Saturday 30th and Easter Sunday 31st March 2024

The Paris International Cup is held over two days. Each age group tournament will have both group matches and finals matches. Following the group matches, depending on your results, your team will then play in either the International Cup Play Offs and Finals or the Shield Competition or Plate Competition Play Offs and Finals.

At the conclusion of the tournament, we will hold the Awards Ceremony, when all teams will be presented with their tournament trophy and all players will receive their commemorative medal and tournament certificate. The overall winners in each age group will also receive The Paris International Cup Winners Trophy.

Special Dispensation

French Football Federation age groups are organised from 1st January – 31st December, however we have received special dispensation for teams from National Associations who employ different group qualification dates (i.e. from 1st September as per the English FA) that their domestic age levels will be accepted. This means that teams will participate in the age group that they play during the 2023/2024 season

Squad Sizes and Playing Times

Format Maximum squad size Tournament playing time
5-a-side 10 players minimum 120 minutes match time
7-a-side 14 players minimum 160 minutes match time
11-a-side 18 players minimum 200 minutes match time
Heading for goal


The Paris International Cup matches are held at the superb facilities available at nearby football clubs. These clubs are located within easy travel distance of the accommodation, Paris and Disneyland Paris.  As well as having the highest standards of pitches, they also offer great hospitality and facilities, including on-site changing rooms and catering.

The pitches at the clubs are a combination of both high quality natural grass and the latest generation artificial grass pitches.

On both Saturday and Sunday, you will spend around half the day at the pitches playing your tournament matches, meaning that on both days you will also have free time when you can choose to enjoy the facilities at your accommodation or watch the action at the pitches or even fit in some sightseeing.

Tournament Schedule, Rules and Live Results Website

All matches are officiated by FA or FFF qualified referees and full tournament management and support is provided by our event staff and Tournament Director. In addition, medical first aid services will be on-site at the pitches throughout the tournament.

The tournament match schedule and rules will be issued 4 weeks prior to the tournament in your Tournament Final Briefing Pack. During the tournament, you will then be able to follow the tournament results and your team’s progress through our live tournament fixtures and results website.
