There are few places in the world where more than 100 teams play within a radius of 500 metres on a weekly basis. Add to that the 15,000 visitors to the state-of-the-art MAC³PARK stadium of Dutch eredivisie club PEC Zwolle, and it is clear that in east Zwolle, football really is king. Naturally, there is also an international tournament here, the annual Zwolle International Cup organised by Be Quick '28 and neighbouring VV Berkum. The tournament takes place on 10 pitches around two pleasant and lively canteens, because, naturally, the locals want to come and watch.

Zwolle

The centuries-old centre of the Hanseatic city of Zwolle (125,000 inhabitants) contains beautiful town houses, fortifications, canals and a vibrant city centre. The fantastic MAC³PARK Stadion, which is home to top side PEC Zwolle, is just two kilometres outside the city. The Zwolle International Cup is held at a sports park next to the MAC³PARK Stadion.

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.
