Quite a few internationally well-known teams will participate in the 61st edition of the Otten Cup tournament. Host PSV welcome, among other teams, Real Madrid, Cruzeiro from Brazil (PSV regular goalkeeper Gomes’ old club) and a team from Zambia, coached by former PSV star Kalusha.
Vitória will unfortunately not be able to defend their title this year, but two of Brazil’s top teams, Cruzeiro and Sport Club Internacional, will represent Latin America. Real Madrid will put in an appearance and PSV icon Kalusha, who spent five seasons in Eindhoven (1989-1994), will take charge of a youth team from Zambia. PSV will obviously participate in the tournament, just like the Dutch teams Feyenoord, Heerenveen and FC Twente/Heracles. The latter team recently clinched the Dutch title in their league and will undoubtedly start as one of the favourites to lift the Otten Cup at De Herdgang sports complex on Sunday afternoon.
The draw has meanwhile taken place. Cruzeiro EC are in group A, with Feyenoord, FC Twente/Heracles and Zambia, while PSV are in group B, with Real Madrid, sc Heerenveen and Sport Club Internacional. Feyenoord and Zambia kick off the tournament on Friday at 15:00 and PSV will play their first group game, against the Brazilian team Sport Club Internacional, at 19:00. The final is scheduled for Sunday 3 June.
