Organiser

The Brabant Boys Cup is organised by SV Avanti '31 and RKSV Schijndel, both from Schijndel (24,000 inhabitants) near Den Bosch. The two clubs have a total of almost 2,000 members.

Sport facillity

The Brabant Boys Cup is played at two sports grounds in Schijndel. The Avanti '31 park is part of a recreational area with a playfully decorated swimming pool. This venue has five pitches and a beautiful clubhouse with a canteen and terrace. The RKSV Schijndel park has seven pitches, including a large grandstand at the main field. It also has a large clubhouse with a canteen and terrace. During the tournament, the sports grounds are festively organised with tents and various points of sale.

Den Bosch

Den Bosch is known in the Netherlands for its beautiful historic centre around the monumental St. John's Cathedral. In fact, the entire city centre is one large shopping centre: everywhere, streets are filled with fine shops and restaurants. For entertainment and café terraces, head to the Market in the heart of the city centre. 

Aquafun Sportiom

Aquafun is a large, tropical pool paradise opposite the FC Den Bosch stadium. Here, you'll find loads of water-based fun on the slides and in the rapids. In the Sportiom visitors can also enjoy the Ice-Fun Centre, laser tag and a gym.
