International football tournament in Aalborg, Denmark: Aalborg City Cup

If you like international competitions, make sure you're at the Aalborg City Cup over Ascension. Few tournaments provide such a great international mix, even in the early rounds. With this well-balanced mix of nationalities, the organisers naturally have the chance to take a shot at reaching the top of the rankings with their tournament. But in order to go from zero to 300 teams within a couple of years, as an organiser you certainly have to have a little something extra about you. Add an incredible sports park into the mix, with 18 neat grass pitches right in the attractive city centre, and you'll understand why Aalborg is "the place to be" over Ascension.
