Ipswich Town Shield




Supporting schools and School Game Organisers in their tournaments is key for us; it allows children to represent the school and apply their learning in a competitive setting. Our schools team will be with you every step of the way from learning the rules to developing techniques and strategies and finally the tournament itself.

On top of pre-arranged tournaments, we also run our own football tournaments such as the nationally recognised EFL Kids/Girls Cup! Where one lucky school will go on to represent ITFC regionally and hopefully beyond.

More information:

We also host tournaments for Partner Organisations at Portman Road at no extra cost.

Interested? Contact Mike Phillips, Schools Development Manager at mike.phillips@itfc.co.uk to find out more!

"Mike is great with helping us organise venues for finals whether that be on the astro at Portman Road or Newmarket. In March we’ve got Sports Relief coming up. He’s hopefully going to get Bluey and Crazy down. That’ll help add a little bit of spice to it."
