The 2014 season kicked off in Valencia. It was the fourth city to be granted this honour after Krakow, Barcelona and Lisbon before it. Valencia has always been popular since our 2009 debut and delivered another great day of tournament action.

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.

From the opener in Valencia the 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 history to win a second Top Goalscorer award in only his second tournament.

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.

In the fifth annual Mallorca Tournament, Cheesecake FC broke their duck at their 6th tournament since their debut in 2010. It was a long overdue victory and we've often said they are the best team never to win a tournament - not anymore! They were arguably the strongest team from the moment we kicked off right through to the final with some big group wins and some hard fought victories in the knock-out phase.

In the Plate competition there was a first win for Brioche - quite possibly the most excited team to ever win a Plate competition. The local team from Spain defeated Athletic 8Minute Bilbao 3-1 in the Final.

In the Wooden Spoon competition there was success for Paris St Gentleman who put a disappointng group phase behind them to storm to glory in the knockout phase with a 6-1 win in the Semi-Final and a 2-0 win in the Final.

The relatively new Veterans Tournament moved on from its debut in Lisbon 2013 to the glorious shores of Mallorca for 2014. The tournament grew in numbers, stature, atmosphere and quality and we had a great day by the beach in Playa de Palma. We had two very closely matched teams in the Cup Final and it was Palmesanos (Spa) who edged out The Blackouts (Ire) 1-0.

For the first time we had a Plate competition in the Veterans section and it was €agles 3:36 (formerly New Milton Eagles) who added a Veterans Plate title to their two Plate victories in the Open Age section (Krakow Trophy 2010, Algarve Open 2011). They beat Dickie Dogs in the final who collected their first medals in our tournaments.

The top goalscorer award was claimed by Ronan Gilligan of The Blackouts with a return of 8 goals in 6 matches.

2012 Rigford Seahawks (Eng)

2013 ABC United (Rom)

2014 Hasanheide Hotspur (Ger)

Hasanheide Hotspur became the third winners of the Berlin Fives. With 20(+) teams signed up for every edition to date it is fair to say the Berlin Fives has established itself as a popular fixture in the calendar.

With teams from England, France, Germany and Ireland assembled to do battle it was the local Berlin based team 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.

Following superb tournaments in Prague 2012 and Budapest 2013 we were honoured to be asked again to host the JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament. Bratislava was the stage in 2014 and it proved to be another high quality event played to a superb standard and with a great atmosphere. The stunning city of Bratislava provided the perfect back drop for the tournament.

Teams travelled from far and wide from as far as Dubai as JNJ Middle East made their debut. They were joined by teams from Czech Republic, England, Poland, Russia, Serbia and Switzerland.

JNJ High Wycombe had finished 2nd in 2012 and 2013 but it was their year for glory in Slovakia as they defeated Tekkers Lovakia 2-1 in an excellent final. In the Plate competition it was JNJ Russia A versus JNJ Russia B where the B team emerged victorious 3-1.

The top goalscorer award went to Gaspar Arutyunov with 10 goals in 7 games - he became the 2nd Russia in 3 tournaments to claim the golden boot award.

A big thank you to everyone who attended a fantastic day of tournament action!  We hope to see you in 2015.

Athletico Do Hollande created history and became the second most successful team in 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.

The 2014 Bratislava Fives was our debut in the Slovakian capital and what a successful weekend it was! We had glorious weather, glorious football, 24 great teams and a fantastic host city.

We were treated to a sensational Cup Final with CIS Committee of Belarus gunning down their second title of the season against Skidmarks who were hoping to secure their third title. It was the team from Belarus who clinched it 2-0 to add Bratislava Fives success to their win at the Budapest Fives in May.

The Plate Final was contested by Budapest Celtic Lions and GSF Drunkerz. Budapest Celtic (their Tigers squad) finished runners-up at the 2014 Budapest Fives to FC Radbroke and they were to be the bridesmaids again as GSF Drunkerz took the victory in an epic tussle. The game finished 2-2 and was eventually won by the Slovak team on penalties, 6-5.

The tournament marked's fourth 24-team event (after 2012 Berlin Fives, 2012 Valencia Fives, 2014 Budapest Fives) and saw our fifth ever "Trophy" tournament (there was also 25-teams in Barcelona 2013). This was a third tier competition within the tournament to complement our traditional "Cup" and "Plate" competitions. The Trophy Final was won by Ziar Crew defeating their compatriots Fireball 5-1 to take the Trophy honours.

An amazing 25 teams from 10 countries gathered in Barcelona for the 2014 Barcelona Fives. We had teams from England, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Spain, the Ukraine and Wales. At the end of the day it was Monexy of the Ukraine who took the glory with a 3-2 win over last year's champions - Los Swallacticos.

In the Plate competition it was a win for Naranjitos who took the trophy down the coast from Barcelona back home to Valencia. They triumphed over Red Cow Belgrade of England who had put in their best @eurofootball5 performance to date. The Trophy Final was an England versus Germany affair and it was England victorious as El Combe Old Boys saw off SV Zoo, 5-0.

Ruairi O'Neill of Los Swallacticos was the day's top goalscorer with 9 goals in 7 games so well done to him.

It was a great day's competition and a fantastic climax to our 2014 season. Roll on the 2015!
