NorwayCup2020 Cancelled


A few moments ago, we received this message from our friends in Oslo.

‘Today came the dull message that we expected, but still feared. It is with sadness in our hearts that we have to cancel this year's Norway Cup.

As a result of the coronavirus, the authorities today decided to cancel all events with over 500 people until September 1st. Of course, this is something we respect in the dire situation the world is currently facing. Thus, there will be no football party at Ekebergsletta in 2020. We want all teams, participants, coaches, team leaders, parents, guardians and the public back to a solid folk party in 2021. We at the Norway Cup management are now working to find alternative and exciting solutions, and will come back with more information.’

Because of that we have to cancel all the participations. We hope to see you in Oslo in 2021 or on one of our other tournaments.
