Kids Cup and Girls Cup return

3 October 2013

The Football League's Kids Cup and Girls Cup competitions are back for the 2013/14 season with a once in a lifetime opportunity to play on hallowed turf at Wembley Stadium on offer.

The two six-a-side cup competitions provide youngsters with the chance to represent their local Football League club on the national stage, with exciting prizes for participating schools, as well as individuals, up for grabs throughout the tournaments.

The Kids Cup is an under-11 competition that culminates in three Wembley finals across the Football League Play-Off weekends in May 2014, while the Girls Cup is for under-13 females, with the grand final staged prior to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final in March 2014.

Over 20,000 school children from 2,500 schools take part in the annual tournaments, which reward the finalists with an unforgettable trip to Wembley - including overnight accommodation, a stadium tour and then the chance to play on the famous pitch.

The competitions also form bridges between schools and their local Football League clubs and, as well as being provided with valuable footballing expertise, opportunities for schools to showcase their achievements often arise.

Last season, Allestree Woodlands School represented Championship club Derby County and their voyage to the Girls Cup grand final was covered on BBC Radio Derby. The youngsters were also invited to a match at Pride Park after winning in the Wembley final against Gillingham representatives Rainham School for Girls.
