After a first edition in Labège in 2021, the Tolosa Cup returns ! The football tournament between Toulouse students will take place on Saturday April 23, 2022, in Quint-Fonsegrives, south-east of the Pink City. Here is all you need to know.
A mixed tournament in 8 against 8
So there will indeed be a second version! The Tolosa Cup will take place in Quint-Fonsegrives on April 23, 2022. The organizers, who already have around ten registered teams, hope have more than 15 on the day of the tournament.
“We are going to have a mixed tournament, on half-courts, with 8 players per team. We encourage students to make teams of all levels, because we also contact the BDEs, not only the FFSU teams which already have a good level. We don’t want to have a competitive tournament, that’s not the goal. The goal is for the students to have fun.”
“We try to ensure that all the schools in Toulouse are represented: Jean-Jaurès, the Capitol, but also those that are the most specialized…” The organizers summarize: ” as long as they are students who is playing, there is no problem, we welcome everyone! »
There will be two final stages, so that “the teams can play all day, whatever their result”. The tournament will start at 9:30 am to end around 5 p.m.
The nice boost of Quint-Fonsegrives
To carry out this second edition, the association RGL Sport Consult has been able to count on a strong ally: the Quint-Fonsegrives football club. “He will lend us two pitches. So that will make 4 pitches for us”, greets Vivien Cassan.
The Tolosa Cup 2022 will also benefit, and always thanks to the club, “of referees, because he is used to doing tournaments like that”.
“To register, there is just a form to fill out on our site. To be able to make the association live, organize the tournament and improve it each year, we charge for it. We tried to lower it as much as possible: it will be 100 euros per team. That’s why we advise students to be 10, like that, it’s 10 euros per student.”
Ambition for the future
On the side of the association that oversees the tournament, there is a long-term objective: “why not do it in other cities and, later, make a general tournament in France who would bring together all the winning teams? “.
Vivien Cassan affirms it: “it’s a project that we have in the back of our minds”. But for the time being, focus on this second edition which has, moreover, for partner, Eva Toulouse : it offers an immersion en virtual reality unique in the world. And the winners of the Tolosa Cup will have the chance to go there…
