This league is growing every year & has been incredibly popular with 60 teams having entered in 2021-2022, which is amazing after the pandemic. The league has been designed to be easy to take part in with a focus on enabling your team to enjoy playing matches against your local schools teams.

The leagues take at local 5 secondary school central venues with matches played one night per month in September, October, November and March. They are split into Inspire and Excel leagues with Inspire being for Girls who are new to football and Excel being for more competent girls.

The winners of each of the 5 leagues will come together for a grand Manchester Primary Schools Girls Football Final in June.

Young Leaders from each of the host sites will officiate the matches. Our thanks go to the dedicated PE staff at each school venue for their time and expertise in preparing the leaders and managing the league nights.
