Age Category, Dispensation & Age Control
This U16 boys tournament accepts players born after 01.01.2008. We do offer dispensation for up to 3 players who are one year over the age limit, but only a maximum of 2 can play simultaneously. Age verification will be conducted throughout the tournament at various points, based on your arrival.
Matches will consist of 2 halves of 20 minutes each. All teams are set to play 6 matches in the span of 3 days, on our artificial grass pitches.
Who May Participate
Our tournament is a top-level competition. Teams participating should be from the highest or second highest level of their country. We do not accept lower level teams in our tournament.
Number of Teams in the Tournament
The NOVIO TALENT CUP can accommodate up to 16 teams. Our aim is to create four groups, each comprising four teams, with one top-tier team in each group.
When Does the Registration Open
Preregistration starting from September 1st, we will open registration to all other interested teams. Our goal is to finalize the tournament lineup by the end of January 2024.
We provide accommodation at 4-star hotels in the vibrant city of Nijmegen and its surroundings. Room choices encompass single, twin, triple, and, upon request, quadruple rooms. Please be aware that if quadruple rooms are accessible, they will be exclusive to one particular hotel. Although we value your hotel preferences, the ultimate decision lies within our discretion.
Transfers (Airport & Tournament)
Prices do not include transfers. If required, your team can book an airport transfer as well as tournament transfers. Please be advised that tournament hotels are not located within walking distance from the tournament venues, making transfers necessary.
We offer tournament packages for stays of 3 nights. Should your team be interested in staying longer, we can assist with that. Previous teams have extended their stay for tournament preparation, with custom packages including training sessions and friendly matches.
Upon booking, teams will receive 2 invoices. The first one, covering 25% of the total booking amount, is due within 8 days of the invoice date. The second payment, covering the remaining 75% of the total booking amount, should be paid 8 weeks prior to arrival.
Due to the high level of our tournaments, team cancellations within the last 3 months are not accepted, meaning all fees paid are non-refundable.
Teams are expected to arrange their own insurance.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Novio Talent Cup.
