2018 U17 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 and we know the Midlands and Yorkshire will give the 16 competing teams a warm welcome. 

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. 

To enter a team, clubs can register their interest before Sunday 18 March by clicking here.
