To this day, we have been waiting for a final response from our foreign teams regarding participation, so we have to report the sad news that foreign teams have refused to come to Lithuania because of the war in Ukraine. Therefore, we are canceling the U8, U7 and U6 age group tournaments this spring.
For this reason, we are calling You to come to the Ateitis CUP Young Talents 2022 tournament. The Ateitis CUP Young talents is a new project that we will be organizing from May this year. The main goal is the participation of top football academies from all over Europe and a special focus on playing beautiful football. So we invite your team to the Ateitis CUP Young Talents tournament, which will take place on May, in Vilnius.
We want to apologize for this situation, but we do not want to organize a tournament that does not meet our quality standards and you will get an experience that we did not all expect to provide.
We are proud to announce that Ateitis CUP 2022 Spring tournament is doing great and every weekend we have different age groups. This week we will have two age groups in our tournament – teams U10 and U9.
We are very sorry that teams from Italy are not coming because of the war in Ukraine but we are happy that teams from Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Poland in all Lithuania are still coming to us and showing the great football.
All the matches will be held in Sportima arena – the biggest and best football stadium in Vilnius with artificial grass.
Don’t miss this super great event and come to visit wonderful city Vilnius on 25-27 of March, 2022.
This weekend we had another football festive - this time with teams from Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Sweden and Finland representing the U11 age group. There were fierce battles on the football field for all three days of the tournament, all the guys wanted to perform as well as possible and take the highest possible place in the standings. This time the prizes were won by the following teams: 1st place Ilves (Finland), 2nd place RFS (Latvia), 3rd place FM Audra (Lithuania). The following young talents have been awarded with individual awards: Best Striker - Hammarby Sweden Nr.13 Lioneli Garcia, Best Midfielder - RFS Riga Latvia Nr.21 Martins Sekkans, Best Defender - Ilves Finland Nr.85 Eemil Musu, Best Goalkeeper - FM Audra Lithuania Nr.1 Vykintas Rūkštelė. We are glad that not only many teams from foreign countries and Lithuania come to the tournament, but also the fans have become much more active after a long period of the pandemic. We hope that next weekend we will have the same mood on the fields and on the platforms for fans - the Ateitis CUP 2022 Spring U10 and U9 tournaments are waiting for us.
