This year the Tournament takes place in Zakynthos and according to Ionian Islands Regional Governor Theodoros Galiatsatos, “we managed to make the event an institution, solid in time. Young people from all of our islands have come together, every year they meet, compete together and realize just how beautiful the “competition” is, but also how beautiful our islands are. It is another event, together with the Children’s Choir Festival, which we created as a regional authority for the citizens of the islands and especially the youth. We help the younger generation get to know the Ionian islands and our history, we help young people get involved in sports and ideals, we strengthen the cohesion of our islands and our common tradition. I thank the presidents and members of the Football Associations, athletes and coaches for the excellent cooperation we have had over the years. “
