Great Yarmouth Football Tournament
The Great Yarmouth Cup is yours to be won!
For over 20 years we’ve been heading to the eastern Norfolk coast to host a weekend of footballing family fun, and your team could be a part of it all in 2022? Lynn Grove High School and Hemsby Football Club are the settings for The Great Yarmouth Football Tournament, and the first class facilities at both locations make this a top destination for some competitive matches throughout the weekend.
2023 DATES COMING SOON!

This tournament runs over a long weekend in early May, and with over 80 teams taking part open to both boys and girls teams, you’ll play up to 9 football matches across Saturday and Sunday. Lynn Grove High School boasts 12 football pitches and 4G Astroturf, as well as top notch on-site catering to refuel throughout the day. Due to the popularity of this event, we are also using Hemsby Football Club in 2022, which has a further 10 football pitches as well as the all-important on-site catering and changing facilities.
