For it’s now 4th edition there will be playing FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, … With these top teams competing against one another, the KDB Cup will have the best talent in Europe coming to Ghent, Belgium.
Roc Nation Sports launched in 2013, with the goal of supporting athletes in all elements of their career. In a similar vein, KDB Cup makes it possible for young athletes to focus on their tasks on the pitch, while building a supportive atmosphere off it. KDB Cup aims to prepare these young athletes in the most professional sportive way when they compete with other young top athletes.
