Learn all about the Mina Cup 2022, participating teams, and fixtures list

Competition in football does not belong just to the top end of the first team football pyramid. Youth too grow up with their own aspiration of competing and dreams of glory.

With the vision of providing youngsters an opportunity to compete for glamorous awards, CBF Performance Education Management and under the patronage of Dubai Sports Council introduce Mina Cup in the UAE between 9 and 11 of April 2022.

The competition brings together 32 teams across four different age groups, vying to showcase their talents and battle for glory.

Goal.com takes you on a journey to learn all about Mina Cup.

What is Mina Cup?

Inspired by the success of competitions like the Northern Ireland Super Cup and the Gothia Cup in Sweden, Mina Cup was launched in the UAE, a host nation that offers a combination of Arab traditions, modern facilities and unique experiences.

The competition aims to develop young talents, promote playing in a competitive environment and provide a complete playing experience similar to what top professional footballers live week in week out.

Through Mina Cup, youngsters will get an opportunity to be exposed to the latest technologies in football analytics and gain an understanding of how best to develop as footballers.

What teams are playing in Mina Cup?

Mina Cup brings together teams across U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups including 24 UAE-based private academies that have earned the right to compete at the Mina Cup through advancing from qualifiers held in November 2021.

Joining them at the finals are some elite clubs from across the planet including England’s Wolverhampton Wanderers, Mexico’s Pumas UNAM, Austria’s SK Sturm Graz as well as international academies such as FC Barcelona Academy, Manchester City Academy and La Liga Academy HPC.

What is the Mina Cup format?

The draw for the Mina Cup held on March 29 saw teams in each age group split into two groups.

Winners of Group A will face runners-up from Group B and winners of Group B play runners-up from Group A in the semi-finals to decide the two finalists and the two sides that will battle it out for third place.

Teams that finish third and fourth in the two groups will play each other in a similar knockout format to decide places between fifth and eight, with third place in Group A facing fourth in Group B and vice versa.
