Brian Horne and Stefan Schwarz are ex-professional footballers who have many years in experience in the football industry.
With an excellent knowledge of Portugal and its training facilities both Stefan and Brian realised that the opportunities for European and Scandinavian clubs to play competitive friendly games in Portugal was very limited. After identifying this gap in the market, the pair set up The Atlantic Cup which has gone on to enjoy eight very successful years. In 2018, Stefan Schwarz decided to step down as as organiser and now acts as an ambassador tor The Atlantic Cup.
With the reputation of the tournament ever-growing, and also the introduction of The Dubai International Cup, Sporting Events are delighted to announce the return of The Atlantic Cup in 2020.
