Over the period of lockdown, many of us have watched the ePremier League Invitational, which has seen Premier League players represent their club in an EA Sports FIFA 20 online competition.

More recently, young people from our weekly Premier League Kicks sessions have been given the opportunity to try their hand in the competition as the Premier League hosted the Stay at Home Cup.

Over 800 players from across the country represented their club from the comfort of their own sofa in either the 13-15 or the 16-18 age group.

Across two nights, players battled it out to win their spot in the final, which was played earlier this month.

Head of community, Steve Cuss, spoke fondly about the competition: “We were delighted to be part of the Premier League Stay at Home Cup, which saw a number of our Premier League Kicks participants take part and enjoy playing FIFA against those from other community programmes across the country.

“We are very much looking forward to developing this area of work, providing further opportunities for all to take part.”
