How the Mini-EC works

1) You register for the tournament. About 8 weeks before the tournament we will ask you for your 3 preferred nations.

2) If possible, we will then allocate the participating European Championship nations to the teams according to their wishes. If there are several teams with the same wishes, then the draw will decide.

3) Dress up and dress down according to your assigned European Championship nation so that we can celebrate a colourful football festival!

Fun & action off the pitch

There will be plenty of diversion off the pitch. Test your skills at our BALLFREUNDE play stations! While on the pitch you will have to perform as a team, we will also test your individual skills at our BALLFREUNDE game stations. How hard is your shot? How good is your aim? The goal-scoring speed machine, football darts, the goal wall, bubble football and more are waiting for you.
