The draw for the 2019 CONIFA European Football Cup took place in Krakow today (Sunday 27th January).
Twelve teams, who represent 30 million people across Europe, will battle it out in the third CONIFA European Football Championship, which will take place in Artsakh in June.
The draw was made by Alberto Rischio, CONIFA European President; Ashot Danielyan, Minister of Science and Sport from the host nation of Artsakh; and Lucy Thomas, PR & Sponsorship Manager from tournament sponsors Sportsbet.io.
CONIFA, and hosts Artsakh, look forward to welcoming all players, coaches, and support staff from all competing football associations to the tournament – and we look forward to welcoming many fans to what will be a celebratory festival of culture and football.
As a final note, CONIFA and all CONIFA members wish to acknowledge Holocaust Memorial Day and to say that our thoughts are with victims of the Holocaust, their families, and in addition, all those affected by fascism and oppression throughout the world.
