We kindly invite you at the 11th Coca Cola international Youth X-Mas Tournament, the highest ranked youth basketball tournament in Western Europe. This year again, we will gather some of the best international youth teams, for a top level competition, and we grant quality both on and around the courts. In our short history, we hosted teams from 25 different countries, including the United States and Canada. It’s simple: Teams always enjoy coming back to Kortrijk !
The overall principle of the tournament remains unchanged. Thanks to the experience of the past years, and the feedback of the participants, we will try to organize a splendid edition in 2016. The main changes this year:
- All finals will be played at Lange Munte Kortrijk, our main hall.
- In Men Under 19, only the Invitational Tournament will be organized (no Open competition).
