Polders Trophy International youth football tournament

Gistel Belgium

Sports Park De Kegge serves as the venue for the Polders Trophy, a international youth football tournament that stands out for  its relaxed atmosphere and professional allure. The tournament organisers are highly motivated and apply the same drive to everything they do – whether it is the competition itself, the famous and amazing musical opening to the tournament, the attention to detail in meals or the closing party, the enthusiasm is palpable! It is also quite infectious, inviting all the teams at this international youth football tournament to have a wonderfully sporty and relaxed weekend. 


KEG Gistel

The Polders Trophy is organised by KEG Gistel. The club was founded in 1922 and promoted in 2000 to the fourth highest national division in Belgium, where it played for four years. In 2004 the club changed its structure and started all over again at the bottom of the provincial level. Their first team is now playing 3rd "Provinciale". KEG Gistel has 18 teams in competition and about 250 youth players. The KEG Gistel youth board has new and fresh ideas and is fully ready for this international tournament.


De Kegge Sports Park is the home base of KEG Gistel. During Whitsun the participants have three full size grass pitches, one small grass pitch, changing rooms and a canteen at their disposal.
