WELCOME TO THE 40TH HELSINKI
CUP JUBILEE TOURNAMENT!

The first Helsinki Cup tournament took place in the summer of 1976. Already
then nearly 300 teams participated in the games. During the years hundreds of
thousands of players from nearly a hundred countries have participated. Many
international stars, like Jari Litmanen, Aki Riihilahti, Laura Österberg Kalmari, Joel
Pohjanpalo, Sami Hyypiä, Julio Baptista of Brazil’s national team and the current
head coach of S.S.C. Napoli, Rafael Benitez, have risen to fame from these fields.

Over 20.000 players and over 1.000 teams from 10 different countries participated
in last year’s record breaking tournament. In 2014 Helsinki Cup was awarded the
”Funnier Helsinki ” award. This award of the ”Art goes Kapakka” city festival is
given each year to a person or organisation that has spread most joy and energy into
Helsinki’s city and cultural scene. Today Helsinki Cup is also Finland’s best-known
international football tournament and one of the largest tournaments in Europe.

Next summer’s Helsinki Cup will be the 40th jubilee tournament and will be held
5-10 July 2015. All matches are played on the grass and turf fields of Helsinki City.
There are ca. 70 playing fields and some matches are even played in the Töölö
football stadion.

Helsinki Cup warmly welcomes all Finnish and international, boys and girls teams to
this unique six-day tournament. Enjoy a genuine international tournament atmo-
sphere in our beautiful capital. Come and enjoy!
