Our 2018 season kicked off in style in Lisbon as a very strong field of 24 teams competed for glory. A multi-national field comprised teams from Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, England, Ireland, Morocco, Poland, Portugal and Spain and plenty more nationalities contained within those teams.

It was Saipan FC who emerged victorious after a great campaign which saw them suffer just 1 defeat on the way to the title. That defeat was to Galacticos in the group phase who they then defeated in the Cup Final to win the coveted trophy. It was a second title win for Saipan FC who also won the 2015 Mallorca Tournament title. For Galacticos it was a second runners-up finish after also doing so at the 2010 Valencia Fives.

The Plate competition was as strong as some of our Cup competitions in other tournaments. We were treated to a high quality final between 2017 Lisbon Tournament winners Pangare Futebol Clube (Bra) and 2017 Amsterdam Fives winners, BSP FC. It finished 2-2 in normal time before BSP FC won 3-1 on penalties.

The Trophy Final saw Trinacria A of Belgium triumph over Tysers of England. Penalties were again required after a 1-1 draw this time. Trinacria A won the shoot-out 3-1 to take home the winners medals.

Personal honours, for the first time ever in our tournaments, were shared as Hector Navarro Real (Saipan FC) and Hamza Patel (Galacticos) both scored 10 goals in the tournament. Well done to both of them.

The 5th May 2018 marked our 95th tournament in Europe and our return to Latvia having previously visited Riga in September 2016. Two years ago, L'Albiceleste of France were victorious. In 2018, Deddington Sea Badgers took their crown in stunning fashion.

In the Cup Final, Riga United were odds on favourites having defeated the Sea Badgers 9-3 in the group phase. Deddington Sea Badgers were simply magnificent in the Cup Final though. Having lead 1-0 and 2-1 they then had to fight back from 3-2 down to set-up a penalty shoot-out. They won the shoot-out and claimed their first eurofootballfives.com title in their second eurofootballfives.com appearance.

In the Plate competition, there was success for Johnsbridge FC who also won their first eurofootballfives.com trophy having previously collected runners-up medals in the Plate at the 2016 Krakow Trophy. They defeated Spider Mans 1s in the Plate Final.

Inter Hoddesdon put aside an opening game defeat to win six successive games as they swept to the 2018 Mallorca Fives title. With a thumping Semi-Final win over Inter Balear in the bag they proved too much for Renshaw in the Cup Final as they won 4-1.

There was Spanish success in the Plate competition as Algaiga Golf (formerly Son Gual) registered victory after defeating Multiple Scorgasms in the Final.

The personal honours of the day went to Toby Cleaver of Inter Hoddesdon as his tally of 14 goals in 7 games were instrumental in his team's success. He picked up the Golden Boot award.

The 16th June saw our annual Summer extravaganza of football with the open age and veterans' tournaments sharing the same stage. With 16 open age and 14 veterans teams signed up (a sell out for both) we had a great day of football in a stunning beach setting.

The open age kicked us off and we witnessed a remarkable victory from 9 Nana Budds. Our 2009 Valencia Fives champions claimed tournament victory against Cruz Del Sur (in the Cup Final) and Cruz Del Surely (in the Cup Semi-Final). It was a sensational victory as 9 Nana Budds only just qualified for the Cup in the final round of group games. Cruz Del Sur must have been rueing their luck as the two teams only conceded 3 goals between them in a total of 19 combined games.

In the Veterans tournament, Mini FC who won here on the Veterans last visit to the Algarve (2015) were victorious again.

Thank you to everyone who participated at the event and ensured it was a massive success!
