The tournament will be between the host country Malta, Russia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

This is a fantastic opportunity to watch four national teams play on one of the finest green pitches in the Mediterranean.

This will be a formal set of matches, but everyone is welcome to attend, and Marsa Sports Club has kindly offered to open its doors to interested spectators, dignitaries and schools.

There will be plenty of local players to help visitors to understand the game, and refreshments and places to sit.  You are welcome to come to Marsa Sports Club to sit and watch for as long as you like.  Most games taken about three hours, so there will be time for two games a day.

There should be time for some fun activities for the children at lunchtime.
