Home Football News 2016 PlayStation Schools’ Cup Festival line-up complete!

The 30-team line-up for next month’s English Schools’ FA (ESFA) PlayStation Schools’ Cup Festival is now complete as Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium prepares to host 15 national football finals from Monday 16th May to Wednesday 18th May.

With PlayStation Schools’ Cup competitions beginning back in September, some of England’s best boys’ and girls’ schools footballers will showcase their skills out on the pitch with the aim of being crowned national champions.

Away from this thrilling on-pitch action, there are also a number of fun supporter activities to complement the day including t-shirt cannons, giveaways and PlayStation 4 gaming experiences set up in the stadium’s concourse area. As well as the pupils, friends and families of the competing schools, local schools have also been invited to join the fun and be part of this action-packed occasion, one that was described as having a ‘carnival atmosphere’ last year.

Over 6,000 spectators attended the 2015 event and hopes are high that this impressive total can be exceeded.
