Over 1,200 teams. More than 40,000 people.

ESF Festivals of Football are the provided of the biggest youth tournament in the UK! Taking over award-winning venues – including Butlins Minehead, Bognor Regis and Skegness – ESF is huge!

Grassroots football is at the heart of the game and for the past three years Mitre have been the Official Partner of ESF – which really helps aid and develop players, whilst all being played in a fun environment and family friendly venue. ESF and Mitre have similar values – they’re aligned to supporting all ages, all genders and all abilities. And that’s why in 2017 we’ve announced a new partnership which will see us continue to support youth football within the UK through supplying footballs and thousands of pieces of kit to players.

The tournaments aren’t just made special by the well run tournaments. It’s a true family weekend, with activities and entertainment when the football ends, and an added bonus at the end of the weekend with a special awards ceremony. The awards ceremony consists of several awards for competition winners, the Mitre fair-play award and the Golden Goal award – all presented by celebrity players.


Every moment at ESF is #madewithmitre and if you’re keen to get involved you can visit their website to find out more here.
