Over 80 participants from 8 countries! The legacy of UEFA EURO 2012 is still alive in Poznań!

The EUROASMUS AND FRIENDS CUP, inaugurated in 2012, will take place for the 10th time this year!

On Thursday, 12 October, at 9 a.m., on the football pitch of the POSiR Rataje Centre

Who will be victorious in 2023?

Teams shall represent specific countries (at least four players must be citizens of that country). Only 1 team can represent an exact country.

During the last edition, held in 2022, teams from Lebanon, Uzbekistan, Algeria, India, France, Spain, Portugal and Poland. After fierce battles, Algeria and Poland finally faced each other in the final. After a match lasting 2 x 8 minutes and scoring four goals, the red-and-white team could finally lift the cup for the best team, winning 4:0. The game for third place, which saw France and Portugal facing each other, turned out to be even more challenging. After a regular time, the scoreboard read 1:1, meaning a penalty shoot-out. In the final penalty shoot-out, France had the edge, scoring one more goal and eventually winning 1:1 (5:4).

We play together, we cheer together, we celebrate together!
