International youth football tournament Hameln Germany: Rattenfänger Trophy
Participating countries: 
Belgium Denmark Germany Netherlands

To football fans, this international youth football tournament is probably better known than the Pied Piper of the classical fairytale. No wonder, because the Rattenfanger Trophy has been amongst the best-rated tournaments in Germany for over ten years. Participants get plenty of coverage from the local press. Your goal might even be pictured in the newspaper! One of the tournament’s highlights is the players’ party, but we should not forget the finals themselves, which are played in the Weserbergland Stadium, used in 2006 as a training base by World Cup finalists France! This international youth football tournament is a true fairytale!
