IberCup Tournaments

The IberCup is currently one of the most important World Youth Football/Soccer Tournaments in the world. Since the first edition, more than 100 countries have been represented in our competitions.

Every year, more than 50.000 players, divided in boys and girls categories, participate in our tournaments in different locations, with a unique opportunity to face teams from all over the world.

IberCup creates the possibility of different interactions inside and outside the field with fantastic experiences, and this makes IberCup one of the most recognized Youth Football Competitions in the world.

One of our goals is to create a positive experience through a well-organized competition, where players have the opportunity to compete with a high level of organization and expose themselves to a huge network of services in the football environment, ensuring that everyone can overcome their technical qualities and knowledge through IberCup tournaments around the world.

IberCup takes place in different locations: check all locations on our site.

Registrations

IberCup is played following FIFA’s football rules. The limit for team’s applications is 32 teams in each age category. If the maximum enrollment of teams is reached before the deadline for registrations, registrations will close before the scheduled date.

After you submit your application, which will be evaluated by our organization, we will decide if your application is accepted.

Team's participation is only assured after all payments are confirmed. 

Note that in previous editions the tournament has not been able to accept all teams that wished to enter.

 

Who May Participate

All clubs, which are members of their FIFA affiliated national associations, are welcome to participate in the IberCup. In countries where football is operated by the schools we also allow teams affiliated by their school football association.

 

Number of Teams in the Tournament

It is our goal that all teams that wish to take part in the IberCup should be able to do so. But please note that, during the last couple of years, the tournament has not been able to accept all teams that wished to enter.

The teams paying their entry fees first will be given priority. The team is officially registered only after this first entry payment.


Additionally, most hotels are full 6 months before the competition starts, so don’t take too long to make your decision, accommodation options close early. 

A club can register automatically a maximum of two (2) teams per category (more than two must be approved by the organization).

 

Level of the Teams

When participating in the Holiday Tournaments, the teams will be able to play against teams from all over the world, and the level will increase while you are progressing through the different stages of the competition.
