Adopt a Nation
Once we know which nations will face each other after the Final Draw on 5 April, we will be encouraging schools to 'adopt a nation' and get behind one of the teams you will be watching. Pupils will be able to learn more about the nation's culture and be in with a chance of hosting a visit from your adopted nation's team once they have arrived in England.
Champions Flag Competition
The Champions Flag competition is designed to be an engaging, fun and creative way for all young people to enjoy the tournament. Pupils are invited to simply design their own Champions Flag. The winning designs will be selected and recreated as giant flags and displayed at stadiums throughout the tournament. All our winners will receive special recognition on the pitch at half-time. And if that's not enough, we will also lay on free coach travel for the winner's school as well as free match tickets for every design submitted by the school. The competition closing date is Friday 30 March. CLICK HERE for more details and the flag template/school entry form.
