We emphasise the friendly get together between youngsters of different nationalities and cultures. On Sunday after the final there will be a trophies and awards ceremony and live music for everyone. One of our goals at the Lisbon Football Youth Cup is that coaches have time and opportunities for a good football chat across borders.
