The Carter Cup Tournament has now been running for 44 years with only one cancellation in 2014 due to operational commitments.

The 7-aside format introduced in recent years is popular and produces exhilarating, fast-paced, competitive matches that are great for the players and spectators alike. With the standard and enthusiasm for on-island football so high, we are expecting an excellent turn out for this year's competition.

The Carter Cup is now the showcase football event that heralds the start of the new Cyprus Services’ Football Season. Each year this event raises money for many good charitable causes we are looking forward to another successful tournament.

New Format for 2015

2015 sees a change to the format of the event. In the past the tournament took place on a single day, usually the first Saturday in September. That restricted the number of teams that could participate and the number and length of matches. This year it still concludes on the Saturday alongside the Akrotiri Family Fun Day (5th September) with the children's tournament but the preliminary qualification rounds and finals for the adults tournament will be held during the week before starting on Monday 31st August.

We will be updating our website with full details of the tournament itinerary and match schedule in time for this year's event.
