Referee Information​

The tournament facilities and organization match these high standards by offering;

  • Only natural grass football pitches of high standards at the Veldtofte Idrætspark in Esbjerg, which will also be the location for the finals and the festive closing ceremony;
  • Full board service during the entire tournament in which a (healthy) breakfast, lunch and dinner will be facilitated by the tournament organization;
  • A standard accommodation for referees near the football pitches;
  • Transportation to the football pitches and pleaces nearby to spend your spare time and explore the region of Esbjerg. Moreover, a free group-activity will be organized. In this way, last year's referees watched an Europa League game of Esbjerg fB.

Teams in the age categories (boys) under 12 up to and including under 19 participate in this tournament. All games consist of two 30-minute halves. One or three referees will be appointed to each game;

  • One referee will be appointed to the 8 versus 8 under 12 games.
  • One referee and two assistent-referees are appointed to each game in the under 13 up to and including under 19 age categories. *

Each official will be appointed to three games per day on average. The first games will be played on Wednesday 29th of July and the last games take place on Sunday. Travelling to Esbjerg can be done on Thursday and Monday as the referees’ accommodation is available from one day before the tournament to one day after the tournament. As a referee, you will also be coached by our experienced coaches. This, in addition to refereeing in an international environment, makes up for a great learning experience.
