My name is Slavik, I am from Lviv, Ukraine.
In June 2013 our NGO Karpaty ( www.gokarpaty.org ) will be holding
the traditional international fans’ tournament EUROFAN in Lviv (Ukraine) for the 7th consecutive year.
You can find many photos and videos from previous events on Facebook:
The dates: 20-23 June 2013.
On 20 June teams arrive in Lviv and check in hotels, also press conference and opening party will be held on 20 June;
the football tournament lasts three days, from 21 June till 23 June 2013.
Our tournament is rather a non-competitive one.
Professional or semi-professional players are not allowed.
Our motto might sound like this:
play some football, drink some beer,
make friends, have fun!
Tournament rules: 11-a-side teams,
32 teams will be divided into 8 qualifying groups with top two teams from each group
progressing to the playoff stage;
matches played in qualifying groups will have duration of 40 minutes (2 halves, 20 minutes each),
matches played in 1/8 and 1/4 of playoffs will have duration of 50 minutes (2 halves, 25 minutes each),
matches played in semifinals and final will have duration of 60 minutes (2 halves, 30 minutes each).
Number of substitutes is not limited.
Before every game we play national or clubs’ anthems, during games we arrange live comments and music (speakers are placed around the ground, DJ and commentators work with microphones).
Also we ask each participating team to send us in advance an entry fee in the amount of USD 200 (or EUR 150) as a guarantee of participation.
Depending on a hotel, its class, location and conditions, we offer up to 50% of discount on stay for all members of your delegation (the number of persons is not limited).
Normally cost of one night per one person in a good hotel is about 40-60 EUR.
So you pay about 20 EUR from one person per night.
During the tournament all invited teams will be accompanied by volunteers speaking in respective languages.
They will meet teams in Lviv, help in finding hotels, checking-in and be helpful in different situations.
Before the tournament there will be an opening party and after the tournament we organize a finishing party with
prizes and mementos for all tournament guests.
The final list of participants will include 32 National and club fans’ teams from all over Europe.
Herewith we officially invite national fans' team of Canada (The Voyageurs) to take part in the “EUROFAN-2013” fan-festival/tournament.
Looking forward to receiving your decision!
