Amfora Cup

08 - 09 June 2019
, Porec & Umag

It's simply magical.

International youth football tournament in Porec, Croatia: Amfora Cup

Sun, sea, pine forests: the Amfora Cup is the right place for teams looking for a tournament in a relaxed environment! The sports and holiday resort Zelena Laguna is located near the seaside resort of Porec. This is where many professional teams, and previously even the national Croatian team, come for their annual training camp. During Pentecost, the sports complex becomes the main location for the Amfora Cup and is fully reserved for the youth of Europe. However, do not miss visiting  the beautiful 2000 year-old city of Porec, just a bit further. Very highly recommended.

Umag

The seaside resort of Umag (13,000 inhabitants) is the first city you will reach when approaching Istria from western Europe, about 40 kilometres from Trieste (IT).  If you ask someone who lives in Croatia what their first association is with Umag, they’ll probably say the ATP Croatia Open tournament, which has been held for nearly 30 years at Stella Maris Resort tennis centre. But it’s not all about tennis. Umag and its residents simply love sports and active lifestyles.Thanks to its ideal location on the Adriatic, the Mediterranean climate and the impressive sports infrastructure, tournaments and sporting events take place all year round all accompanied by world-class accommodation in beautiful locations.

Istria

Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea and the most western province of Croatia. Istria boasts at least 445 kilometres of rocky coastline, making it a popular holiday spot for sun worshippers! The towns of Pula, Poreč and Umag are the most noteworthy tourist destinations. Istria has a pristine natural landscape with lakes and waterfalls, a rich centuries-old culture and hospitable people.

Aquacolors Poreč Water Park

Aquacolors Poreč is the largest water park in Croatia - for everyone from 0 to 100. 12 extra-long slides are sure to satisfy even the biggest water freaks. For families with small children, there is a large children's pool with all kinds of water activities, as well as several long family slides. Relax during a gentle swim around the 500m-long lazy river or in the large wave pool.
