It’s a cultural delight…

With the CONIFA European Football Cup just a few hours away, excitement is rising ahead of our latest tournament, as eight teams travel to Artsakh to stake their claim for the silverware.

Alongside the competitive action on the pitch, supporters making the trip to Artsakh will also get the chance to sample the rich culture and history on offer from our hosts.

The opening ceremony takes place at 8pm local time on June 1st, bringing together music and dance from across the region at the Stepanakert Stadium, including Sirusho, Armenia’s 2008 Eurovision entrant, The Gipsy Gitanes Band and successful pianist Anahit Arushanyan.

After that opening ceremony, there will be up to four games a day at the CONIFA European Football Cup, meaning a plethora of action to keep the ardent football fan entertained.

But there will also be the chance to consume the culture of Artsakh, not least on the tournament rest days on the 5th and 7th of June.

For a full itinerary of the cultural events on offer in Artsakh during the tournament, see here!
