Christchurch International Cup

The 2020 Christchurch International Cup is well on its way to becoming the premier junior and youth football event in Australasia.

In 2019 we welcomed over 1000 players from 9 to 14 years old from around New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region, along with their supporters.

The state-of-the-art facility at the Christchurch Football Centre created the perfect backdrop for team to test themselves against some of the best players in their age-groups.

We invite you to compete for the fantastic trophies and the Christchurch International Cup title, while enjoying our Kiwi hospitality and the jaw-dropping scenery of the Canterbury region.
