EIGHT CHALLENGERS, ONE WINNER..
The Almere Challenge Event is a prestigious international youth tournament organised by Almere City FC. The tournament is hitting it’s second edition in August 2019 and is for players born in or after the year 2001. Eight football clubs from both the Netherlands and abroad are taking part in the challenge. Young talent from well-established clubs will get the chance to show off their skills on the pitch. The first edition last year was won by FC Utrecht U19 and they will defend their crown in this year’s edition.
As part of the tournament, young people from Almere and beyond will be invited to take part in FIFA skill games. The winners will have a chance to win a football traineeship at the Almere City Football Academy.
