Moreland Zebras Football Club are proud host of the end of season tournament, the “Heritage Youth Cup”. The tournament name symbolizes the past history of the ever-successful ‘Coppa Italia’ tournament (Italian Cup) that saw clubs from all over Victoria compete in an end of season tournament. It is important to acknowledge the past, preserve the foundations and extend it into the future.
The Heritage Youth Cup is held at De Chene Reserve, Bell Street, Coburg Victoria. This facility has been recently redeveloped into one of the best suburban football facilities in Victoria.
This tournament caters for both male and female players from the ages of 7 to 18 years. Entry into the Heritage Youth Cup is by invitation only and will be organised by Moreland Zebras in conjunction with its major affiliates. Heritage Youth Cup is aiming to become the premier end of season tournament taking place in Melbourne.
The tournament provides the opportunity for male and female youths of all levels to participate in an end of season competition that fixtures weekend and mid-week evening games. It is the tournament committee’s aim to provide a family friendly environment and excellent facilities for the players to enjoy. It is expected that there will be great interest from many local and regional clubs looking to continue and extend their team’s development beyond the season proper.
The inaugural tournament was held at the end of the 2013 season and is expected to be bigger and better in 2014.
