Welcome to MADCUP 2022, in collaboration with the Atlético de Madrid Academy!

MADCUP is much more than just a sports project. Our mission is to connect sport with culture, education and values in the soccer capital of the world.

Madrid, recently named the World Capital of Sport 2022, will become the world center for youth soccer, hosting the biggest celebration of international youth sports.

For this second edition, we hope that the health crisis situation will continue to improve so that we are able to come together to compete with international teams from all around the world.

With categories ranging from U8 to U16 in the boys’ section, and U12, U14 and U16 categories in the girls’ section, all participants will enjoy a festival of soccer. The tournament will feature players from Spain and abroad, including teams from the Atlético de Madrid Academy.

MADCUP is an international youth soccer tournament, offering a unique opportunity for participants to express their passion for soccer. In this exciting competition, they will feel like real professional soccer players. The main venue will be the Ciudad Deportiva Wanda, Atlético Madrid’s training ground and academy in Alcalá de Henares, and for the 2021 edition we employed VAR (Video Assistant Referee) technology in many of the U16 matches.

In the medium term, MADCUP will become the biggest international tournament in the world. With the full support and collaboration of various partner organizations, the tournament will pay particular attention to values education and principles such as effort, hard work and the capacity for self-improvement, as well as contributing towards achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
