Porto International Cup - Porto, Portugal
The Porto International Cup is the newest emerging tournament in Portugal.
Played over the Easter weekend in the beautiful city of Oporto, in the north of Portugal, it sees participation of a mix of professional and non-professional teams from Portugal and beyond in the U11, U13, U15, U17 and U19 boys and girls categories.
Referee Abroad will work with the Porto International Cup for the 1st time in 2023 in what promises to be yet another great event.
Arrival and departure dates: 05/04/2023 – 09/04/2023
Around 20 international referees will attend the Porto International Cup thanks to Referee Abroad. They will work alongside local Portuguese colleagues.
Accommodation for all referees will be provided from one day before the tournament starts (from April 5th), to one day after (April 9th). Games will be played on April 6th, 7th and 8th.
Referees will officiate 3-4 games per day, alternating between referee and AR. They will also get some free time to visit the city. Meals will be provided to all referees from dinner on the day of arrival to breakfast on the day of departure.
All referees over the age of 16 are welcome to apply for the Porto International Cup.
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.
Referees will be accommodated in a 4* Hotel in the city of Porto.
While the name of the hotel will be confirmed only at a later stage, hotels used in the past were, for example, the Premium Hotel Porto Maia.
Referees will share rooms with one or two other referees.
Porto might be the second-largest city in the country after Lisbon, but it is not the second best! 280 km north of Lisbon, the beautiful city of Porto lies along the Douro river. Home to Port wine, street art, and “francesinhas”, Porto is one of the world’s top 100 cities with the most international visitors. Over 1 million tourists visit Porto every year, as well as thousands of digital nomads and remote workers looking to make the city a temporary home.
One of the oldest cities in Europe, Porto has several famous historical attractions and monuments you cannot miss. Better yet – most of them are within walking distance of each other and located in the historic center, proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here are our top 6 historical attractions and monuments to visit in Porto.
Porto International Airport is Portugal’s second busiest airport after Lisbon. It has flights with all major European airlines, including low-cost carriers, Ryanair and Easyjet, to most European countries and destinations. It even features some intercontinental flights.
If flights to Porto prove difficult to find (but it shouldn’t be the case!), one can always think about landing in Lisbon and make the onward journey by train or bus. Porto is only 3 hours away from the capital, and you’d get the opportunity of visiting both cities in one go.
