2008 Amsterdam Fives marked eurofootballfives.com
debut in the capital of the Netherlands. The tournament
was marked by goals, goals, goals! With good sized
goals, attacking intent from all teams and difficult
conditions for goalkeepers and defenders an amazing
245 goals were scored in 38 games. This is the
highest total in eurofootballfives.com history.
Amsterdam Fives proved to be the most requested
tournament of our summer season calendar and we
are already making plans to return in 2009. The
tournament saw 16 teams from 4 nations assembled
for a fantastic festival of football. The traveling
teams from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland
and Rotterdam were all looking to beat the home
Amsterdam teams “in their own back yard”.
would like to thank all the teams that took part
in the tournament for playing the game in such
a great spirit. This really did add to the atmosphere
of the tournament and our Dutch hosts have invited
everyone back already.
teams were split into 4 groups of 4, with the
top 2 teams progressing to the prestigious Cup
Competition. The teams finishing in 3rd and 4th
place would compete in the Plate Competition,
still with a chance to collect silverware.
read on to see how the action unfolded over a
great day of competition.
