Helsinki Cup in a nutshell

Helsinki Cup has been organised since 1976 and the tournament has established its place as a significant part of summer in Helsinki. In 2020, we will celebrate the 45th edition of the tournament, the exact dates being the 6th to 11th of July.

The basic idea and ideology behind Helsinki Cup has remained the same throughout its history. First of all, Helsinki Cup is a tournament for both genders – both boys and girls are warmly welcome to Helsinki Cup! Secondly, Helsinki Cup is an international tournament and we have around 20 different nationalities participating in the tournament each year. Helsinki Cup also wants to highlight tolerance within the football community and thus all participants are equal and important to us. Together we are better!

Helsinki Cup has been part of childhood for many national and international stars regardless of where they act – be it in the field of sports or in another field of society. 

Playing and being together in our tournament has given participants unforgettable memories and important skills for the future across the years.

Helsinki Cup is a huge tournament with over 20 000 participants every year. There are around 100 fields being used during the tournament week and we are spread all around Helsinki. The city comes alive during the tournament, which is held during the Finnish holiday season. All of the children together with their families and relatives guarantee great visibility for the tournament throughout the city.

Helsinki Cup 2020 is held from July 6th until July 11th 2020
