The world's biggest football tournament for children aged 10 to 12





In England, Danone have partnered with the English Schools’ Football Association to run the Danone Nations Cup with children under the age of 11. The tournament aims to bring Danone’s health mission to life by encouraging kids to have an active lifestyle and follow in the footsteps of great sportsmen, such as the tournament’s global ambassador: Zinedine Zidane.

Every year around 3,000 primary schools compete in the U11 national tournaments which culminate with the Danone Nations Cup England Final. The ultimate winning team represents England at the Danone Nations Cup World Final, an international football tournament involving children from 32 countries around the world!
