A match eagerly awaited by all young footballers from all corners of France. Due to its longevity and its ability to renew itself, the Cahors tournament has become essential during this Easter weekend.
For three days, on the grounds of the Pierre Ilbert complex in Terre Rouge, 800 young players, ages 11 and 12, are expected, as well as 150 educators and around thirty official referees.
“This is an important moment in the life of the club and the volunteers who will work hard to welcome visitors and introduce them to our beautiful region. The tournament represents long months of preparation with contact with the teams, accommodation, reception, catering and the sporting part.
Guy Dos Santos, responsible for the Holy Week tournament, once again prepared this event with great care. “It is a job involving a lot of contact with clubs, partners, communities and volunteers, but it is always a great pleasure when the teams arrive on Friday afternoon and leave satisfied with their stay.” In this edition, 64 teams will compete (four more than last year) with a new sports formula: 16 groups of 4 teams (in 2023 there were 12 groups of 5 teams) with direct qualification for the three tournaments C1, C2 and C3.
Another novelty this year is the first participation of a women’s team with Clermont Foot that will compete against the boys.
Facing the headliners of this 2024 edition, Nice, Monaco, Clermont and Auxerre, the Lot teams will be more numerous than usual. There will be 13 who will participate with the secret hope that some will reach the C1 tournament (24 teams).
Above all, it will be an opportunity for the Lotois to compete against very good teams from all leagues.
