Enjoy the FIFA World Cup 2022 – join in with the YST #HalfTimeChallenge

Take a look at YST’s #HalfTimeChallenge, designed to get families active and having fun during half-time breaks across the FIFA World Cup!

As we all start to trim back on spending for sports clubs amid a cost-of-living crisis and at a time when less than half of young people currently meet the Chief Medical Officer’s recommended daily activity level of 60 minutes, YST are launching a new social media competition which aims to inspire families to play together via a series of fun football based challenges that can even be done in the comfort of their living room. 

How to enter

  • The first on 21 November which is when the Home Countries play their first matches
  • The second on 03 December when the knock-out stages begin
  • The third on 13 December – the day of the semi-finals.

The videos will test families’ football skills with challenges such as nearest to the pin, ‘keepy uppies’ and dribbling accuracy.

At each stage you can upload photos and videos of yourself and your family participating in the challenges, using the hashtag #HalfTimeChallenge and tagging @YouthSportTrust for a chance to WIN one of three Adidas Al Rihla footballs. The official match ball of FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
