Hundreds of football-based events have been organized to take place from June 12, the day of England’s first World Cup match against the USA, as part of England Football Day.

The day, which was co-ordinated by the Football Association, aimed to get more children and adults involved with playing and coaching football through 267 football ‘festivals’ being held around the country.

Events ranging from mini-World Cup tournaments to coaching taster sessions are planned, and many of the festivals will round off the day by screening the England match.

England manager Fabio Capello said: "I’m sure England Football Day will be a positive experience for the whole country.

"It’s a great opportunity for players, children and families to get involved in football and inspire a new generation."
