Local young people to represent Mansfield Town in Premier League Kicks Cup 2024 Regional Tournament

Young people representing Mansfield Town will take part in the Under-16 mixed and Under-16 girls’ Premier League Kicks Cup regional tournaments, in a bid to secure their place at the 2024 finals. 


Nine regional tournaments are being staged at community facilities across the country, with hundreds of young people representing Premier League, EFL and National League clubs, hoping to win the opportunity to represent their club in the Premier League Kicks Cup 2024 finals at St George’s Park in July.


Walsall and Preston North End are the current Premier League Kicks Cup champions, having won the Under-16 mixed and Under-16 girls’ tournaments respectively in 2023.


The Premier League Kicks Cup tournament is one of the competition elements of Premier League Kicks.


Premier League Kicks uses the power of football and sport to inspire young people to reach their potential, in some of the most high-need areas in England and Wales.


Premier League Charitable Fund Chief Executive, Ruth Shaw OBE, said: “Premier League Kicks continues to have an incredible impact on communities across England and Wales, providing hundreds of thousands of young people with free access to football in their local area.


“The Premier League Kicks Cup regional tournaments will create opportunities for more than 1,400 young people across 89 professional football club community organisations across the football leagues to take part in competitive football, to make new friends, engage in positive activities and work together to develop their potential on and off the pitch.”

Mansfield Town will join eight Under-16 mixed and girls’ teams at the East Midlands Premier League Kicks regional tournament hosted by Derby County Community Trust


Teams and players will take part in a variety of workshops alongside their games with the aim of supporting wellbeing and building resilience. Local mental health advocates will be on site to support with signposting and guidance about continuing the conversation around mental health. Additional activities will be provided by live DJ and rap artists, with youth voice activities to capture the days events. 


In addition to providing young people with access to free football and sports activities, professional football club community organisations (CCOs) also provide additional year-round support through Premier League Kicks.


This includes offering mentoring, life-skills advice and access to opportunities such as volunteering and social action to help aid personal development.


Premier League Kicks Coordinator, Remi Luke, said: Premier league Kicks Cup is a fantastic event for us to take part in, with an opportunity for our Kicks participants to compete against other participants from local CCOs. We are looking forward to the event, with both mixed and girls' teams winning the fair play trophies last year giving us the opportunity to attend to the National final. This year we have a selection of boys and girls from across our Kick's sessions representing Mansfield Town and it will hopefully be another enjoyable tournament.”


Premier League Kicks began in 2006. Since then, more than 520,000 young people have participated in Premier League Kicks football and multi-sport sessions delivered by 90 Premier League, English Football League and National League sides. More than one million hours of sessions have been delivered across England and Wales.  

To date, the Premier League has invested more than £66 million in Premier League Kicks through the Premier League Charitable Fund.
