The tournament will take place at the 30th and 31st of july
2010. Why on this date? Because our experience is that clubs
like a high quality tournament in pre-season. These two days
fit best with most European top competitions. Clubs can combine
a tournament with a training camp. Clubs are in general obliged
to be present on Friday, although exceptions can probably
be made. Two nights of accommodation are needed.
Sport accommodation "Lytse Trije" in Sexbierum.
All tournament matches will take place on the two pitches
of this accommodation. Friendly matches and training will
also be organized at surrounding sports accommodations.
CLUB SELECTION PRINCIPALS
At the AVC Tournament the most important thing is to have
a high quality line-up, not a high quantity line-up. In general
all clubs must participate at the highest level of their respective
country. There are three exceptions.
1. The host AVC Sexbierum will play the tournament.
2. Clubs from the second level of Germany, England, Sweden,
Norway and France are also allowed to participate.
3. The tournament committee can give one Wild Card to a
team normally not allowed. This can be a national team, a
selection team or a regional team.
Clubs will play 3 or 4 matches of 40 to 45 minutes, dependent
on the number of teams that will participate. We strife for
a line-up with between 8 and 12 teams. Apart from the tournament
AVC can help arrange matches against different strengths of

ACTIVITIES SURROUNDING THE TOURNAMENT
On Saturday AVC will probably organize a prize-giving ceremony
in the Village Hall. This will be an evening where the different
top teams can exchange their views on the women's game and
of course have some fun and dancing.
The different games of the tournament will be guided by high
level of arbitration. There will be Dutch FA official referees
and assistant referees. All referees will at least be of Dutch
women's premier league level.
