The Easter holidays in Majorca is one of the best times of year on the island. With a few days off to relax just as temperatures begin to rise once again to a delightful level, tourists and locals can hit some of the world’s most beautiful beaches or take a stroll through the prestigious Tramuntana mountain range that adorns the North of the island. Alternatively there’s the possibility to watch some of the world’s potential superstars at a football tournament featuring the top youth talent from England, Scotland, Spain and Italy. For football lovers, what better way to brighten up your family holiday in Santa Ponsa, home to three of our Gran Isla hotels, than to spend an afternoon admiring the next Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar gracing a football pitch in the Mediterranean.
What is the Santa Ponsa Cup…
The Santa Ponsa Cup is a youth football competition featuring the U12’s and U10’s age groups that takes in Majorca. This year’s tournament is the fourth edition and is set to take place over the Easter weekend from Thursday 17th – Sunday 21st April 2019. It’s an opportunity for some of the brightest youngster on the continent to come together at one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean. Santa Ponsa is not only the home to this prestigious youth cup, but also to a stunning natural landscape surrounded by some of the nicest beaches in Majorca. What better place for a tournament of its kind boasting some of the world’s best players for their age.
Who’s can you expect to see…
Previous tournaments have boasted some of the best teams from around Europe and this season is no different with a few extra surprises. At this year’s tournament, you can find academies from the Premier League (Manchester City), La Liga (Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Valencia amongst others), Serie A (Parma and Bologna), a wealth of local teams and the surprise entry of Rossvale Boys Club.
The Scottish U12’s team located on the outskirts of Glasgow were invited to the tournament after their coach persuaded organisers with videos of his team whilst on holiday in Majorca. Whether the youngsters can compete against some of the top football academies in Europe is doubtful, but what an underdog story it would be if they could pull off a shock victory.
