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 take place in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex and West Sussex with teams qualifying through to the finals, which are held at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing.

We also run two competitions in partnership with the Premier League. The Premier League Schools Tournament (U11 mixed and U11 girls only) culminate in a national finals event against all other Premier League clubs in May each year.

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 the one-in a life time chance to play in the final at a Premier League stadium.
