Silloth on Solway, Cumbria

Easter Holidays Friday 8th April - Monday 11th April 2022
May Day Bank Holiday Weekend Friday 29th April - Monday 2nd May 2022

The Lake District Championship is held in one of the most beautiful corners of England and we believe and provides the perfect base for one of the best tournaments in the North West of England.  A combination of excellent holiday parks, breathtaking scenery and a superb football venue are sure to make demand high.

The Cumbrian coast stretches out on one side, while the majestic Lake District National Park spreads inland on the other. When not playing football you are ideally situated for exploring the Northern Lakes and Hadrian’s Wall.

The tournament attracts teams from all over the UK with many entries coming from England, Scotland and Wales.  So don't delay - contact us now and give your team a football tour to remember.

Tour Highlights

  • Choice of 2 fantastic holiday parks
  • Breathtaking scenery
  • Stones throw from the Lake District

  • Excellent football venue at Silloth Rugby Club.


I would just like to congratulate all the team at R&T tours on providing an amazing tournament at the Lakes this year. We will definitely be returning!

We have built up a nucleus of quality referees that look forward to attending our events; many have been with us since our UK tournaments began. We will provide qualified referees throughout the competition, as well as qualified assistant referees for the finals. You will therefore be asked to put forward a volunteer assistant referee for the early round matches.


In order to qualify for our tournaments, your team must be affiliated to a County or Schools FA. We DO NOT allow Representative, Football Academy, or Schools of Excellence teams to enter. However, individual players from such teams are allowed as 'guest players' within teams who are eligible to enter the tournament.


Football schedules, location of pitches, and all tournament information will be displayed on our score centre approximately 7 days prior to the start of the tournament. It is extremely important to check this information beforehand.


Injuries unfortunately can happen, and when they do it is essential to have adequate first aid cover. We provide excellent first aid cover at all football venues using the services of organisations such as St Johns Ambulance, Red Cross or other qualified medics.


We do not accept dogs at any of our UK tournaments.
