Latest news regarding 2019 edition of the Inter-services Football Tournament.
The clock is ticking and the 2019 edition of the Inter-services Football Tournament is upon us! A total number of 14 teams from all parts of the Organisation have said yes to a day of sport, fun, food and drinks.
The tournament is taking place on the new football pitches at Wacken l'Ill des sports (just behind the Court). The first match kicks off at 10.00 am (it is recommended to be there at 9.30 am), there will be a lunch break from 12.30 to 14.00 pm and the champion will be crowned at 17 pm.
As in the previous tournament editions, in addition to the cups for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place there will be a special Sasha Gerasimenko Fair Play Cup awarded to the team and their supporters who can best embody a joyful spirit and fair play.
But the day is not only about football. There will be plenty of other activities and delicious food and drinks will be sold throughout the day by different local vendors (cash payment only!). The little ones (of all ages) will surely get busy as there will be a program with activities for children.
As said before, the day is much more than celebrating football and you don’t even have to love football to be part of the day – every team needs its supporters, artists, jugglers, musicians, poets and the tournament is a unique opportunity for promoting team spirit, in a festive and sporty atmosphere!
Last but not least, a big thank you to ASCE, Amicale of the Council of Europe and Société Générale for making it possible to organize the event.
PS - It is still possible to be part of this wonderfull event! If you want to participate and have not yet found a team please contact Tiago Goncalves and Ismail Rabie and we will find a team for you!
