Information on this season's competition run by npower...


Ever dreamt of seeing your school play football at Wembley Stadium on one of the biggest weekends of the sporting calendar? The npower Football League Cup is a 6-a-side competition for pupils aged under 11 that culminates in three finals across the npower Football League Play-Off weekends in May 2013.
It’s not just about the glory…..
npower and the Football League believe our Kids Cup can help by highlighting to pupils the importance of teamwork, the fun of playing football and the rewards of participation and achievement.

We understand that the glory of a National Final is great for everyone involved and are committed to ensuring that as many schools take part as possible. npower and the Football League are keen to see 2500 schools participate in the Kids Cup competition this season with 25,000 pupils experiencing this opportunity.  
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.
When and where is the local stage of the tournament being held?
