Norway Cup, August 2023
We have been invited to the Norway Cup 2023 and will be looking to take a few teams during the August holidays.
The Norway Cup is one of the world’s largest football tournament for children and young people aged 10 to 19 years old. In 2016 it reached an all time high with 2199 teams participating in Norway Cup. Around 6000 games were played over the course of the tournament in 2016.
The Norway Cup is organized by Bækkelagets Sportklub and it all started in 1972 with 420 teams and 8,400 participants. Norway Cup has been played every year since 1972.
Overall through the years, participants, players and referees from 127 nations have participated. In addition, the Norway Cup is by many considered to be women’s football’s cradle in Norway. We have had girls teams participate from the start with eight girls teams taking part in 1972. This was four years before the Norwegian Football Association officially recognized women’s football.
1600 of Bækkelagets Sportsklubs and over 2800 members volunteer to help during Norway Cup. This amounts to over 60,000 volunteer hours in total each year. Both young and old work to make this a wonderful football party in Oslo to remember. The youngest is five and the oldest, Norway Cups grandmother, (Rigmor Andresen) will turn 95 in 2017. In addition, more than 600 volunteers from our co-organizers help create the world’s biggest football tournament.
