Ove Helgesen Trophy was established in 2016. The tournament aims to gather a field of the strongest Norwegian teams mixed with strong Scandinavian and European teams. Already in its first year the tournament was a great success, attracting a strong field of a total of 18 teams and displaying some terrific matches in the U14 and U13 age groups for boys.
Malaga CF beat Fulham FC to win the U14 final, while FC Midtjylland overcame Tottenham Hotspur to win the U13 final.
Here’s a short video from the 2016 tournament:
In 2017 the tournament will also include an U15 age group, and hopefully, also an U14 age group for girls, reaching a total of 40-50 teams overall.
The tournament is named as an honorary memory of the late club legend, Ove Helgesen.
