School Games competition will rival US system

Up to 12,000 schools will take part in the new School Games competition which the government hopes will replicate the US system of bolstering competitive sport in schools. The three levels of competition range from class versus class, school versus school and then county or city-wide sports festivals. These lead up to the finals at the Olympic Park from May 6th -9th and so far 24,000 out of 30,000 tickets to the finals have been sold since going on sale in January.
