Premier League Primary Stars

Launched in 2017, Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of professional football to support pupils in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

In 2022, the programme celebrated its fifth anniversary.

Last year, 1,000 schools took part in national competitions, with U11 mixed and girls' tournaments culminating in a final at Watford FC's Vicarage Road.

The programme inspires children aged 5 to 11 to be active and develop important life skills with over 640 curriculum-linked activities.


This supports teachers in building their pupils' confidence in key areas, including PSHE, Physical Education, Maths and English.

More than 61,000 teachers have registered for free downloadable lesson plans and 84 per cent of primary schools in England and Wales have engaged in the programme.
