Play at Parc des Princes

The Europa Cup provides your team with the unique experience of playing at Parc des Princes. The 48,000-seater stadium is home to some of the World’s greatest players.

7v7 Tournament

Your team will arrive at Parc des Princes entering through the official Red Carpet Players’ Entrance for registration ahead of your first match. 

Each team will play a total of 60 minutes on the main pitch for all tournament matches (5 matches x 12 minutes), regardless of where they finish in the tournament.

The format of the tournament will be 3 group games, 1 semi-final, 1 final. 

U7- U14 age groups will play 7v7 for all matches and U15/16 will play 6v6 for all matches.

In each age group, we will aim to reserve a place for local French teams to allow your team to experience playing against foreign opposition (if this is not possible, we can share some contacts of local teams so you can arrange a friendly/training session!). All teams will participate in a pitchside medal ceremony and each player will receive a special medal at the end of the tournament.

This tournament is open to boys & girls teams of ALL ABILITIES (grassroots teams are welcome)!

*Number of teams per age group is subject to demand
