One thing is for sure at the Amsterdam Tournament: your team is in good company. Since FC Abcoude took on the organisation of the tournament a few years ago, it has developed into the largest senior tournament in the Amsterdam region in no time. Organiser FC Abcoude has almost 60 teams and a thousand members. During a normal weekend it is therefore very busy at the sports park, even more so when more than 1,000 international guests from seven countries visit. The terrace is thus properly filled and the BBQ works overtime.
