25th International Festival of Sport and Recreation

The 25th International Festival of Sport and Recreation took place in Ayia Napa between the 1st and 8th of May 2016. This is the beigest tournament to take place in Cyprus. This event has been previously organized in Turkey, however due to recent disagreements between Russian Federation and Turkey, the event organizer Ilya Shekhman of “Amateur Association FOOTBALL”, has chosen Cyprus as a new location for the tournament.

The main event of the festival is a football tournament. The tournament took place on the Aeneas fields in Ayia Napa. 22 teams took part in the tournament. The teams were split up into three divisions. No Age Restriction, Junior and Old Stars. Junior division has a minimum age requirement of 39 years, and Old Stars 48 years respectively. Majority of the footballers, that took part in this tournament, have previously played professional football, but armatures have also taken part in the games.

The guests of the festival have primarily stayed in the Callisto Holiday Village, which also acted as the main stage for the concerts, events and the football award ceremony.
