“A wonderful atmosphere at the park and optimum guidance of the organiser: everyone felt right at home at the Berlin Cup”, according to one of the participants of the international youth football touranment in 2013. The sophisticated competition programme is really a great combination of sports and leisure time, as there is also time to explore Berlin’s attractions.
