WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FOR 70+
Invitation to Football (Soccer) in Copenhagen, Denmark
June 11-16, 2018
Akademisk Boldklub (AB) would like to invite teams from all over the World to a tournament for players aged 70+ (with possibility for up to 3 players per team aged 68-69).
We would suggest that players (and spouses) arrive early week 24 (starting Monday, June 11) to also have the possibilty to play training matches against AB or other Danish clubs during the week and prior to the official tournament.
AB will host the event at our training facilities at: Skovbrynet 1, 2880 Bagsværd.
Close to Copenhagen and Skovbrynet train station and also with easy access by car.
More info about AB Grand Veteran Master players (in Danish but with lots of pictures) may be found at www.ab-tjoensere.dk.
We will ask for a registration fee of USD 100 per team to cover administration, referees and beers etc. after the matches.
Further, there will be possibilities to buy lunch at the restaurant which will be open during the events – and we expect to finish with a dinner on Saturday, June 16 also in the restaurant.
That day is also special since the Danish National Team at 18:00 Danish time will play their first match (against Peru) at the World Championship in Russia, so we will have a big screen to be able to follow the event, after the matches and prior to the dinner.
This invitation is mailed to our friends in USA and Japan by Kim Bergenser but we urge you to forward it to Clubs in other countries/cities that may have an interest in joining these friendly matches.
We are exploring through DBU (The Danish Football Association) whether FIFA has knowledge of other countries that may have 70+ players organized in clubs.
And we introduce this event as the first World Championship for clubs with 70+ players – the timing coincide with the Russian event – and may be the start of an ongoing event in other countries each year.
Further details as to rules and accomodations (at own expense) will be forwarded to interested parties, so please let us know if you have an interest in joining this event?
We will ask for a binding registration to reach us no later than March 1, 2018, and soon thereafter we will finalize the tournament schedule including length of matches etc.
We look forward to hearing from you by mail to John Andersen at: email@example.com
