The Rimini tournaments have been a favorite meeting point for teams from all over Europe for more than twenty years. Every year, hundreds of teams take part in these classics on the Adriatic coast. This success has not come unearned: the organisers have made sure of it by putting on an excellent tournament for its guests, year in and year out. The Trofeo d'Italia is primarily a feast for the future champions - an exciting first introduction to a major event at a beautiful location. The sports grounds of the organiser, Tropical Coriano, are a perfect place for precisely those teams.
Football Club AC Tropical Coriano has existed for over forty years and has 400 members. The first team plays in the higher division of the regional competition.
The tournament will be played at various locations close to the hotels where the teams stay. The main venue is the Tropical Coriano sports park with 4 pitches. The finals are played in the stadium of AC Tropical Coriano and professional club AC Rimini.
Rimini (130,000 residents) is the largest Italian resort on the Adriatic coast. The city has two different faces. In the western part of the city is the old centre with Roman monuments, such as the Arch of Augustus, the Tiberius bridge and the medieval castle of Malatesta. In the eastern part, you will find the attractive new city with 15 kilometres of beautiful beaches and a variety of entertainment. Along the Lungomare (boulevard) are numerous little bars, discos and open air venues. Just behind the boulevard is the most famous shopping street, the Viale Vespucci.
20 kilometres inwards from Rimini is the small state of San Marino, close to the Alps. The capital is also called San Marino. In this city you'll find three castles, but the centre is also popular for its many shops, bars, pizzerias and restaurants.
Mirabilandia amusement park is 25 kilometres to the north of Rimini. The beautiful green park boasts many attractions, spread across seven areas. Each area has its own small shops, restaurants and ice cream cafes. At Mirabilandia you only have to pay a single entry price for all attractions. There are several rollercoasters, a log flume and a range of shows. A great day out for all the family. Please note: only suitable for a full day excursion.
