The GESS Volkswagen Cup, a local youth soccer tournament, is making its return after a three-year hiatus


The GESS Volkswagen Cup, a local youth soccer tournament hosted by the German European School Singapore (GESS) in partnership with Volkswagen, is making its return after a three year hiatus. The latest edition, the 16th in total, will be held from 11 to 12 March 2023, and will see 400 players aged eight to 16 years old taking part, representing over 30 teams from eight schools.

The last edition of the GESS Volkswagen Cup was held in 2019, and saw over 560 international and local school players, aged seven to 19 years old, from over 60 guest teams, taking part.

The 2023 GESS Volkswagen Cup will take place from 9:00am to 2:00pm on 11 March and 9:00am to 4:30pm on 12 March at the GESS campus (2 Dairy Farm Lane, Singapore 677621), and the tournament is open for public viewing, although parking spaces are limited and is available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Visitors can also get to test drive Volkswagen models like the Golf hatchback

Aside from the football action, visitors can also look forward to football clinics, freestyle football performances and the chance to test-drive Volkswagen’s award-winning range on site at the Volkswagen booth, including models like the T-Cross compact SUV, Golf hatchback, Tiguan SUV, Arteon liftback and Touareg flagship SUV.

Spectators can tag @volkswagensg and #WeDriveFootball on Instagram and TikTok when posting content from the tournament over the two days. The three most creative content entries stand to each win a Playmobil Volkswagen Beetle Playset, and winners will be notified through Volkswagen Singapore’s Instagram or TikTok pages.
