The Algarve is one of the most beautiful regions in Europe and arguably the world. Located on the Southern coast of Portugal, fly into Faro as the gateway for a great all year climate, sun-drenched beaches and first class golf courses. It comes as no surprise then that we have chosen this location to be the host of a number of eurofootballfives.com competitions.

After the sun has set, the Algarve really comes alive. Outdoor terraces on busy streets and on the sea front are perfect places to kick back and enjoy a few early evening drinks. Then you can head on to one of the casinos or one of the many night clubs that the Algarve has to offer. In the summer, in particular, there are options galore to choose from such as foam parties and beach BBQ parties. The Algarve in the evenings can be as full on or as relaxed as you want it to be.

Alicante – stylish Spanish city with great beaches, great culture and history and a great nightlife. Some have even described it as a more “compact” Barcelona.

Alicante has the city centre and the San Juan beach area – we feature accommodation in both. The city centre has everything a city centre can offer plus beaches and a marina. The San Juan Playa area has a more resort feel to it and will be the base for our tournament. Both are close together so if you choose to stay in the city centre then San Juan is in easy reach and vice versa.

For the nightlife, this is concentrated in the El Barrio Old Town and the marina – bars spilling out into the streets in a friendly and convivial atmosphere. The chiringuitos on the Postiguet and San Juan beaches are said to host some of the best parties at night during the summer.

 
 

In Ajax, Amsterdam has one of the most successful teams in Europe. Ajax has earned the right to keep the European Cup - winning consecutively from 1971 through to 1973. In 1972, they completed the treble by winning the Dutch League, Cup and European Cup. Add the 1995 Champions League, with one of the finest young teams to win the tournament, there are not many cities in the world that can claim a finer breeding ground.

So you know the football pedigree of Amsterdam and Ajax - do you know what the city has to offer in terms of entertainment? Of course you do! You do not need us to tell you that Amsterdam is one of the most liberal cities in the world and with plenty of drinking establishments to choose from and a liberal outlook, backed up by liberal sex and drug laws, comes a great relaxed atmosphere to enjoy your post-football drinks and the variety of 'nightlife' on offer.

Sit down with a blank piece of paper and think of all the legends and stars of the world game that have applied their trade in Barcelona. You can probably note down a good couple of dozen without thinking - Messi, Cruyff, Guardiola, Koeman, Laudrup, Ronaldo, Romario, Stoichkov, Maradona, Ronaldo, Figo, Luis Enrique, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Deco, Giuly, Eto'o, Marquez, Lineker, Puyol, Thuram, Zambrotta, Suarez, Neymar....the list could go on.

Putting football to one side, Barcelona itself is a fascinating city awash with historical and modern art and culture and not to mention one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities in Europe. The city has a certain buzz to it both during the day and the evenings when the night scene bursts into life. If you never get the chance to visit Barcelona during your life you have definitely missed out.

You can visit the remnants of the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and Checkpoint Charlie.

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and the new kid on the block in terms of Central European party venues. If you've enjoyed the delights of Budapest, Krakow and Prague then you will have an awesome time in Bratislava.

You can't really go wrong in Bratislava with so many bars, clubs and restaurants to enjoy and all at a very very reasonable price with a beer costing around £0.89 on average (www.pintprice.com, 16.11.13) although in the trendier bars, clubs and central tourist prices you can pay more but you'll still be quids in compared to home.

Of course, away from the pubs/bars you've got a first class football tournament to enjoy and also a great medieval city to explore. For the culture vultures you've got the castles, the Danube and the Apollo bridge as particular sights of special interest.

Come and join us in Bratislava - you'll have a great weekend.

Budapest , known as the 'Queen of the Danube ', is a magnificent city exuding a cultural sophistication that entices and enchants. Gracing both sides of the legendary river with grand historic buildings, regal bridges and graceful tree-lined boulevards, it is the city's elegant beauty and romantic atmosphere that has given Budapest Parisian status among the Eastern European countries.

Budapest represents an ideal destination for a sporting weekend away – the perfect backdrop for the tournament itself, a beautiful historical and cultural city to explore by day and a nightlife to compete with any other city in Europe.

Together with Sopot and Gdynia, Gdansk creates Tri-City (3 towns for the price of 1). Gdansk is attractive because of the numerous historical and cultural sites including a charming medieval Old Town that may well remind you of Krakow in some respects. If you have time on your tour it is worth a visit to the pier & beach in Sopot and Kosciuszko square in Gdynia. Sopot is worth a visit for the nightlife if you fancy trying Gdansk one night and Sopot the next.

Talking of nightlife…. Gdansk is an excellent place to go out drinking and/or dancing. There are countless pubs and bars , many of which are located in the basements of historic buildings. Many of these after dark turn into discos to complement the other clubs on offer. Sopot is the beach resort with the associated nightlife and is often dubbed as “party town” of Tri-city. There's plenty on offer to keep you occupied.

Located on the River Vistula, the ancient city of Krakow is considered to be the 'Jewel of Poland' and is one of the jewels of Europe. The title of the 'New Prague' does not do Krakow justice as it is a fantastic city in its own right. It is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe and is home to the oldest university in Europe which, with over 100,000 students, creates and fires up a superb nightlife.

If you are looking for an up and coming destination for your football tour or stag weekend then look no further than Lisbon. It may not be as well trodden as other destinations such as Barcelona, Berlin etc but then that is part of its charm. We have yet to meet someone who has been on tour to Lisbon and not had a great time.

