The inspiration for the tournament came from the successful Croatian-North American Soccer Tournament founded in 1964. Six soccer clubs participated at Melbourne Croatia’s ground Montgomery Park in Essendon in the first tournament 43 years ago, growing to two men’s divisions, a women’s division, and a masters division.

Some action from the weekend…
