We return to Portugal for our 9th tournament in the Algarve on the 6th June weekend. The tournament will have both an "Open Age" tournament and a "Veterans" tournament all on the same day and  at the same venue.

The Algarve has been one of our most popular events over the years and was included in our very first tour season back in 2007. Since then the beaches, hotel pool, Albufeira strip and of course our football venue has been a well trodden stamping ground for touring teams and stag weekends alike.

If you are looking for a long weekend where you can chill out by the pool, on the Mallorca beaches either side of a first class 5-a-side football tournament before heading out on the town with the great nightlife that Magaluf and Palma Nova have to offer then the Mallorca Tournament is YOUR tournament.

The Mallorca Tournament made a sensational debut in 2011. Since then, the 2012, 2013 and 2014 tournaments became our fastest-selling tournament in each of the last three years. It is therefore no surprise that, without a moment's hesitation, Mallorca was straight back in the schedule for 2015. .

If a long weekend is not long enough then we have some 7 night week specials to turn it into a real lads holiday.

Following over 20 successful tournaments in Albufeira (Algarve), Barcelona, Mallorca and Valencia over the last few years it is clear to see you love your football set against a backdrop of sun, beach, sea, good climate and not to mention a cracking nightlife. It is therefore no surprise to see Lisbon become our latest sun destination on the tournament calendar and become our 5th destination on the Iberian peninsular.

Lisbon's nightlife is generally considered to be amongst the best in Europe. The night in Lisbon starts at sunset and goes on until dawn - definitely not to be missed. The nightlife is concentrated around the Barrio Alto area and more recently the emerging Docas area - both are superb.

Bratislava was welcomed to the eurofootballfives.com party as a brand new destination in 2014 and it's straight back into the schedules for 2015.

Following extensive experience in Budapest, Krakow and Prague it is obvious it was only a matter of time before Bratislava earned its chance to shine in our schedules. Bratislava has a great nightlife and plenty of options for your nights out - from pubs for a few cheeky ones to good bars/clubs to party the whole night away. There is something for everyone. Nightlife is cheap compared to Western European standards so you get great value.

Beyond this Bratislava is a great looking city (not just the stunning women) with plenty to offer from a sightseeing perspective - a beautiful medieval city with winding narrow streets and castle overlooking the Danube. The two main squares (Hlavne namestie and Hviezdoslavovo namestie) are becoming a hive of activity with café's, bars and restaurants.

Budapest has proven to be a hugely popular destination on our circuit attracting teams from Argentina, Belarus, the Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Romania and Sweden since its inception in 2011.

The Budapest nightlife is one of the best in Europe and this beautiful city is a fantastic setting for you culture vultures by day. Budapest is located outside the eurozone and uses the Forint so works out relatively cheap compared to the Pound or the Euro so more beers for your buck!

Athletico Do Hollande created history and became the second most successful team in eurofootballfives.com football when they won their third tournament. Having won the 2010 and 2011 Algarve Open titles they added the 2014 Amsterdam Fives trophy to their cabinet. Many congratulations to them.

Melee FC were the runners-up and they were also second in the 2013 Barcelona Fives - maybe third time lucky for them at their next tournament appearance.

In the Plate competition there was success for St Paul's College Old Boys as they played out a thrilling Final against Pajero FC with a penalty shoot-out needed to decide the winners.

Personal honours went to Craig Harrison with 11 goals in 7 games - a fine achievement as he also celebrated his stag weekend.

With teams from England, France, Germany and Ireland assembled to do battle it was the local Berlin based team, Hasanheide Hotspur, who ensured that the trophy would stay in Berlin. There was rumours that a bigger and more important trophy came to Berlin in July but we think the World Cup was clearly second to the Berlin Fives in most German hearts.

There was success for France in the top goalscorer category as David Teixeira won the award with 8 goals. Deportivo Dooradoyle of Ireland missed out on a second Plate victory as they lost out on penalties to another local team - Scandittack FC.

With German-based teams winning the Cup and the Plate, FC Auslander were denied a hat-trick in the Wooden Spoon by losing out on Golden Goal to Fred's Fairys for the most coveted *cough* prize of the day.

We can't wait to get to Berlin in 2015.

Check out the 2014 report here to see what it's all about.


Our third tournament of the year and our third different nationality of winner! Following success for Spain and Belarus in the 2014 season it was Portugal that added their name to the list of successful nations. This was a rare feat in the Algarve as the Algarve Open has run since 2009 without a home success - until this year!

We witnessed an all-Portugal Cup Final as Stand Cristina met Water Boy and emerged victorious 2-1. The Plate competition also saw Portuguese success as 11 Esperancas Faz Clube saw off the English challenge of Far Out FC, 1-0.

So with a Portuguese double in the team competitions it was a travelling player who took the individual award as Joe Bardwell of Far Out FC won the Top Goalscorer award with 8 goals on the day. He was second top goalscorer in the 2013 Algarve Open with 6 goals and also the winner of the Top Goalscorer award at the 2012 Berlin Fives.

We'd like to thank all teams for participating and look forward to seeing you again soon.

From the opener in Valencia the eurofootballfives.com 2014 tour moved on to Budapest and we seemed to take the glorious Spanish sun with us. We were treated to a glorious weekend - perfect for football and perfect for some chilled outdoor drinking on the days in the build-up to the event.

On the pitch we had 24 teams assembled from 5 different nations to compete for the ultimate title. In the 81st and final game it was CIS Committee of Belarus who emerged victorious over Argentina (Arg). It was the second tournament of the year that had been decided on penalties and the second consecutive year in Budapest that penalties were needed to decide our champions.

There was also glory for FC Radbroke in the Plate (their 3rd eurofootballfives success) as Budapest Celtic Tigers were Runners-Up for the third time in 4 years (although 2011 and 2012 was in the Cup). Contejus Hurricanes added the 2014 Budapest Fives Trophy to the 2012 Algarve Open Plate in their European "cabinet". Cava Sundays picked up runners-up medals in the Trophy on debut.

Individual honours went to Dydynho of The A Team who became only the second player in eurofootballfives.com history to win a second Top Goalscorer award in only his second tournament.

On a weekend when the temperatures were around the 26-30 degrees mark the travelling teams from England, Ireland and Hungary were treated to some great weather that had been missing for months in Northern Europe.

On the day it was the Spanish who tasted victory for the first time in Valencia since 2010 when Futbol City took the crown. They defeated Penethinaikos in a sensational final that went all the way to penalties after a thrilling 3-3 draw.

In the Plate, Saipan FC broke their duck to claim their first winners trophy as they went on a superb run of form in the latter half of the tournament which culminated in them beating Budapest Celtic Tigers in the Final.

The individual honours on the day went to Daniel Kerr of HMNB Portsmouth who rattled in 12 goals in 6 games to bag the Golden Boot award.

Celtic had finished Runners-Up twice in our Final's so it was a case of third time lucky and it was much deserved.
