Glasgow City Cup – join in the action!

Glasgow City Cup logoFancy testing yourselves against some of the best youth football teams in Scotland and beyond?

Well this summer you have the chance… it’s the Glasgow City Cup!

Since its launch in 2003, the Glasgow City Cup has become one of the biggest and best amateur football tournaments in the UK.  So big now, in fact, that this year’s Cup will take place over two weekends of fantastic football action.

It all kicks off on the weekend of 30 July – 1 August with all the budding young stars coming together for a Soccer Sevens Festival and Under 12s non-competetive 11-a- sides, while the main tournament for under 13s and upwards takes place on 6-8 August.

Soccer Sevens / Under 12s Festival (30 July – 1 August)

All teams are guaranteed four games over the two days (six games in the Soccer Sevens festival), while there will be plenty more going on with face painting, stalls, a tournament photographer plus appearances by sports and TV personalities.

There won’t be any trophies up for grabs, but every player will receive a memento of the event.  Entry fee is £70 per team, which includes your Scottish Youth Football Association (SYFA) Permit if applied for before 16 July.

For the under 12s, its a great pre-season warm up and an ideal way to prepare your team for their first season of 11 a side football.

Under 13s to under 21s competition (6-8 August)

Things heat up on the second weekend of the Glasgow City Cup, with competitive tournaments taking place for every age group from under 13s right up to under 21s.

Each team entering will get a minimum of four games. Entry costs £170 for SYFA-registered teams and £360 for non-SYFA teams.

Whatever your age, it’s a high-calibre tournament and, with 20 teams taking part at most age groups – including entrants from Wales, Northen Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – it’s not easy to win!

Over 160 teams have applied to play in the tournament so far and places are limited, so if you want to get involved we recommend that you act fast.

    Perhaps there are those of you who may wish to consider bringing a team or two over to South Africa, Cape Town in the near future.
