        Pictures please! Oh, and… refs!

          56 teams will participate in our Easter Tournament, and as we speak the last places are taken by some (very) late teams :-) As a nice warm-up and introduction of the teams, we would like you to post on the Facebook event-page ( a picture of your team, and in the description:

          – the name of your team
          – the category you’re participating in
          – one fun fact or interesting fact about your club/team

          The team which gets the most likes will get a special surprise on Friday evening. Don’t forget to share the event with your team members! So promote your team, club and friends! :-)

          We also have a question for you: if there’s a referee who wants to come along: every referee who leads games on both Saturday and Sunday, gets a bed-and-breakfast, official referee shirt, a couple of drink-and-meal tickets per day, and a free invitation to the exclusive Saturday evening VIP diner (which is normally 150 euro per person).

          We’re currently in the last preparations of the tournament, soon we will release an email with the latest information, an updated FAQ, and tournament schedules.

          We are ready, we hope you are too! :-)

          Party theme = Superheroes!

            For those who have missed the vote on our Facebook page: the theme of the Saturday evening party is Superheroes (yes, we know, the same as in 2012, but alas, such is the vote of the people!). So make sure you bring your spandex, oversized panties to go on top, masks, wigs, and all the paraphernalia one could find useful.

            It’s going to be one hell of a party!

            Vote for the Saturday evening party theme!

              You might not have noticed, but on our Facebook page, we’ve got a vote going on!

              We asked what our party theme should be, and so far people have come up with the following suggestions:
              1. Far West
              2. Baywatch
              3. Wanted dead or alive
              4. Animals
              5. Superheroes
              6. Cavemen
              7. Minions (as in Despicable Me)

              The contest is open till Friday midnight. The theme with the most likes wins, and among the voters (no matter which theme you voted for) we will give out a voucher for twenty cocktails!
              So go to our FB page on, and get your vote out!

              Comments Off on Attendees


                When we go to a tournament, we’re always pretty curious about who will be there too. Therefore, we will soon be adding a page with all of the attendees, and clubs who have registered so far. That way, you can plan to meet up with other clubs, or stirr up things a bit so your favourite club does show up as well.

                Stay tuned!
