The EMJFL stage various cup competitions throughout the season.

The EMJFL ensure that all teams from ages U7s through to U10s participate in an end of season cup final extravaganza which is held at The Tameside Stadium on the main pitch. These finals prove very popular to all the children with everyone of them taking home some silver wear.

All in all the EMJFL host over 260 finals each year throughout April & May. As U7s to U11s are deemed as non competitive the EMJFL hold Cup grading tournaments throughout the season to ensure that teams compete against teams with a similar ability come the finals.

The FA Primary Cup
This Competition is open to all age groups and teams in the top half of divisions

The FA Challenge Cup

The JFC Sports Cup
Every age group and division have their own JFC Sports Cup

The Paul Hett Trophy Cup

Any team can only participate in one Cup Final, this is to ensure that one team does not win every cup available so giving others an equal chance. Any team from age groups U7s to U10s that do not reach a cup final of the above competitions, are then selected to participate in other cup finals, these are graded in a manner which places them with teams of similar ability.