Like most destinations in Spain and Portugal, Lisbon boasts a great climate. The city has plenty of culture and history plus a thriving nightlife to keep you entertained throughout your tour.

If there was an award for ‘the new Prague ' then the capital of Slovenia , Ljubljana , would certainly be in the running. It has the perfect combination of daytime history and culture mixed with a lively nightlife. With low cost airlines now flying there it has become a very accessible and affordable option.

On the football front, the Slovenes are still in the infancy of their independence but are already establishing themselves in the world of football. The Football in Slovenia and in particular Ljubljana is developing fast. The clubs are fast improving, take their football seriously and are competitive but friendly. The clubs welcome the chance to test their skills against foreign opposition so a visit to Ljubljana will provide an excellent challenge. A great destination for a club tour.

 
 

Why not try Mallorca for your next tour? Our tournament hotels are based just between Palma Nova and Magaluf giving you great access to both resorts. The beach is less than 500m away and the hotel has a great pool to enjoy all the sunshine that Mallorca has to offer.

The nightlife in Magaluf is famous so you can party the night away to all hours on the strip. Remember - what goes on tour stays on tour....if you can remember it anyway.

For the culture vultures why not head to Palma itself - Palma offers modern shopping malls, high-street shops and charming boutiques, perfect for die-hard shoppers, while Palma's numerous pavement cafes provide a welcome break in-between the city's magnificent sights. You can also stroll down the famous tree-lined Passeig des Born at the heart of Palma's historical centre, bordered by ancient narrow lanes and elegant palaces, or visit the sophisticated shops of the elegant Avenida Jaume III, one of Palma's best-known avenues.

Mallorca has plenty to offer for all tastes - contact us on info@eurofootballfives.com to get involved.

Prague , the capital of the Czech Republic , is known as "The Pearl of Europe", “The City of a Hundred Spires”, “The golden heart of Europe ”, “The Amsterdam of the East” and “The Jewel in the Crown" of Central Europe . However you get to know Prague , just remember that Prague is one of the 'must see' cities in Europe .  

Prague is both rich in culture and easy on the pocket – an ideal location for a fun packed weekend break full of nightlife. With direct flights from a host of UK airports it is also very accessible.

One of the new ‘old world' destinations that has been opened up in the last 10-15 years with the break up of the soviet union, the advancement of the low cost flight revolution and the search for new, interesting and cheap places to play football and drink cheaply. Riga is the largest and most cosmopolitan of the Baltic states .

Riga is an increasingly popular short-break destination and it comes as no surprise as the Latvian capital has much to offer. Similar to other cities in Central and Eastern Europe it marries the challenges of being a modern capital with preserving the historic charm well. Riga has succeeded in retaining its old charm and beauty.

The nightlife of Riga is varied to say the least. You are as likely to be dining in American burger bars, Arabic restaurants and trendy Sushi bars as much as a traditional restaurant. Riga by night is a bustling metropolis with many bars and clubs open till the early hours of the morning.

In sporting terms Latvia has always been a footballing backwater. However, an appearance at the Euro 2004 championships in Portugal marked Latvia 's emergence. You will also have seen a Latvian presence in the UK with Marian Pahars' spell at Southampton (dubbed the Latvian Michael Owen) and the less successful spell at Arsenal for Igor Stepanovs. We have also seen their most famous club side Skonta Riga play in both the UEFA Cup and Champions League, including a visit to Stamford Bridge in 1999.

Warsaw is one of Europe's hidden gems. For those that have been there in recent years they will have witnessed astronomic changes in the city. Warsaw has enjoyed extensive cosmetic surgery blasting away the cobwebs of the past with gusto.

In terms of nightlife, Poland has become on of the social centres of Europe for nightlife. Krakow remains the first choice but Warsaw should not be underestimated as it has a huge amount to offer.  Warsaw meets all the needs for a great night out - cheap beer, English speaking locals, a whole host of bars and clubs to suit all tastes plus many a beautiful woman to cast your roving eye on!

 
 

So, why go to Valencia? Well, you have the beaches and a great climate. There is a cracking nightlife which often dips under the radar as most people think Barcelona, Prague or Amsterdam before Valencia comes to mind. This is a shame as Valencia's nightlife is right up there with the Calle Juan Llorens, Barrio del Carmen and Malvarossa Beach areas amongst the best to spend the night partying. The fact that Valencia slips under the radar is also an advantage as you do not see as many stag weekends in town as you may do in somewhere like Dublin for example.

If you are looking for a bit of class, civilisation and culture then there is plenty to see around the historic centre. So, if you're well travelled around the party capitals of Europe give Valencia a try - you will not be disappointed.

In what will be our 11th season (2017) of tournament action, the next exciting destination to hit our portfolio will be Vilnius - capital of Lithuania.

We made our debut in the Baltics in Riga in September 2016 and the tournament was a huge success. It is clear there was a lot of interest in playing your football in the region so we have added Vilnius to the calendar.

If you've enjoyed the delights of Budapest, Prague, Bratislava, Riga and Krakow (like many of you have) then heading to Lithuania could well be the perfect destination for you!

Whether you are a 5-a-side team playing in a local league, an 11-a-side amateur team, a work team, looking for a great stag weekend activity or simply a group of lads looking for a boys weekend away on the beers then we think the Vilnius Tournament would be a great option.
