Argentina, Spain U-23 to be part of Sait Nagjee Amarsee Int’l Tournament

Monday, October 12, 2015

Kozhikode: Argentina U-23 and Spain U-23 national teams would be part of the eight teams to participate in Sait Nagjee Amarsee International Football Tournament scheduled from January 20 to February 7 2016 at EMS Stadium, Kozhikode, Kerala.

Levante UD (Spain), Hertha Berlin (Germany), TSV 1860 Munchen (Germany), CA River Plate (Argentina), Corinthians Paulista (Brazil) and a top I-League team (which will be soon confirmed) would be the remaining teams of the tournament.  This was declared during the tournament launch by the Kozhikode District Football Association (KDFA) where Supersub Management has been appointed as the official agency to rope in foreign teams.

It is an effort by KDFA to revive the tournament after it was last played in 1995, where JCT Mills were the winner. All participating teams would be reserve teams of the respective club and country. The tournament would be played in league cum knock-out format, where four teams would be placed in each group. After playing with each other once, top two from each group will make it to semi-final which would be followed by final.

Winners of the tournament will take away prize money of USD 30,000 while runners-up will be richer by USD 15,000. There would also be individual awards for player of the tournament, best striker, best goalkeeper etc.
