International Tournament

International Tournament 36

This year, G.S.V.V. The Knickerbockers proudly presents the 36th edition of the International Tournament, known as IT36! On the 5th , 6th (and 7th) of July 2024, the sports facilities of the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) will be the stage for the football event of the year. This year’s theme will be ‘Pitstop’! We would like to  invite you and your team to take part in the biggest student football tournament in Europe. Non-students are also warmly welcome! Why Groningen? While its history can be traced back to 300 BC, today Groningen is a vibrant student city with the youngest population in the Netherlands, one in four inhabitants is a student!

With over 600 participants from all over Europe, IT has evolved into THE event you don't want to miss. The combination of football, sportsmanship, and unforgettable parties with live performances and DJs make a stay in Groningen this weekend more than worthwhile. To provide you with an extra dose of enthusiasm and impressions, we have added some atmospheric images. Be sure to check out the aftermovies from the past years:  IT33  & IT34 .
