Kids and Girls Cup 2021

Kids and Girls Cup 2021

03 Dec Kids and Girls Cup 2021

These national six-a-side football tournaments aim to encourage children to be active, healthy and develop a strong sense of teamwork. The tournament formats involve every EFL clubs community trust running two local tournaments for schools in their area. For the Kids Cup teams are made up of boys & Girls in school years 5 & 6 who battle it out to win the local stage tournament, and the Girls Cup follows a similar format but is played by girls in school years 7 & 8

The winners of the local stage tournaments then go on to represent both their school and Wycombe Wanderers SET in regional rounds against the winners of other clubs local tournaments and are split according to their clubs division. At this stage, all participants are playing for a place in the national final where the winners of the Northern region play against the winners of the Southern region to be crowned champions of the country. Both of the national finals are normally played in May on the hallowed turf of Wembley stadium; the boys before the Sky Bet Football League One Play-Off Final and the girls prior to the EFL Trophy Final.

WWSET’s two local cup tournaments saw us host 28 different primary and secondary schools with close to 250 children participating over the two events.

Both the Utilita Girls & Kids Cup were played out first with 4 groups of 4 teams battling it out to become group winners in a Champion’s League style format.

Following the group stages, all the winners were placed in a winners group for the second round, the runners-up in the next group and so on for the last two groups. This meant that all teams played continuously throughout the tournament with the same amount of game time for all, nobody was knocked out early, and all the participants could play the second round in an environment of similar ability levels.

After all, the second round group matches had been played the team crowned winners were the one that came out on top of the winner’s group.
