COPA DEL MAR 2023 IN CROATIA

Straight after the 2022 edition in Liguria, we travelled to the upper-north part of Croatia to scout the hotel and sport accommodation we found before the Covid time.
The area of Umag is a perfect base. Only a short distance from the boarder of neighbor Slovenia we contracted 2 good hotels with in between 3 good 5x5 soccer pitches.

 

VENICE (I) airport can be found at 2.5h distance. The smaller airports of TRIEST & TREVISO (I) and LJUBLJANA (SLO) are about 1.5 h and more south PULA (HR) lies at a distance of 90 km. The big international airport of ZAGREB is a 3 h drive.

The tournament town is a perfect base to visit some nice places!
Piran (SLO): a 30 min drive
Umag: 15 min
Novigrad: 30 min
Buje:35 min
Groznjan: 45 min
Porec: 40 min

TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION in 2023

We can offer you rooms in 2 hotels. A SOL 4* & a MELIA 5* in types: (as long they’re available)

  • Single
  • Double
  • Triple (3rd person on a sofa bed)

They all had a massive response of 120 teams – 1500 participants.
Regularly we met teams who only like to participate in a tournament in the spring or summer, and so the idea started to go back to the original idea.
A smaller tournament which combine soccer with perfect holiday time.
COPA DEL MAR offer those teams a 5-a-side outdoor on “natural” or “artificial” grass in a country were the sun has a capacity to shine.

To keep everybody interested we choose a carrousel of destinations, so we can offer outside soccer players the possibility to discover new places. Not only for playing, but also to enjoy tourism.
Starting with sparkling Barcelona - Spain 2010 , we moved to quiet and green Esposénde in North Portugal 2011. After that, a jewel of an Greek island, Zakynthos 2012, the next year we played in Pinarella di Cervia in 2013 Italy.

In 2015, we are part of the event “European Sport City” in the Algarve. For the 2016 edition we returned to the Adriatic site and received 34 teams in Riccione Italy. For the 2017 & 2018 editions we moved more East and picked Porec in Croatia and Evia in Greece, to greet again +500 people coming from 18 countries. 2019, Our 10th Anniversary edition was celebrated in Vilamoura Portugal with 32 teams, which confirmed that we’re THE friendship tournament of Europe!

 

Covid-19 did prevent the planned editions of 2020 & 2021. But in 2022 we celebrate our new liberty with a fantastic edition near sparkling Genova, in beautiful Loano Italy. For 2023 we plan the event, almost at the boarder of Slovenia & Croatia in the great surroundings of Umag Croatia

Players, supporters, families and friends, you’re all welcome to join this feast! We will host you with all of our energy and enthusiasm.
