Premier League Enterprise Challenge

Premier League Enterprise Challenge

The Premier League Enterprise Challenge is an exciting national competition for young people in Years 9 and 10 who have already completed the Premier League Enterprise Core Programme, or are in the process of completing it. The competition has become an important milestone in the Premier League promotional diary and this year is again supported by the PL and Sport Relief.

Challenge aims:

  • To engage and inspire ‘marginalised’ groups of young people identified as underachieving or at risk of not reaching their full potential.
  • To increase awareness and understanding of business, enterprise and/or entrepreneurship, particularly in relation to the operations of a professional football club.
  • To improve enterprise and life skills in participating students.

How the Challenge works:

Challenge brief: The Premier League tasks students to work on a real brief.

Working with teams: Burnley FC in the Community staff deliver six hours of guided learning to help teams respond to the brief.

Club heats: Teams from each school compete against each other to deliver their response to the brief – Burnley FC in the Community selects one team to represent the club at the play-offs.

Regional play-offs: Selected teams from every Premier League club in the Northwest compete for a place at the final.

Final: The PL Enterprise Challenge winner is selected.

Who can take part?

Team size: Each team should consist of up to five participants from Year 9 or 10 and be in full-time learning.

Student profile: All participating students must have completed the Premier League Enterprise Core Programme, or be in the process of completing it.
