Home General News Lights, camera, action for the biggest schools’ football tournament

Next week the cream of secondary school football in England will be given the full HD treatment, when 15 of this season’s ESFA PlayStation®Schools’ Cup finals are staged at Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium.

The PlayStation Schools’ Cup finals are part of a three-day Festival and are always well supported by the schools. Last year’s event was attended by over 6,000 spectators. That support was further extended with over 100,000 people tuning in to watch the ‘live’ Web TV action. With free entry and a host of activities and competitions laid on for the travelling supporters, the 2018 Festival promises to be the most exciting yet!

All games will be given the full professional, live TV treatment, with multiple camera angles, instant replays, along with a commentary team that includes former England and Liverpool defender John Scales.

Taking place at Reading FC’s state-of-the-art Madejski Stadium, from Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd May, all 15 finals can be viewed live at www.playstationschoolscup.com. The coverage will ensure schools, families and friends of the players can tune in to support their team.

For those that can’t catch the action live, post-event match highlights from every game will be uploaded to the PlayStation Schools’ Cup YouTube channel, as well as ‘Best Goals’ and ‘Best Saves’ compilations.

The PlayStation Schools’ Cup Festival is the season finale of the grassroots football partnership between PlayStation and the ESFA. The partnership encompasses all schools’ football tournaments within the boys and girls U12 to U15 age categories, involving over 2,000 teams and 200,000 players.
