This weekend (august 2nd, 3rd and 4th) Oslo is the proud host of Scandinavian Footvolley Tour at Voldsløkka Footvolley Park. The sport of footvolley is growing in Norway and we can welcome teams from 10 different nations.
Norway has participated in tournaments in Europe and South America for years, but this is our first attempt at an international tournament hosted in Oslo. A lot of talented teams have signed up and the quality of the tournament will be very good. We can not wait.
Here is some information about the upcoming tournament.
The tournament will be held over three days. Players are coming in to Oslo on friday august 2nd and they can check into their hotel rooms at Scandic KNA situated down town Oslo – a close walk to the most popular areas.
We try our best to pick up players at the airport. If you want to use this service you have to give us a heads up on when you are arriving at the airport (and which airport you are arriving at).

At 20:00 there will be a reception at the hotel (or at the courts) with information, group drawings and food.
The tournament kicks off at 10:00 at the courts (Voldsløkka). Please check the schedule to see if you play one of the first games. We are using 4 courts, so there will not be to much waiting for any teams.
Group play is between 10:00 to 14:00. After that we serve lunch. Lunch is out between 13:00 and 15:00. The tournament continues with quarter finals between 15:00 and lasts to around 17:00.
After all this hard work there will be a banquet at one of Oslos hottest clubs, Lawo Terrasse (see video), starting at 21:00. Food, drinks and party the rest of the night. And of course free entrance.
Based on the results the day before we start the semi finals at 10:00 and follow up with the finals. We believe we are finished before 14:00.
The tournament takes place in the middle of the city at a place called «Voldsløkka«. Here we have 8 brand new courts with top quality. At the tournament we can use 4 courts on saturday and 2 courts on sunday. Here you can read more about the area (change language at the bottom). The courts have been put up by Oslo Sandvolleyballklubb (OSVB), an organization we cooperate with.
