  • Reycup 2021
     (21.07.2021 - 25.07.2021)

    Make a new interesting experience by refereeing in the dual-system (2 refs on the field)! Reykjavik international football and fun festival is a nice tournament where famous teams from Iceland, England and other countries meet. It is located in the heart of Reykjavik. We are guests at a very great host, Trottur Reykjavik, a club that plays in the 2nd highest league of Iceland. We always receive a great service there. There are several offers around the tournament to make it a fun festival too.

    See official tournament booklet here: reycup-brochure-2020.pdf (Version 2020, but it will be alike in 2021).

    For more information on this tournament read the reports in our tournament archive from previous years..

    The 1st day of the tournament (Wednesday) is usually reserved for the opening ceremony in the evening. Last year we already had some games on Wednesday. But maybe you find some time to visit Reykjavik. Or you do so on Monday. From Thursday to Sunday there will be games, starting at 8 o'clock in the morning ending at about 6 o'clock in the evening. Be prepared to be on the field for 4 hours a day (it may happen that even more is required, so good stamina is needed).

    All participants show a fair and friendly attitude, so it is really a pleasure to be referee there. On average, the tournament offers a medium quality of games (some easy games with the younger ones, more challenging in U16).

    Requirements for taking part:

    • experience in refereeing with assistants
    • English language
    • good physical condition
