Prague Strahov Cup

June 3-5th or 6th 2022

It is hardly surprising that around 150 teams come to Prague each year for the Prague Strahov Cup. Why? Because it strikes the perfect balance between international competition and spending time in a beautiful city.

The Prague Strahov Cup is a wonderful opportunity for teams from the East and West to meet and compete. Each year, friends of football from ten different countries convene over the Pentecost weekend in one of the most stunning cities in Europe.

It is a fantastic sporting event, all the more so considering it takes place in Prague, a cosmopolitan hotspot. Simply cross one of the charming bridges spanning the Vitava River and you are already in the city centre – exactly where you want to be.
