The UK’s Biggest Grassroots Football Festival!

If you’re looking to make this season one to remember, look no further. With 1200 grassroots teams participating, ESF 2022 is the biggest youth football festival of its kind in the UK – there’s nowhere better to take your team on an unforgettable end of season tour.

ESF is a series of professionally organised youth football festivals that bring grassroots teams of all abilities together for a fantastic weekend of football and fun at Butlin’s & Haven. ESF 2022 then culminates with our Champion of Champions event, the ESF Grand Finale at St George’s Park!
