International youth football tournament in Porec & Umag, Croatia: Istra Cup
Participating countries: 
Czech Republic France Germany Italy Netherlands Poland Slovenia Switzerland

Sun, sea, pine forests: the Istra 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 Easter, the sports complex becomes the main location for the Istra 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.
