Last updated: 09.12.2015 // Every summer, children from all over the world gather in Oslo for the largest children’s soccer event in the world. Registration for foreign soccer teams is now open.

The tournament brings together teams from all over the world. From the start in 1972 players, teams and referees from 126 Nations, including Australia, have participated in Norway Cup. This year Norway Cup was arranged for the 43rd time with as many as 1639 teams participating. More than 1 001 300 participants from 1972 to 2015 makes the cup makes the largest in the world.

Since 1972 Norway Cup has developed into a tournament that includes much more than just football –it has become a societal institution. Every year, Norway Cup invites between 20 and 30 teams from areas that are affected by poverty and deprivation. These teams get a free visit to Norway.

Norway Cup has a focus on Fair play in connection with the tournament, and cooperates with the Norwegian Football Association about the "Handshake for Peace" and "Fair play". Norway Cup cooperates with Save the Children, the Norwegian Red Cross, the Norwegian Church Aid, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions, and other organisations in order to bring these teams to Norway.
