The Community Sports Foundation (CSF) would like to invite your school to participate in the English Football League (EFL) Kids Cup 2017/18.
The prestigious Schools Cup is a five-a-side tournament for U11 boys and girls in Norfolk. Funded by the EFL, the Cup is completely free to enter, with the winning school getting the special opportunity to represent Norwich City Football Club at the EFL Kids Cup.
The CSF Schools Cup will be held at The Football Development Centre in Bowthorpe, with three dates available for entry – Friday 12th January, Friday 19th January, and Friday 26th January, 2018.
The top schools that progress from each day will then qualify for our Champions’ Day to be held on Tuesday 6th February (subject to change); the winners there will represent Norwich City FC at the EFL Kids Cup regional finals in Reading in March, with the once-in-a-lifetime chance to play at Wembley up for grabs.
The tournament’s unique format will see girls take to the field in the first-half, with the boys getting their chance in the second – the aggregate score over both halves determines the result. Therefore with two substitutes per half, your squad can include up to 14 children (7 boys and 7 girls).
To enter, please complete the entry form above and return it by Wednesday 13th December 2017 via email or post. A limited number of spots are available and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
We hope that you can join us!
