U14 School League

The McDonald's Under14 School's League is a 2010 FIFA World Cup ™ legacy project that is passionate about developing dreams. The legacy initiative is committed to the upliftment of children in South Africa

The sport of football epitomises our core values of fun, teamwork, integrity, learning and a balanced, active lifestyle. The Departments of Basic Education and Sports and Recreation have launched the Magnificent Wednesdays campaign, which seeks to have all school children participating in sport. We fully support this initiative because a healthy body means a healthy mind, and children who take part in sport have a better chance of doing well in class.


The league kicked off in 2010 and since then has reached 3000 schools and over 126 000 children. This year’s competition will once again be in search of the nation’s top Under14 team. View the game fixtures here.

We always strive to reach out to communities and enrich the lives of children throughout South Africa. We will continue to create platforms that allow children to hone their skills and inspire them to reach their full potential in life.
