Sun, sea, pine forests: the Amfora Cup is the right place for teams looking for a tournament in a relaxed environment! The sports and holiday resort Zelena Laguna is located near the seaside resort of Porec. This is where many professional teams, and previously even the national Croatian team, come for their annual training camp. During Pentecost, the sports complex becomes the main location for the Amfora Cup and is fully reserved for the youth of Europe. However, do not miss visiting the beautiful 2000 year-old city of Porec, just a bit further. Very highly recommended.
The seaside resort of Poreč (12,000 inhabitants) is situated on the west coast of Istria, about 60 kilometres from Trieste (IT). Thanks to its ideal location on the Adriatic, the Mediterranean climate, the impressive monuments in the attractive centre and the beautiful promenade, the city has grown into a famous tourist attraction. Despite its popularity, Porec has remained a friendly city with restaurants and cafés around the old harbour.
Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea and the most western province of Croatia. Istria boasts at least 445 kilometres of rocky coastline, making it a popular holiday spot for sun worshippers! The towns of Pula, Poreč and Umag are the most noteworthy tourist destinations. Istria has a pristine natural landscape with lakes and waterfalls, a rich centuries-old culture and hospitable people.
The Amfora Cup is organised by NK Veli Vrh in collaboration with the Istrian Football Association and the community of Poreč.
The Amfora Cup is played at three locations in Poreč: the Zelana Laguna sports park, with 4 pitches, and the NK Funtana pitch in the centre of Poreč. The finals are played in the Zelena Laguna stadium. Both venues have changing rooms and a canteen.
