Australia's 2015 Asian Cup is already helping to drive learning in Australia's primary schools.  The Football-inspired education program is currently being piloted at 22 schools in Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and Queensland, and will be accessible online at no cost to every primary school in Australia from April 2014.

Teachers can find out more about the specific units of work and register their interest in the program by emailing: education@asiancup2015.com.au.

The Asian Cup 2015 educational resource uses Asian Cup football themes as a teaching aid in English, Mathematics, Art and Health and Physical Education.

It gives primary school children the opportunity to learn more about Australia's relationship with Asia and football.
