We are now starting to receive some more details on the upcoming Albufeira Walking Football Cup 2018, the third edition of this prestigious tournament.
The event will be held on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th March 2018, at the Estadio Nora in Ferreiras (see map below).
At the moment it is looking like a full day on the Monday, and a part day on the Tuesday, with an evening meal on the Monday night.
There will be two tournaments running concurrently, with 9 teams in the 50+ category (including three from us at EAWF, two from our friends the Silver Coast Strollers from Lisbon, and Sheffield United, Oxford United, Brackley Saints, and TG Algarve 18 Cambridge Walkers from the UK). There will also be a 58+ tournament with teams from EAWF, Browns SC, Lagos/Boavista, and Brackley Saints.
Both tournaments will be 7-a-side, 3-touch walking football on natural grass pitches (50×30 m).
All of this is still liable to change, and the format etc. has yet to be decided; we will bring you more news as we get it from the organisers
