Due to Corona-virus, measures taken throughout the world and the consequences of these measures, the management of the International Marveld Tournament has decided to CANCEL the tournament on 5 till 7 June 2020.
This decision was taken on Thursday March 19. The uncertainty about developments to come makes it impossible to organize a good and financial healthy tournament. Furthermore, despite not having received any cancellations yet from the participating teams yet, it will stay for a long time uncertain whether the teams from Brazil, the United States, Spain, Germany, Czech and the Netherlands really can come.
It is a pity that this year we will not see the best U15 teams from over the world in Groenlo. So no FC Barcelona, Ajax, Feyenoord, Palmeiras, PSV, FC Dallas, Slavia Prague, AZ, Schalke 04, Atlético Madrid and Red Bull Bragantino at our sports accommodation. And a disappointment of course also for the players of s.v. Grol who cannot compete this year against the stars of the future. But health is now priority number one at the moment.
Also the sponsor event at Thursday June 4 2020 for all sponsors of the club s.v. Grol and all sponsors of the Marveld Tournament is canceled.
We want to thank the teams, sponsors and our volunteers for the collaboration so far. We hope that together we can start soon with a lot of enthusiasm with the preparations for the next top edition at June 4, 5 and 6, 2021. Also we hope to welcome then again a lot of spectators.
