2018 Toulon Tournament

The Toulon Tournament (officially the Festival International "Espoirs" - Tournoi Maurice Revello) is a football tournament which traditionally features invited national teams composed of under-21 players. Although the first tournament in 1967 featured club teams, it has been limited to national teams since 1974.[1] The tournament is held around the Region-du-Var, with the final being held in Toulon itself.

History

Toulon Tournament is not run under the supervision of FIFA or an individual national association. Therefore, it is deemed as the most prestigious of all friendly tournaments involving U-21 teams, and considered an unofficial world championship before FIFA introduced the official World Youth Cup in 1977.[1]

The Toulon Tournament plays with two 40-minute halves.[citation needed]
