A perfect combination

International youth football tournament in Zwolle the Nederlands: IJssel Trophy
Participating countries:

The IJssel Cup is one of those no-frills international youth football tournaments that nevertheless still scores highly with the participants. The secret? A simple but effective programme that is executed with expert precision: a celebratory opening ceremony with a fanfare and a show, followed by a football frenzy with loads of matches. The approximately 100 volunteers make sure that the programme runs like clockwork. Participants don't just meet each other at the sports park - they all stay in a neighbouring holiday park surrounded by trees, which boasts attractions such as a disco, a cinema and an indoor and outdoor pool. In short: your schedule is filled to perfection during this tournament.

The centre, including the Gothic old city hall, is a very pleasant place to shop and go for night out. In the city you'll find hundreds of shops in all shapes and sizes, from large chains to small specialist shops. The area surrounding Zwolle offers plenty of natural beauty, such as the floodplains along the IJssel river.
