Hasselt Cup

April 2-5th 2021

The organisers of the Hasselt Cup have two fantastic trump cards up their sleeve: the lovely centre of Hasselt, the provincial capital of Belgian Limburg, and two huge, glorious sports parks.

This combination works brilliantly: since it began in 2000, the Hasselt Cup has always been packed to the rafters. Organisers RC Hades and Zonhoven United provides tons of football in laid-back surroundings, just a few kilometres from the centre of Hasselt. Insiders know that the central area around the ‘Grote Markt’ (the Grand Square) has a lot of offer. Hasselt Cup: welcoming and sociable.
