This season’s competition launches with new finals venue – St. George’s Park
The FA People’s Cup is back following a very special launch event at St. George’s Park (on Friday 12 January), turning dreams of lifting a trophy at Wembley Stadium into a reality for people all over the country.
And with registration to the free-to-enter five-a-side tournament now open to amateur players of all ages and abilities, people can dust off their boots in preparation for the nation’s largest and most inclusive small sided football competition.
To celebrate the launch, a diverse group of amateur players came together at the National Football Centre to take part in The FA’s first ever specialist five-a-side training camp, taking the opportunity to hone their five-a-side-football skills ahead of this year’s tournament.
Attendees, including U14 girls and boys, university students, disability players and walking footballers, took part in expert sessions with elite FA coaches, with advice on perfecting the often match-deciding ‘one-step- penalty’ and mastering the ‘showboating skills’ needed to beat your opponents in style.
