Detailed Information

The IberCup Christmas is the winter edition of the prestigious IberCup youth football tournament series.

Taking place near Lisbon, Portugal, it promises to host an array of good level teams who will compete for first place across a range of age categories. A smaller edition in size compared to the more famous easter and summer events, it still guarantees a very good level of competition, which has become sort of a trademark of IberCup events around the world. 

Arrival day is 17 December 2023 and departure day is evening of 21 December 2023 or, upon requesting specific approval from the tournament management, morning of 22 December 2023.

By attending this tournament, included in the participation fee, you’ll receive:

– Accommodation for the entire tournament in hotel-style lodging;
– Full board across the week;
– Local public transport and/or reimbursement of Uber rides to and from games;
– Referee Abroad merchandise;
– Games with assistants and fourth officials, and possibility of using communication headsets;
– Finals in stadiums / possibility of appearing on live TV;
– A fantastic week of refereeing, friends, and fun!

All referees over the age of 16 are welcome to apply for the Ibercup Christmas.

Please note – if you are under the age of 18 you will need to travel with a responsible adult or have a full waiver signed by your parents/guardians sent to us before you travel.

The experience package includes accommodation in a good quality local hotel in the Cascais/Estoril area.

More details and the exact name of the establishment will be available in due course.

Cascais is a small beach town in Portugal in the greater Lisbon area. A former residence of the royal family and pioneer of tourism in Portugal, it is a very charming village.

Dominated by the bay and the imposing Cidadela fort, the historic centre is brimming with architectural treasures of a religious, military and civil nature. Likewise, the museums of the Sea, Casa das Histórias de Paula Rego, and the Municipal Museum Condes de Castro Guimarães are also must-see attractions.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, lies only minutes away and offers all the delights you’d expect of Portugal’s star attraction, yet with half the fuss of other European capitals. Gothic cathedrals, majestic monasteries and quaint museums are all part of the colourful cityscape, but the real delights of discovery lie in wandering the narrow lanes of Lisbon’s lovely backstreets.

The nearest international airport is Lisbon Airport (LIS).

It is the main air hub for TAP Portugal, a Star Alliance member airline that covers an extensive network throughout Europe, Africa and the Americas. There are also several other airlines flying into Lisbon from both European and non-European destinations.

The airport is a short metro+train ride away from where the tournament takes place or, in alternative, only about 20 minutes by car. Referees will be provided with a metro / train ticket or equivalent refund in order to reach Cascais.
