Can you claim victory in Portugal's stunning resort of the Algarve?

Veterans teams are classified as those teams aged 35+. Each squad is permitted two players aged 30-34 within their squad.

The eurofootballfives Veterans Tournament is a moveable feast. Following the veritable delights of Lisbon 2013, Mallorca 2014, the Algarve 2015, Lisbon 2016 and Mallorca 2017 we are delighted to return to the Algarve for our sixth edition of the tournament in June 2018.

The weekend is perfect for you if you like playing your football in the sun with plenty of beach action on non-tournament days and plenty of nightlife on tap to party the rest of your tour away. The Algarve has it all in abundance and much more the region is famous for its golf courses so why not play a round on tour.

In terms of nightlife, you can choose to stay in our Albufeira options with the Albufeira strip famed for its nightlife and also the Albufeira Old Town another centre for partying the night away. If you stay at our venue then you are in-between Albufeira and Vilamoura giving you a choice for your nights out. Vilamoura is more upmarket relative to Albufeira with many bars and restaurants focused around the marina.

Mini FC won on our last Veterans visit to the Algarve in 2015. FC Mahou are the champions from our the Mallorca event in 2017. Can you put your name on the Cup in 2018?
