THE Premier League Enterprise Challenge is a national competition with 30 Premier League and Football League Clubs participating.
The competition is launched in September with selected schools in the city.
A team from each school works to produce a business idea to meet the challenge set by Premier League Executive Chairman Richard Scudamore. The teams are then invited to the stadium to take part in a club heat where they pitch their idea to a panel of Stoke City judges.
The winning team then goes on to represent Stoke City FC in the regional play-off in competition with four other clubs for the right to compete in the final in London.
The challenge is open to students that have completed or are currently participating in the Premier League Enterprise Core Programme.
In 2016, teams from Blythe Bridge High School, Biddulph High School and St Thomas More Catholic Academy competed at the club heat for the right to represent the club. St Thomas More were declared winners and went on to represent the club brilliantly against Leicester City, Watford, Swansea and Sunderland in regional play-off.
