Under-17 European Championship - How to Get Involved

England will proudly host the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in May 2018.

The tournament is a unique opportunity for your club to see the next Pogba, Rooney or Ronaldo on your very own doorstep. 

It takes place between Friday 4 May and Sunday 20 May, across 10 match days at six venues: Rotherham United, Chesterfield, Burton Albion, Walsall, St. George’s Park and Loughborough University. 

England will play in the opening fixture at Chesterfield FC on Friday 4 May, with subsequent group games at Walsall FC on Monday 7 May and Rotherham United on Thursday 10 May. 

On the back of recent success across our development teams, including England Under-17s and England Under-20s both winning World Cups in 2017 – the tournament presents a fantastic opportunity to inspire and capture the imagination of young people across the region. 

What’s more, there are a range of opportunities for clubs to get involved in the tournament.

Firstly, Charter Standard clubs can claim up to ten free tickets per fixture. Additional tickets start from just £2 for children and £4 for adults.

Charter Standard Clubs who book before Friday 30 March will enter a prize draw to win a money can’t buy prize of 20 places on the official UEFA Youth Programme at the final. 

This includes various opportunities [depending on the age of your squad] such as player escort places (6-9 years old) and flag bearers (10-14 years old). 

Non-Charter Standard Clubs will be able to purchase tickets when all tickets go on sale later in March - but all clubs are eligible to register interest to take part in the official final draw for the tournament, taking place on 5 April at St. George’s Park.

Ahead of the draw ceremony there will be an ‘FA For All’ themed mini-tournament on the indoor 3g pitch for the following categories: U7 girls, walking football, U17 boys and PAN disability football.
