Whitsun football tournament co-incides with the Hessentag

The football club SC-Eintracht 1957 e.V. holds an international tournament in Oberursel at Whitsun every year, in which young football groups from throughout Germany and beyond take part.

This weekend the event is being held for the 44th time, and happens to co-incide with the Hessentag taking place in the town.

But apart from some concerns about the road closures in Oberstedten on Monday, the players should not have too many problems getting to the ground as it is outside of the zones where the roads have been closed for the week.

Today saw the classes E, F and G play, with class D starting tomorrow with the match 1. FC Köln versus Eintracht Frankfurt.  The classes are sorted by age, and the players this weekend are between 5 and 14 years of age.

There are almost 600 children taking part in the tournament and guests are welcome.  Entry is free, and even the teams do not have to pay a fee to take part, making it accessible to as many people and players as possible.

The final is set to take place on Monday at 4.10pm.
