The 2013 season kicked off in Lisbon. It was the third city to be granted this honour after Krakow and Barcelona before it. Lisbon was also special this year as it was our first tournament in the Portuguese capital.

It was the first and certainly won't be the last after a great day of football action, a superb city to explore and a fantastic nightlife to enjoy. On the day there was Portuguese success for both Groundforce Lisboa in the Plate and HS Decor in the Cup competition.

The individual honours on the day went to Jon Stead of FC Dynamoes who rattled in 15 goals in 7 games to bag the Golden Boot award.

The 2013 Mallorca Fives was supported by teams from England, France, Hungary and Spain to decide who would be crowned champions - May the 4th be with you and all that.

We enjoyed a glorious days weather (not surprising as Mallorca has 300 sunshine days per year) and revelling in the sunshine were Grant Thornton of France who won their first title against two-times previous winners, Skidmarks.

In the Plate competition Son Gual won their first silverware as the Spanish team edged Coverton Road 1-0 in the Final.

Budapest has rapidly become a firm favourite in our season with 20 teams in 2011, 18 teams in 2012 and 26 teams in 2013. It is easy to see why as this stunning city is unbelievable value for those teams coming from the UK or Euro-currency nations. The football is also played in one of the best venues on our circuit.

On the pitch it was Team Bear who claimed victory in a thrilling penalty shoot over Rigford Seahawks Omega when goalkeeper Simon Walker (in shades of the 2011 Budapest Fives Cup Final) was the hero saving 2 penalties before slotting home the winning kick to claim glory.

In the Plate competition there was Hungarian success for the second year running as debutants Megapletes triumphed 3-0 over Bozeat All Stars.

The top goalscorer came from defeated French Semi-Finalists Les 5 Salopards with Yanick Jista top-scoring with 7 goals.

The Plate Champion of Champions Tournament was played in Budapest alongside our traditional Budapest Fives tournament. It was an invitational event where 8 of our previous Plate finalists accepted the challenge to see who would be crowned Plate Champion of Champions and the finest team at this level of football.

WIth a very multinational line-up (Czech Rep, England, Germany, Hungary and Ireland) it was to be an incredibly tight finish. Csabagyongye of Hungary and Alphasights both finished on 16 points with a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. In the end it was Csabagyongye who won courtesy of goal difference +11 compared to their opponents +10.

The 2013 Berlin Fives marked a hugely triumphant return to Germany for The 2012 tournament was our fastest selling ever and was an unbelievable weelend. We wondered if it could ever be matched - it could! 2013 saw a lot of fun, a lot of laughs and some sensational football.

With teams from the Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Ireland and Romania all competing we had a plethora of talent on show. We arguably had our strongest ever Cup Final as 2009 Barca Fives winners Luminy Wolves (France) encountered 2012 Budapest Fives winners ABC United (Romania). The Romanians were just too good on the day and swept to a great victory. The crowds watched, admired and cheered the sublime skills of our winners.

in the Plate competition Saipan FC (Ireland) reached a third final and it was third time unlucky as they lost 2-1 to debutants Team Geek (England). It was No Janesy No (England) who picked up the Wooden Spoon playoff to end their tournament on a crescendo of two successive wins.

We say thank you and farewell to the 2013 Berlin Fives and look forward with relish to the 2014 extravaganza!

The 8th edition of the Krakow Trophy was another great tournament in a history of great events in the Polish party capital. With 18 teams signed up for the battle it was our largest tournament in Krakow ever.

At the end of the day it was Budapest Celtic Lions who enjoyed a narrow 2-1 victory over The A Team of France. It was Budapest Celtic's first victory in 5 tournaments following two Runners-Up finishes. Although there was disappointment for The A Team there was personal glory for Dydynho who claimed the Top Goalscorer award with a return of 14 goals in 8 games.

For the Plate competition it was local team Awiw who took the honours. It didn't look likely when they trailed Saga Louts 3-0 in the early stages but they fought back to 3-3 to take the game to penalties which they duly won 2-1.

Thank you to all teams who made it on the day - both those who travelled to Poland and also the local football community who continue to support this fine festival of football. Thank you.
