Norway Cup is held annually in week 31 in central Oslo. It all started in 1972 with 420 teams and 8 400 participants at Ekebergsletta.
The tournament is a multicultural arena that is open to all regardless of their background. We have always put a big emphasis on playing an active role in building bridges between children and youth across cultures and background. Our goal is to be one of the world’s most important events for friendship, the joy of sports and connecting young people from different cultures and nationalities.
Over the years, players, coaches and referees from 127 nations have participated in Norway Cup. In 2017, 1908 teams from 45 nations all travelled to Oslo for a week filled with football, friendship and fun.
Norway Cup still has its base on Ekebergsletta, but as the tournament has grown, we have partnered up with other arenas in Oslo. Now there are around 6000 games played every year at seven different arenas, with a total of 89 fields, all over Oslo.
But Norway Cup is so much more than just football! At Ekebergsletta, our participants can have fun in an area filled with a carnival, a Fun Park and lots of great stands with fun activities from our partners.
With free public transport all week and free entrance to many of Oslo’s attractions through our participants cards, participants can spend the week exploring everything that Oslo has to offer!
