The Foyle Cup is one of Ireland, and indeed Europe's, annual premier youth soccer tournaments.
The competition began in 1992 with only eight teams competing. It is seen as one of the most important and pivotal tournaments in Northern Ireland, as it presents an opportunity for the youth of Northern Ireland to show their abilities.
Academy teams of such European clubs as Werder Bremen, IFK Göteborg and Ferencvaros have participated in the tournament, along with teams from the U.S. and Canada in recent times. It is widely recognised as a tournament that launches the careers of young players aspiring to sign professional contracts.
