"For our teams, it was an exceptional experience to participate in this tournament with top-level teams and undisputable outstanding organization. The way you and your 400 volunteers were interacting with our delegation was something unforgettable for a small period of time ".
Roman Veriaskiny & Sergey Morozov from FC Zenit Academy
" I am particularly admired for the kindness and helpfulness of the 395 employees. Drongen is the solar village of Flanders. One walks the legs from under the body to the players and staff for the sake of being. And all that with a smile. It is therefore an honor to be part of this sporting event as a club that does not know its equal ".

"It was a great weekend, selfies with Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne, an autographed shirt from Pep and signed Kevin's book and shirt. What else does a man want? We'll be back next year!"
" Great to see these future stars play! There was a lot of young talent between them! "
" Kids had a great day! And as a cherry on the cake a picture with Kevin De Bruyne ... "
