International youth football tournament Barcelona Spain: Copa Costa Brava

Do you want to give your team a truly unforgettable experience? Costa Brava! The name alone is enough to get you in the holiday mood. But for football fans, it has a whole other attraction: FC Barcelona. Every year, the popular coast to the north of Barcelona attracts some 1000 teams from all over Europe and the USA. The sun and beautiful beaches, Barcelona and the magical sounds rising from the Camp Nou stadium have an almost magnetic effect on football fans. Over Easter, Euro-Sportring adds its own special element - 
the Copa Costa Brava - to the mix.

Costa Brava/Costa Maresme

The Costa Brava and Costa Maresme are among the most popular coastal areas of Spain. This area, north of Barcelona, is actually one of the most popular coastlines in Europe. In particular, between the towns of Calella and Lloret de Mar you'll find miles of beautiful sandy beaches and boulevards dotted with cafés, clubs and restaurants. Every spot along the coast, from Lloret de Mar to Santa Susanna of Malgrat de Mar, has its own unique charm and attractions.

Barcelona

Barcelona is somewhere you simply have to see. This unique city has a number of extraordinary attractions. The Sagrada Familia is one of the most bizarre and characteristic buildings in the city. This cathedral has been under construction since 1882. The Plaza de Catalunya and las Ramblas are also special meeting points, with lots of shops, restaurants and terraces. Other beautiful areas include the Gothic quarter, with its narrow, picturesque alleyways; Montjuic hill, the location of the Olympic Park and with a stunning view over the city and sea. And last but not least,don't miss out on a trip to Park Guell.

FC Barcelona, Camp Nou Stadium

A visit to Camp Nou  stadium is definitely worth the effort. With 110,000 seats it's the largest stadium in Europe. And of course, as a football fan, there's no getting away from FC Barcelona. For the people of Catalonia, ‘Barça’ is more than just a football club. Barcelona unites all Catalonians!

 

Organiser

Euro-Sportring has been active in Spain since the 1960s. Back then, they organised meetings between clubs and friendly matches. Euro-Sportring now organises annual tournaments that are attended by some 1,000 teams from 13 nations. The Copa Costa Brava is a joint project with the Catalan Football Association, which provides referees, amongst other things.
