Schools football competitions

Alongside our PE delivery and after school sports clubs, we run a number of inter-schools football competitions helping pupils develop teamwork, sportsmanship and, win or lose, to learn, grow, and be better prepared for life.

Our flagship competition, The Albion Cup, is open to all schools across Sussex. Regional qualifying tournaments takes place across Sussex, with the finals held at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing.

We also run two competitions in partnership with the English Football League (EFL). The EFL Kids Cup is a six-a-side competition for U11 school teams, culminating in finals across the Sky Bet EFL Play-Off weekend in May each year.

The EFL Girls Cup is a six-a-side competition for U13 girls. We host local qualifying events for both competitions at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing with the winners going onto represent the club and compete for a chance to play in the final.
