FORMAT

The FENIX Trophy is built on a formula divided into two phases: a group stage and the Final 8. The group stage consists of two groups of 4 teams each, in which every club will face its opponents home and away, amounting to a total of 6 games. This stage will run from mid-September until mid-May, featuring one game per week (either on Wednesdays or Thursdays), to provide continuity to the competition throughout the whole period.

The FENIX Trophy Final 8 will take place on the first weekend of June and will feature the 8 clubs drawn against each other in matches based on their group table, to define the final ranking. The Final 8 phase will be held in Rimini and will include non-football related events as well.

COVERAGE

The European dimension of the event and the presence of iconic clubs forms the central narrative in terms of communication.

Every match will be broadcast via free live streaming through the competition’s YouTube channel. The games will feature double commentary, both in the home team’s and away team’s language. Staging one game per week – for a total of 24 weeks – allows the clubs’ fanbases’ interest to focus on a single game at a time.
