Teams are being invited to enter next year’s 2015 Hughes Insurance Foyle Cup which will take place in Londonderry and North West region from July 20-25.

The invitation is extended to all clubs competing in youth football, North or South, to compete in this event with no fewer than nine male and three female competitions to enter.

The format and structure of the Foyle Cup tournament is one which gives every participant the chance to play as much football as possible as well as experience all that Derry has to offer.

 Teams compete across a variety of age groups – 9/10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17 and 19 with three Ladies events as well at 11, 13 and 14 plus.
 Whilst there are many age categories to enter, the Hughes Insurance Foyle Cup is about more than the football. Camaraderie, friendly rivalry and superb hospitality from the local population will make your visit to the 2015 tournament one to remember.

Whilst there will undoubtedly be a high standard of entry, the tournament is played in the Olympic spirit – ‘It is not always the winning that is important, it is the taking part.’

For tournament organiser, Michael Hutton, the 2015 tournament will be without doubt the best ever.

“How do you judge success? Is it judged on the number of entries? We had 220 teams competing this year and probably even more next year,” he said.

“Is it judged on the quality of entry or how far teams travel? We attract a high quality of entry with teams from Premier league in Scotland and England competing annually and teams travelling from as far away as Canada and America. Is success gauged on the quality of pitches? Then for sure the Foyle Cup ranks as one of the best for the compliments received annually highlight that fact. Is success based on the number of spectators? Well, if so, 2015 will be our biggest and best yet.”
