With a history going back over 25 years, the Lommel Trophy is a familiar name on the Euro-Sportring programme. The tournament takes place in the popular border region of the Netherlands, which alternates between forest, farmland and friendly villages, but is also home to fanatical footballers, for instance in Kattenbos/Lommel and Neerpelt.

The Lommel Trophy is organised by KFC Kattenbos Sport and Esperanza. The town of Lommel and many volunteers support the two clubs in the organisation of this international youth football tournament.

The Lommel Trophy takes place at two locations around Lommel: in the Kattenbos district and in Neerpelt. The KFC Kattenbos Sport grounds are hidden in a forest and features four fields (main field with grandstand) and a cosy clubhouse with a terrace. The KV Esperanza Pelt sports park in Neerpelt has five fields with an impressive grandstand on the main field. Plus, a nice clubhouse with a large canteen.

Lommel

Lommel (33,000 inhabitants) is nestled in rural surroundings near the border of the Netherlands and just 20 kilometres from Eindhoven. The city is surrounded by natural and recreational areas which are highly popular among tourists. A social atmosphere and entertainment can be found in the centre, near the impressive Church of Saint-Peter-in-Chains. The city has plenty of restaurants, hotels and shops to choose from. The tournament is held a few kilometres outside of the centre. 

 

Oostappen Vakantiepark Blauwe Meer
Mobilehome

Sporty young guests will be challenged with some tough choices here: a swim in the brand new swimming paradise with its exhilarating slide and wide range of water attractions, kicking a ball on the football field, or visiting the beach at Blauwe Meer. And of course there’s also the international football for the cup! Although Vakantiepark Blauwe Meer, near Lommel, may not be the most luxurious of resorts, it more than makes up for that in the form of sheer holiday pleasure.
