Move Sports tournament organisation expertise to expand to handball, basketball

Few rugby fans worldwide are unaware of Move Sports, even less so of Portugal Rugby Youth Festival: just ask the 3000 boys and girls from 118 teams coming from all around the globe that competed in PRYF's 11th edition, last April.

The same can be said about football fans: our more recent, but still popular youth football tournament, Lisbon Football Youth Cup, had its 3rd edition in 2019, having hosted 25+ teams and 600+ players, both boys and girls, from Portugal, northern Europe and China.

Nevertheless, we usually hear "I wish you would do a [insert your favourite sport here] tournament, that would be awesome!"

That's why today we're extremely pleased to announce three new competitions that will make two great sports communities - basketball and handball fans - very happy. The new Move Sports' tournaments, making their début in 2020, are Lisbon Basketball Youth Cup, Lisbon Handball Youth Cup and Portugal Handball Legends Cup. All three events will take place in what will certainly be recalled as a fabulous month of June 2020, under the warm and sunny late spring in Lisbon.

 

Play your best basketball in exciting Lisbon

Lisbon Basketball Youth Cup is a new basketball tournament aimed at boys and girls in the U14, U16 and U18 age groups, to be played in Lisbon, on June 13-14, 2020.

This event presents a great opportunity for teams from clubs, academies and schools all around the world to compete. We want Lisbon Basketball Youth Cup to be a fun and exciting competition between different countries, each one with its unique "style" of basketball.

Don't miss the once-in-a-lifetime chance of being part of the foundation of something truly great! Learn more and register your team today at www.lisbonbasketballcup.com.

 

Play your best handball in safe, friendly Lisbon

Like its rugby, football and basketball "brothers", Lisbon Handball Youth Cup is a new handball tournament aimed at boys (U12 | U12 | U16 | U18) and girls (U11 | U13 | U15 | U17), to be played in Lisbon, on June 20-21, 2020.

This event is also open to teams from clubs, academies and schools. With players coming in from all over the globe, this Cup will turn out to be an exciting meeting point for the worldwide handball community, a chance for intercultural exchange and a challenging, one-of-a-kind competition. Our goal is to get everyone behind this spectacular tournament. Together, we'll grow every year and became a worldwide reference for youth handball!

Be legendary in trendy, fashionable Lisbon

In case you were wondering: no, we don't organise events for young athletes only (although we love it)! At Move Sports, we cater to the needs of sportsmen and women of all ages. Just ask the 1500+ UN officials for whom we organised the Inter-Agency Games, back in May, or the hundreds of players who took part of the European Touch Senior Cup, this past October.

Now, we are putting our expertise at the service of handball senior players who want to take part in a competitive, high-level tournament. If you are one of those players, you don't want to miss the first edition of the Portugal Legends Handball Cup: this is the event that will bring together legendary players in an amazing and challenging competition taking place in Lisbon, June 5-7, 2020.

This veritable celebration of handball is open to women (age groups 33+ and 43+) and men (age groups 35+, 45+ and 50+) from every international club. Participants will get the chance to share fun and exciting moments with athletes from all over the world.

The Portugal Legends Handball Cup will be played at the Lisbon University Stadium on three different fields. The third field is a very special treat for seasoned handball players, one we think sets this event apart: it's an outdoor court bathed in natural light and, of course, with official handball size (40x20m) and markings! Competition aside, you won’t want to miss the opening party at the beach and closing gala dinner at very special - and still a secret... - venue in Lisbon.

Lisbon, Portugal: you don't want to miss the world's top destination

Whatever tournament makes your fancy, be it basketball or handball, youth or masters, we can promises you and your teammates two things: an expertly organised competition, right from the moment you set foot in Portuguese soil until you fly back home, wishing to come back soon; and loads of entertainment and a great experience in the world's very best city travel destination: Lisbon, Portugal.

Don't just take our word for it: Portugal has been considered the World's Best Destination and Lisbon the World's Leading City Break Destination in the 2019 edition of the World Travel Awards. That's no small feat!

It's no wonder as well: the cultural scene in today's Lisbon is a vibrant combination of old and new, as the ghosts of the city's grand past echo evocatively around its contemporary venues. The heart of Lisbon is filled with wide avenues, green trees, modernist-style buildings, mosaic decorations and numerous cafes. Lisbon is now one of the trendiest cities in the world.

The weather is excellent as well: Portugal boasts a temperate climate all year round with long hot summers, warm spring and autumn months and relatively mild winters. Lisbon and its surroundings are located in the coastal area, facing the Atlantic Ocean: how about a swim at the beach after your match has ended? Or a surf clinic to boost the team morale just before the tournament starts?

We can also assure you that safety is nothing to worry about in Portugal. According to the 2019 Global Peace Index, Portugal is the world's 3rd safest and most peaceful country, only behind New Zealand and Iceland.

Are you feeling welcomed already?

 

A sports complex for you to play at your best

All three Lisbon Basketball Youth Cup, Lisbon Handball Youth Cup and Portugal Handball Legends Cup share one other thing in common, besides the immense passion for sports of everyone involved: every tournament will take place at the beautiful Lisbon University Stadium, known as one of the best and biggest sports complexes in the city of Lisbon.

The Lisbon University Stadium is located only 5 km from the Lisbon International Airport and every accommodation facility we provide is nearby. This venue provides multiple fields with official sizes and markings for various sports and ample support equipment, from athletes' changing rooms to public-facing facilities.

Then there’s Move Sports: we've been working with clubs, schools, academies and companies worldwide since 2006, having delivered more than 2000 memorable training camps & sports tours, tournaments and corporate events for clients from 125 nationalities. You can count on our professionalism for all the essentials, but expect us to always be on the lookout for that extra detail that brings joy and delight!

Everything is ready. Let the games begin!
