For potentially that last time in 5 years before stadium renovations commence, take your U7-16 youth team on a tour of a lifetime to play inside FC Barcelona’s 98,000 seater stadium
The Europa Cup is the world’s most exciting international youth football tournament.
Day 1 – Group Matches
Your team will play 3 x group matches which will determine the group standings. There will be between 4-12 teams in each age group. Based on your position, you will then be placed in either the Cup, Plate or Shield competition. Your team will play at a Municipal venue in the town of Salou on Day 1 to give you the experience of playing at authentic Spanish football facilities.
Day 2 – Final Matches
Every team will then play a Semi Final and either a 3rd place play-off or Final. Our system ensures all teams play the same number of matches – 5 in total, whether they win, lose or draw. All matches are 15 minutes in duration. Your team will play their final matches on the pitch along with a special medal ceremony inside Camp Nou.
Please note, U15/16 age groups will play 6v6 for all matches with a maximum squad size of 12 players.
This tournament is open to boys & girls teams of ALL ABILITIES!
The Europa Cup is a truly international tournament. In previous years, we have had teams participate from countries including England, Spain, France, Denmark, Zambia, India, Malaysia, Haiti & more.
Playing INSIDE the Nou Camp is something that will live with us forever. We come back home with incredible memories and loads of new friends. A true celebration of the beautiful game. Thank you
Playing on the Home Ground of the Benfica Football Club in Lisbon, Portugal and walking out through the tunnel was an experience the SSE U12s will keep with themselves for quite sometime. #Whendreamscometrue
Can’t recommend The Europa Cup highly enough! If your boy/girl loves football they can live out their dreams – playing & scoring at stadiums like the Nou Camp. Thanks to them this is a moment Theo will never forget!
