02 Tournament Info

The International Youth Festival of Football Tournament has been organised to be suitable for a range of junior age groups
and abilities. There will be both The International Cup and Shield Competition for each age group to ensure teams are closely matched and to provide a competitive, safe and enjoyable experience for all involved.

We will once again be joined at the Festival by several French clubs from Paris and the surrounding regions, as well as by teams from across Europe and even further afield. As a professionally organised tournament, young players will enjoy and benefit from their matches being officiated by experienced, qualified referees.

Every team will play Tournament matches on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On Monday and Tuesday, teams will participate in the Pool matches, which will then determine the teams’ participation in either the International Cup or Shield Competition.The Play-Offs and Finals for both the International Cup and Shield Competition in each age group will then be played on Wednesday.

Please note that the Tournament is open to boys teams at all ages and girls teams at Under 13 and Under 15 age groups. Mixed teams can enter the Under 10 and Under 11 boys tournaments. All matches are played in accordance with French Football Federation age-group laws. A full copy of the Tournament rules will be distributed to all teams prior to the Festival.

04 Transport and Accommodation

Travel Arrangements

We are pleased to offer all groups of 40 or more paying passengers the exclusive use of their own 48 or 49 seater coach for the entire duration of the Festival. Groups of less than 40 paying passengers will be allocated a shared coach with another school or club for their travel arrangements for the duration of the Festival to ensure they have no coach under-occupancy charge to pay.

Accommodation

Specifically chosen for its suitability for junior sports teams, Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch offers cabin style accommodation, with each cabin containing one double bed in one bedroom and three or four single beds in a second bedroom. These spacious two-bedroom bungalow cabins can therefore accommodate up to six people (*For school teams it is best to plan your tour arrangements based on five sharing a cabin - for details see the Information Pack).  

Disneyland® Park and Walt Disney Studios Park

All attendees of the International Junior Festival of Football have a three day Hopper Ticket that will provide them with unlimited access to both Disneyland® Park and Walt Disney Studios® Park on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Therefore outside of the time devoted to football, everyone is free to enjoy both Disney® Parks, ensuring a packed itinerary throughout your time away.

Five Day Self-Drive Festival Arrangements

We appreciate that some schools and clubs may wish to make their own travel arrangements, either using their own coach or minibus or even travelling with families by car, therefore we are also offering the
Festival without Sport Experiences’ travel arrangements. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, you will need to travel between your accommodation, the Disney® Parks and the football pitches. You will therefore need to make your own arrangements for these
transfers.

Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch

Your accommodation throughout the tournament will be at Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch, just a 15-minute drive from the Disney® Parks.
