FIFPro president Leonardo Grosso and members of the FIFPro board Wednesday assisted with the draw for the seventh FIFPro Tournament, to be played in Rijnsburg, The Netherlands on 16 and 17 July.


Each summer FIFPro organizes the FIFPro Tournament to help footballers without a contract find a new professional club. FIFPro invites clubs, scouts and technical directors to see the players in action. It is up to the players to show their best in an effort to find a new professional football club, just like many of their colleagues have done during previous FIFPro Tournaments.


This year’s edition of the FIFPro Tournament has a new format. On Saturday 16 July, the first day, seven teams will each play two matches. All results of these seven matches will lead to one table.


On Sunday, the winner of Saturday’s competition will play a match against Almere City FC, a team from the Dutch second division, and play a full 90-minute match.


The six other teams will play one more group match to define their position on the final table. The draw for these three matches will be done on Saturday evening. 


This year, Holland and Italy will kick off the tournament. Last year’s winners, France, meet Denmark.
