The history of the Thessaloniki Youth Cup begins in the summer of 2016 with the first discussions between Kostas Lolas and Thanasis Stylianou. Three successful events of the Vermio Soccer Festival had already passed and the idea of ​​organizing a tournament in Thessaloniki at the quality facilities of the Lolas Multiaction Center was slowly maturing. George Gkourtsas, a coach with many tournament experiences in central Europe, added to the group later. Followed many meetings, debates, discussions until we ended up in an organization with a modern football philosophy.
