The tournament itself

The International Tournament is organized by G.S.V.V. The Knickerbockers. The Knickerbockers is a students’ football club in Groningen with about 600 members (both men and women) and is associated with the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB).

Both men and women are invited to participate in the tournament. In the past editions there were around 30 to 40 teams from all over Europe, most of them from The Netherlands, Germany and France. The men play 11 versus 11 on a normal sized pitch. The women play 7 versus 7 on half a pitch with smaller goals. Matches last 10 to 15 minutes.

Besides the games there is a lot of entertainment. We start Friday with two opening games and after that a band will play live music. If you’re not done with partying yet, a DJ will be playing songs until sunrise.

Saturday = matchday. After you enjoyed your breakfast there are matches to play. You will compete against other teams. Next to the matches there is a lot of entertainment. You can get a drink at the Buitenbar, get a haircut (last year), enjoy some delicious food and dance on some nice live music. The matches will end around 18 o’clock. After the matches a different band will light up the evening and you can celebrate your victory.

Sunday after breakfast, you can get ready for take-off. On your way home we hope you look back on an epic weekend.

*Important notice*: We want this tournament to be a good combination of football and fun. So, if you are looking for the most serious football tournament there is, this might not be your tournament. But if you’re looking for the best weekend of your life combining football and fun, this is the tournament for you!
