VE Day May Bank Holiday Weekend Thurs 7th - Sun 10th May 2020 (Both venues)

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.

And with this years NEW Bank Holiday date to mark VE day - Friday is a play day - you can make the most of the break and arrive on Thursday afternoon*!

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.

Referees at our Tournaments

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.

Tournament Qualification

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 website approximately 7 days prior to the start of the tournament, in the Schedules section. It is extremely important to check this information beforehand.

First Aid at Football Venues

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.
