Lloret de mar in Spain, Albufeira in Portugal, Sunny Beach in Bulgaria. Siofok fits perfectly into this group of ´go-to´ holiday destinations. But don´t forget: the real reason you´re coming is for the international grass-pitch competition. The Balaton Trófea takes places on the shores of the Balaton lake, in and around the modern Révész Géza utcai stadium - home to professional football club, BFC Siófok. The organiser, the city and the Hungarian football association (MLSZ) are anticipating participants from at least 10 different countries in 2018, even though it´s only the first year of the competition. Not surprising for a tournament in the lively city of Siofok.
At least 6 competitions over 4 days: you´ve got to work hard to win the Balaton Trófea. But if you´re only here once, it´s good to know that there´s plenty to do in Siofok itself and at the nearby sandy beaches. The city has more than its fair share of entertainment options for both young and old: swimming, surfing, outdoor cafes, pretty shopping streets and, if you like to party, clubs and discos.
