Holland Easter Open
April 15-18th 2022
The Easter Open is a two-day international youth football tournament, for boys and girls.
This event hasn’t happened in the past two years because of the Coronavirus but in 2019 a total of 450 teams entered from Australia, Denmark, Wales, Germany, USA, England, Morocco, Finland, Scotland, South Africa and of course the Netherlands. Teams have also previously taken part from Luxemburg, Russia, Columbia, Belgium, Nigeria, Japan, Norway and Ireland. One of the great things about this tournament you get the chance to play against teams from different countries.
The tournament will be played over the Easter weekend, Saturday and Sunday. In total there will be 50 excellent grass pitches in use over the weekend. On Saturday the group-stage matches will be played on random grounds. On Sunday each age group plays off in their final games at the same pitches. Every team plays either 5 or 6 matches.
Boys 11-a-side: U19/18, U17, U16, U15, U14 and U13.
Boys 8-a-side: U12 and U11.
Boys 7-a-side: U10, U9b and U8.
Boys 4-a-side: U7
Girls 11-a-side: U17 and U15.
Age Dispensation – In line with most countries throughout the World Holland uses January 1st to define their age groups, so U13 will be born after January 1st 2009. Please note that you can have a maximum of 3 players being one year older than the age group per team. This goes for the full squad including substitutes.
