The Y5/6 Primary Football Programme consists of a sequence of festivals where schools play 7 a-side mini soccer matches against other schools.

Part 1 of the programme will start in September and run on a Thursday after school throughout September and October. The matches in the league will be played over 3 nights, every other Thursday and dates will be confirmed when you are assigned to your league and venue.

The leagues are played at 3 separate venues – Greenfield Community College, Sedgefield Community College & Spennymoor

Schools can choose to play in Tier 1 (higher ability) or Tier 2 (middle ability) and will be split into groups and assigned to their closest venue and fixtures will be distributed on the first night of each group.
