The Tie of the Round events have featured some superb National Cup football matches so far as the focal point of the day, with students and family members being invited to show their supportand cheer on their School.
We are trying to promote the whole football experience, for pupils on and off the field and throughout the school. The e-reporter experience, for pupil's who are not involved on the field will give individuals an opportunity to be a match-day journalist, conducting interviews, taking photos and submitting a match report which will be entered into a national competition for some great prizes.

As we aim to inspire the next generation of superstars, each event has been supported by a locally based Premier League footballer. So far the response has been fantastic and all the footballers involved have interacted superbly with the kids, sharing their tips and answering questions on their footballing lifestyle.
The PlayStation Schools' Cup also brings with it a great opportunity for Schools' to use the latest gaming equipment and releases to promote teamwork, fairplay and a competitive spirit! The PlayStation Gameday Hub was unveiled at our most recent event in the Midlands at The RSA Academy and went down a storm with pupil's queuing round the corner to get inside and have a look!
