Football and cricket come together to launch a new competition – Roar! for Diversity

By Premier League Primary Stars · Thu 28 November 2019

We are thrilled to announce that Premier League Primary Stars has joined forces with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to create exciting curriculum-linked resources and a brand new competition on the power of diversity in teams. 


Through their partnership, Premier League Primary Stars and the ECB aim to demonstrate the positive power of sport and give young people a voice on the topics that matter to them.

The Roar! for Diversity resources inspire pupils to respect and value individual differences and to recognise that diversity within a team helps to make it stronger.

To enter the Roar! for Diversity competition, pupils need to work together to create an advert to celebrate diversity in teams and show others just how important it is. Pupils’ adverts can be as creative as they like – they may wish to do a poster, a poem, an artwork, a storyboard for a short film or any other idea they choose! Download our curriculum-linked resource pack to help pupils on their way.

Watch the film above to find out more about what pupils need to do to enter.

The competition is open from Thursday 21 November 2019 until Friday 14 February 2020 and the winning team will receive exciting prizes, such as match tickets, a trophy visit to their school and the opportunity to work with designers to bring their winning advert to life.

So find out more about the competition and empower your pupils to ‘Roar!’ for Diversity.

Visit the Chance to Shine website to discover a range of free curriculum-linked resources on cricket, which can be used in Physical Education as well as in core curriculum lessons. Note that Chance to Shine is the ECB's charitable partner and supports the ECB to deliver Roar! for Diversity.
