The biggest eastern youth football tournament “Ateitis CUP” sees new unseen visitors. For the first time, in the tournaments history a team from India travels to compete in the tournament.

“We’ve had offers from other teams from different continents showing interest in the tournament, but they never escalated beyond talks. The team from Mumbai put in a lot of effort to come for our tournament and we are grateful for that. I’ll be honest, up until the last minute, we weren’t sure if they would really come. Goes to show how far this tournament has come”,- Dainius Gudaitis, the main tournament organizer.

“Ateitis CUP” U-11 will start this week on Friday. A total of 40 teams will compete with known teams  like Liverpool, Dinamo Tbilisi, Nizhnyj Novgorod and many more.
