TEAMS AND SCHEDULES

Football

The football tournament at EuroCup 2018 produced some amazing matches, culminating in a victory for the UK. EuroCup 2019 promises to be more competitive than ever. There will be football teams coming from all over Europe, representing countries/entities. You can have up to 18 players in your team, including a Football Coach if they are also a player. Team members can be male or female. 

Depending on how successful your team is, you could be playing up to nine matches across Saturday and Sunday, so you’ll need to be pretty fit!

CHEERLEADING

At EuroCup 2019, the cheerleading competition will enjoy as much of the limelight as the football, with so many countries working incredibly hard to produce wonderful, intricate routines. 

To set up your country’s cheerleading team, you can have up to 16 cheerleaders, excluding a Cheerleading Coach. Team members can be male or female.  Be prepared to perform twice on both Saturday and Sunday, dependent on how successful you are.

COUNTRY COACHES

EuroCup 2019 wouldn’t be able to happen without the hard work put in by the many Country Coaches.

They are the co-ordination gurus of your country or entity, responsible for rolling out EuroCup in your country/entity and running your local selection process and activities - aligning with Senior Management, HR, CFO and Comms. They also manage the budget and run the registration process for your team and plan and book the travel schedules.

In more simple terms: your key point of contact for the overall organizational of EuroCup!

Please contact your Country Coach for more information on trying out for your team. If you are not sure who your Country Coach is, please click here.

 
 

Supporters

Each team can bring up to 30 supporters who can cheer their teams on and experience the magic of EuroCup 2019 first hand. If you would like to get involved, please contact your Country Coach for more information.

Please note: supporters CANNOT replace football players or cheerleaders.

Mascot

There is also the opportunity to become a team mascot. They will be included in the supporter team and will be entered into the mascot competition. If you would like to become your team mascot, please contact your Country Coach for more information.
