4th annual Mallorca Tournament (and our 5th on
this sunshine island) kicked off on the 14th June

Paris first competed on the eurofootballfives.com
stage at the 2011 Budapest Fives where they made
quite an impact with both their squads finishing
second in their group behind strong local Hungarian
teams. The Cup Quarter-Finals saw both squads
go out with the A team losing 1-0 to Olympic Phil
Babb (who had won all 4 tournaments they'd played
in at that stage) and the B team losing 3-1 to
Csabagyongye who were only seconds away from knocking
Olympic Phil Babb out in the subsequent Cup Semi-Final.
They followed this up by playing in the 2012 Algarve
Open where their A team went all the way to the
final but fell just short as they took the Runners-Up
medals. In 2013 they were also to miss out by
the narrowest of margins as CFC lost in the Cup

Alejandro Sanchez Solano and Ismael Gil Gomez.
Benjamin Cahart scored the goal for the French
