Wales Challenge Cup, Prestatyn U7 to U16 Boys, U10 to U16 Girls

Wales Premier Youth Football Tournament

May Day Weekend Friday 30th April - Monday 3rd May 2021

Over the last few years the Wales Challenge Cup has grown into one of the biggest and most popular tournaments in Wales. With some first class pitches just a short walk from the accommodation, stadium football and a holiday park with numerous facilities, it is not hard to see why the Wales Challenge Cup continues to go from strength to strength.

The tournament is played at Prestatyn Town FC and Rhyl FC, which provide fitting venues for this excellent tournament.  Prestatyn Town is adjacent to the holiday park and just a short walk from your accommodation.  Both venues have the added advantage of a fantastic stadium pitch, which provide a unique opportunity for players and supporters.  Our spectacular presentation evening provides a wonderful finale to the event.  In the last few years we have welcomed some legends of the game including Ian Rush, Lee Sharpe, John Barnes and John Aldridge.

Prestatyn Sands nestles between the rolling hills of Wales and miles of award winning beaches. A tour here gives you the best of both worlds – relaxing in beautiful scenery and enjoying bags of fun activities throughout the day.

R&T Tours & Pontins are working together to bring you the greatest acts from all over the UK and beyond. We aim to bring you a selection of fantastic cabaret acts and spectacular football themed entertainment. With shows each and every night you and your team are guaranteed to be entertained.

With demand expected to be high for the 2021 season make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

Our tournaments are not just about the football - your players can gain valuable experience playing against a number of different teams, make friends, and who knows - maybe even take away some trophies!

REFEREES AT OUR TOURNAMENTS

We have built up a nucleus of quality referees that look forward to attending our events; many have been with us since our UK tournaments began. We will provide qualified referees throughout the competition, as well as qualified assistant referees for the finals. You will therefore be asked to put forward a volunteer assistant referee for the early round matches.

TOURNAMENT QUALIFICATION

In order to qualify for our tournaments, your team must be affiliated to a County or Schools FA. We DO NOT allow Representative, Football Academy, or Schools of Excellence teams to enter. However, individual players from such teams are allowed as 'guest players' within teams who are eligible to enter the tournament.

SCHEDULES

Football schedules, location of pitches, and all tournament information will be displayed on our score centre www.rtscores.co.uk approximately 7 days prior to the start of the tournament. It is extremely important to check this information beforehand.

FIRST AID AT FOOTBALL VENUES

Injuries unfortunately can happen, and when they do it is essential to have adequate first aid cover. We provide excellent first aid cover at all football venues using the services of organisations such as St Johns Ambulance, Red Cross or other qualified medics.
