The Hughes Insurance Foyle Cup is a truly international soccer tournament, which began in 1992 and has become Ireland’s largest tournament. In 2012, 164 teams competed, with teams travelling from all over Ireland, Britain, Europe, Canada and America to compete. Teams compete at under 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 19s. There are also mini soccer competitions for under 10 and 11s. Last year saw the first ever ladies’ event with four teams competing and it is intended to attract more ladies’ entries in 2013.
The event takes place all over the city and includes venues in Strabane, Limavady and Donegal. The 2013 finals will be staged at Brandywell (home of Derry City FC) and the Riverside Stadium (home of Institute FC).
