Here at DB Sports Tours, we are proud to announce details for the 5th edition of theChampions Cup coming to you in 2016, being held at Armagh City FC ground on Sunday the 27th of December. The Champions Cup is at the cornerstone of our work here at DB Sports Tours and has been said the competition is now heading for its 6th edition. With each new edition the tournament has been refined and improved upon, in order for all participants to gain as much as possible from taking part. The Champions Cup looks to bring the very best of all of Ireland’s elite youth footballers together. The SFAI’s (Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland) best take on their Northern Ireland counterparts in the best of NIFBA (Northern Ireland Boy Football Association).
The competition hosts matches at four separate age groups: (under-13, under-14, under-15, and under-16). The age group represents a match between the very best from both the SFAI and NIFBA. The game will be 30 minutes a half at all ages, with 5 minute break in between each half. If the games finish a draw there will be no extra time the games will go straight to penalties.
