"Bravo, we really enjoyed ourselves"

International youth football tournament in Zwolle, the Netherlands: Hanze Trophy
Participating countries: 
Belgium Denmark France Germany Netherlands Ireland

Organisers vv SVI and ZAC are used to warm words, but the many accolades they received for the Hanze Trophy 2019 were really special. SVI and ZAC lay on a sports programme for their guests that is highly appreciated by the participants. Moreover, each year there is an attractive field sign up, with 5-6 nationalities represented. Aside from the fact that a visit to the charming centre of the Hanseatic city of Zwolle is definitely worthwhile, there is another bonus for participants: they can stay in holiday parks with lots of exciting, free attractions. Conclusion: teams who want to combine football matches with a stay in a great holiday hotspot should look no further than the Hanze Trophy.

Zwolle

In the centre of Zwolle (125,000 inhabitants), the city's rich history is encompassing. Located on the banks of the River Ijssel, Zwolle is an old trading city that was part of the medieval Hanseatic League. As you will see if you take a stroll through the attractive centuries-old centre, with splendid town houses, fortifications and canals, winding streets and a pleasant square around the big church. Despite its age, the city is full of life.

Walibi World Amusement Park

The Walibi World amusement park is paradise for the whole family. The highlight of the park is also the highest point in the park: Goliath, the mother of all roller coasters. At Walibi World, everything is higher, faster, bigger, more spectacular and more impressive. In short, Walibi World is an extraordinary world! And all of that only 30 kilometres from Zwolle.

MAC³PARK Stadium

The MAC³PARK stadium is the home of both the PEC Zwolle men's and women's team, both of which are currently playing in the Dutch premiership, the 'Eredivisie'. This multifunctional stadium can hold 13,250 supporters. This season, visitors once again have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the PEC Zwolle stadium.
