EFL Kids Cup

The EFL Kids Cup is a national six-a-side competition for U11s schoolchildren (Years 5 and 6) and culminates in three finals across the EFL Play-Off weekends in May.

Each EFL club organises a Kids Cup local competition for all local schools wishing to take part. The winners will then represent Walsall FC at the EFL’s area finals, and perhaps even at Wembley Stadium

To get involved please email paul.larvin@walsallfc.co.uk, or for more information visit the EFL Kids Cup website.


EFL Girls Cup

The EFL Girls Cup is a six-a side competition, much like the Kids Cup, but for U13s schoolgirls. Over 6000 girls are involved in the competition, through the EFL’s 72 Community Trusts each year!

The winning school of our club final will represent Walsall FC at the area finals, and, should they win that, at Wembley Stadium in the grand final prior to the EFL Trophy final in March.

To get involved please email paul.larvin@walsallfc.co.uk, or for more information visit the EFL Girls Cup website.
