Wat een trofeeTime for the famous Financial Football tournament. Saturday June 6th the event will be held again. As always the 7-a-side matches will be played just outside Amsterdam in the little city of Abcoude, on the fields of FC Abcoude.

It’s amazing the tournament has never been skipped in the last twelve years, somehow Bennington (Ferry Boekholt) has been able to find sponsors every year (remember it was once called All Options Football Tournament?). The sponsors this year are Euroclear and Eurex.

Sunny weather, a kidsclub childcare, food, beverages and an overall good atmosphere : get the teams together again. The event has evolved from a few local market makers into an increasingly international tournament. Last year it was Lynx winning the title after beating Eurex Frankfurt on penalties.

The contribution this year is €600 per team. You can find more information here, don’t hesitate to contact Ferry directly  if you have any questions.

The 13th edition

Made a list of the past winners of the tournament. Somewhere along the way we’ve made a mistake in counting the edition of the tournament. This year isn’t the 12th edition of the tournament like it is called in the official invitation, it’s the 13th. The tradition is even older than we thought.
