The 2023 edition of the Europacopa Walking Football tournament will take place at Ferreiras Football Club on Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th April.

Forty teams and around 400 players will be involved, coming from nine different countries including, for the first time, Gibraltar and Lithuania. Well known names include Norwich City, Sheffield FC, Gainsborough Trinity, 1874 Northwich, Cardiff City and local side SC Farense. We noted that Sheffield, Gainsborough and Northwich are among the ten oldest Association Football clubs in the world.

There will be matches on six adjacent small size pitches starting at 1000am both days, with last games around 1700hrs. Matches are seven a side and played to the FA Walking Football rules. There will be two age groups, 50+ and 60+. Several teams have women among their numbers.

Admission is free, clubhouse bar open all day. Covered seating is available if it rains.

Europacopa has a Facebook page where you can find more information.

Ferreiras Football Club is located in the centre of the village near the concrete factory. Large free car park outside. Giro buses 5 and 11 to and from Albufeira town stop 200 metres from the ground.
