA on their elite requirements again whilst also being able to offer similar experiences to the ESFA member schools.”

ESFA Chairman, Mark Hignett said about the continued partnership, “We are delighted to once again be working with inspiresport for the 21/22 season. Aside from the great opportunities that they provide for school children across England with their sports tours, inspiresport also provide a fantastic training camp experience for the ESFA’s England U15 Schoolgirls and U18 Schoolboys. After the 2019/20 England squads’ experiences were cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are excited to see what inspiresport are able to offer to our squads in 2022 and look forward to going on their journey with them”
