Interview with Peter Králik, president of the Slovak minifootball association

Can you tell us why you are organizing this event in 2023?

The Slovak Small Football Association has been organizing international events since 2010, but mostly for the main categories – men or U23. In 2023, we decided to expand by organizing an international event for our youngest categories and inviting teams from three continents. This is a natural outcome of our activity, as we have been organizing competitions for our youngest categories in Slovakia since 2016.

Which teams will participate in the event?

Teams from the USA and India have already confirmed their participation. We are currently working on securing teams from Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, and England.

How does the SSFA work with youth?

The Slovak Small Football Association has organized competitions for U8, U10, U12, and U15 categories in 16 Slovak cities, with over 90 teams. The best teams regularly compete at the Slovak Championships. In addition, we also work with the U18 category in the Bratislava and Banská Bystrica regions, with over 70 teams.

Who will represent the Slovak teams?

The winners of the Slovak Championships in the U13 and U15 categories will participate. In the women’s category, the winner of the women’s super league will participate.
