Schools across England are in with a chance of winning some great prizes in celebration of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™!

The English Schools’ Football Association are delighted to announce that they will be working in connection with both Panini and the PFA to launch a nationwide competition for both primary and secondary schools and their pupils ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™!

By teaming up with the world famous producers of sticker books and collectibles, the ESFA are inviting schools to take part in a series of brand new, national competitions, which will not only provide pupils with the opportunity to create some wonderful pieces of work as entries, but also provide teachers with some additional learning materials across a variety of subjects over the Summer Term and finally, give schools the chance of winning prizes for taking part and submitting entries.

By using the rich history of the FIFA World Cup™ the partnership will create opportunities to use English, history, geography, art and music classes to encourage pupils to be creative and imaginative and to look at football from some fresh angles. By working alongside Panini and the PFA, the English Schools’ FA will be able to offer a great competition structure and opportunities to win some fantastic prizes for individuals and their schools.

The Panini Group was established over 50 years ago in Modena, Italy and with its subsidiaries throughout Europe, Latin America and North America, is the world brand leader in published collectables. Nick Clark, Special Projects Editor: "Panini, a brand synonymous with football, is incredibly excited to be working with the EFSA and the PFA on this exciting project. We have no doubt that this activity will be an enriching and educational experience for all of the pupils involved and get everyone in the spirit of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™!”

Full details of the competitions can be found here. All schools that register will be entered into a prize draw to win free 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Panini sticker albums and stickers for their pupils. You can email us for more information!
