Enter to be in with a chance of playing at Wembley Stadium...

Ever dreamt of seeing your school play football at a National Stadium on one of the biggest days of the sporting calendar?

The npower Football League Cup is a 6-a-side competition for girls aged under 13 that culminates in the Grand Final before the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final at Wembley in April.


It’s not just about the glory…..

 The new Government has announced their intention to get more young people playing competitive team sports because they believe it’s a ‘vital part of growing up’. Gillingham FC, npower and the Football League couldn’t agree more and we hope the Girls Cup can help by highlighting to pupils the importance of teamwork, the fun of playing football and the rewards of participation and achievement.


At every stage there are some great prizes for schools to win such as team kits and footballs, along with medals, trophies and certificates so all participants can remember their achievement of taking part in one of the country’s largest national football competitions.
