UEFA stages the Regions Cup Competition every two years. All UEFA member associations are invited to enter a regional or a national amateur team for the competition. This tournament offers a special football experience to players who would otherwise not have the opportunity to compete in international competitions. Apart from improving standards at amateur level, which is recognised as an important pillar of European football, such tournaments promote reciprocal regional contacts, understanding, acceptance and greater knowledge of other cultures and regions.


 

The Malta Football Association through the Gozo Football Association will again be organising the Regions Cup tournament next month. Matches will be played at the Gozo Stadium on 1,3 and 5 October 2014.

 

Regions Cup competitions have always offered interesting and competitive football matches. Teams are well prepared and committed to the tournament in no small way. The atmosphere experienced in previous editions is a clear example of how interaction over a few days can establish friendship between players and officials coming from varying cultures.

 

Participating Teams:

GOZO (Malta)

ANKARA (Turkey)

VAASA (Finland)

SOUTH REGION (Russia)

 

The Gozo team will again be led by Coach Eddie Vella who has the required experience to organise his side in this competition and be amongst the favourites.
