SPAR FAI Primary School 5 a sides

The SPAR FAI Primary School 5s is the biggest competition in primary schools’ soccer. The programme involved 24,000 students last year with over 1,200 schools participating. The competition has been running since the mid 1990s and the programme promises to be bigger and better this year.

Local competitions will begin at the end of February or early March with Regional qualifiers taking place in April. The Provincial Finals will take place in early and mid-May while the National Finals will be held on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 in the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.

There are six sections to cater for all school sizes, and while FAI Schools encourage boys and girls to play on the same team, they do have separate competitions for girls’ schools.
