In his 6th holding, the International Swiss U16 Cup took place in Ruggell, a little village in the Principality of Liechtenstein, for the first time. Like in the past years, numerous youth teams from european top clubs participated in the tournament. The spectators enjoyed football on a very high level during four days. Surprisingly, neither a german nor a swiss team classified among the top three. Manchester City celebrated a tight 2-1 victory over VfL Wolfsburg and saved the third place. With Liverpool, who lost the final 1-0 after extra time, another English team reached the top three. The biggest surprise of the tournament was the special guest team from Sierra Leone. The guys from Africa, which played an incredible tournament at a physically and technically very high level, won the tournament as the first non-european team in the history of the International Swiss U16 Cup.


WINNER SPECIAL GUEST SIERRA LEONE

Despite the pouring rain at the award ceremony, the players of all teams applauded their colleagues together with the many spectators. The disappointment of the losing team was very obvious, but nevertheless the pride over their own performance and the joy of new friendships prevailed.
The 6th International Swiss U16 Cup brought top international youth football to the principality of Liechtenstein. The matches from thursday to sunday attracted various scouts, who have made their notes. The experiences of recent tournaments have shown that one or the other player that performed well at the International Swiss U16 Cup is going to sign a contract with a professional club.

During four days almost 4000 spectators visited the 5th International Swiss U16 Cup in Bad Ragaz. The first rounds were dominated by the Germans and by FC Basel. Surprisingly no English team could qualify for the semifinals. VfB Stuttgart defeated Bayer Leverkusen (4:0) and FC Basel won against Werder Bremen (2:0). The final between Stuttgart and Basel was thrilling and at a very high level. A free kick goal for Stuttgart made them win the Cup for the second time.


WINNER VFB STUTTGART

Already on Thursday the Special Guest Team from Sudan surprised the crowd with their draw against Newcastle United and a victory over Liechtenstein. After a good start into the tournament the Sudanese weren’t in a position to keep on playing on the same level. With a defeat against the Americans, the Special Guest Team (10th rank) bowed out. Its appearance was a big enrichment for the International Swiss U16 Cup.
