International youth football tournament in Zwolle the Nederlands: IJssel Trophy

The IJssel Cup is one of those no-frills international youth football tournaments that nevertheless still scores highly with the participants. The secret? A simple but effective programme that is executed with expert precision: a celebratory opening ceremony with a fanfare and a show, followed by a football frenzy with loads of matches. The approximately 100 volunteers make sure that the programme runs like clockwork. Participants don't just meet each other at the sports park - they all stay in a neighbouring holiday park surrounded by trees, which boasts attractions such as a disco, a cinema and an indoor and outdoor pool. In short: your schedule is filled to perfection during this tournament.
