Twenty-two years full of satisfactions have led to an incredible result: 108 teams from all over the world, who have already registered four months before the start of the tournament, and which make the Gallini Cup the largest football tournament in Italy.
An important detail is that due to time and space limits, the organization no longer accept local teams (except those that make their stadium available to play the tournament) and therefore more than 70% of the participants are international.
The numbers are really impressive, with players and parents from Brazil, Japan, South Africa, USA and almost all of Europe.
The Gallini Cup becomes the largest football tournament in Italy.
But do you know what makes the Gallini tournament absolutely unique?
In each qualifying group there is a top team. This means that all the participants will have the chance to play against a Champions League team (Atalanta, Dinamo Zagreb), Serie A (Bologna, Udinese, Hellas Verona, Spal, Brescia, Empoli), Premier League (Watford, West Ham) Uefa League (FK Partizan, Ferencvaros) or Serie B (Chievo Verona, Venezia FC, Pordenone).
These are just some of the important names that will take part to the next edition, scheduled in Pordenone from 10 to 13 April 2020.
In short, Pordenone capital of youth football, not only thanks to the splendid work of Pordenone Calcio and its academies, but also thanks to Gallini, which has become the largest football tournament in Italy.
