Int. Helvetia U16 Cup &  Special European Cup

A tournament that combines competitive sport and social commitment

The INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP enables the new generation of Swiss footballers to compete with top international teams.

At the same time, the event provides the framework for people to come into contact with the social opportunities of football. Teams from crisis-stricken or disadvantaged regions of the world are invited to the tournament to give them the opportunity to rub shoulders with the best in their age group. The SPECIAL EUROPEAN CUP, a separate tournament for people with disabilities, takes place at the same time. In addition to the tournament victories, both inclusion and the building of mutual understanding are therefore at the heart of this sporting event. Joint training sessions involving players with and without disabilities are held. Inclusion is therefore not only explained theoretically but experienced actively.

Beneficiary

In addition to children and young people with disabilities, Switzerland’s top youth players and teams also benefit from this unique event, as do the members and officials of the special guest team. The INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP fosters understanding and inclusion on several levels – and thus remains a lasting memory for all participants.

Strengthening development cooperation

“Football stands for human values such as respect for the opponent, recognition of rules, fair play and teamwork. The rules are simple, easy to understand and the same everywhere. You can connect people regardless of cultural differences. Football can't solve everything, but we can make a big contribution to better coexistence. We have to understand sport as a school of life. "

Andreas Lienhart, former SCR Altach player
