About PlayStation F.C. Schools' Cup

The PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup is an exciting grassroots football partnership between PlayStation and the English Schools’ Football Association (ESFA). The football tournaments are open to girls and boys throughout England and there are competitions to cater for school teams between the ages of U12 – U15.

The ESFA is the National Governing body for Schools’ Football in England and currently provides over 40 National Cup competitions for school children across the country. The PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup competitions are open to teams of all ability and there is a menu of specially designed competitions to cater to a variety of skill sets. The ESFA are proud to promote standard cup competitions for both boys and girls, “b-team” cup competitions, elite cup competitions and small schools’ cup competitions – we believe this gives a large proportion of schools in England the opportunity to enjoy schools’ football and the excitement of the PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup tournaments.

Over 2,000 schools and 100,000 children will benefit from the PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup programme in the 2019/20 season and more besides that will benefit from the newly rebranded Next Level campaign, which is providing opportunities for school children in England to live their dreams through the PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup in more ways than ever before.


PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup is going Next Level

This year, Europe’s biggest U12 – U15 schools’ football tournament is kicking up a gear.

The PlayStation F.C. Schools Cup’s mission is to champion the best of youth talent and creativity through football. We believe that, through football, kids can aspire to something beyond their wildest dreams;

– To be the next England superstar, male or female.

– To be the next big thing in fashion.

– To be the next freestyle phenomenon.

– To be the next eSports athlete to take on the world.

Whatever their gift, whether it be on the pitch, in the studio or on the stage, we’re sending out a challenge to kids nationwide.

We will be working with a variety of ambassadors to launch new competitions and activity across football, fashion, freestyle and gaming over the 19/20 season so that more people can get involved.

It’s time to show the world what you can do:
