JC European Reino Football Tournament

Reino football is a hobby which was created in the crazy country of Finland. The game is played with those slippers your grandparents wear when going for a morning tea in the garden and with a plastic football that children usually start their games in early age. The game is played in a bit smaller field than normal junior football field and special rules apply: This is not a contact sport so no physical contact allowed in the game. If you misplace your slippers during the game you need to go and pick it up before you can continue playing. We recommend to have a piece of wool socks with you to play with, why? You will notice during the game why. Pictures from the World Championship tournament and the rules of the game can be found on: Come and support your country colors in the JC European Football Tournament and participate to Reino Football games on a while.
