Pupils in years 5 and 6 to be part of Sixfields tournament

23 April 2018

Northampton Town are looking for 16 local schools to take part in an exciting Cobblers World Cup competition kicking off in September!

The Cobblers World Cup, sponsored by PTS Training & Development, will consist of 16 school teams from years 5 and 6 who will each be allocated a country. The pupils will learn all about their allocated country, creating a project incorporating their country’s culture, religion, history, language & currency with a chance to win an Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition for their school and then battle it out on the pitch to become champions of the world!

Each Cobblers World Cup match will be played at Sixfields during a home Saturday league game next season with each child and teacher taking part receiving a complimentary ticket to sit in the Mick George Family Area and cheer the Cobblers on.

Commercial Manager Caroline Lucy said: “The World Cup is a huge event in the footballing calendar and together with our new back of shirt sponsor, PTS, we developed this tournament to give local schools not only the chance of winning the title of Cobblers World Cup Champions, but also a chance to get £1,000 to spend on school sports equipment, free tickets to watch a game here at Sixfields, and of course the huge trophy to display proudly in their school. We are really excited to be opening this up to local schools as it benefits them through both sport and education.”

To enter, schools should please share or retweet our Cobblers World Cup post on Facebook or Twitter and then send us a direct message for the next step. Entries close at 3pm on Friday 25th May.
