Rethymno was also selected to host the 2019 Socca World Cup between the dates 12th to 20th October 2019.

The Socca stadium will be built on the main seafront, directly on the beach and overlooking the ocean in what promises to be the most picturesque setting there has ever been for a sporting event. 

32 countries will be battling it out for a week to try and wrestle the crown from Germany, and the standard is sure to be even higher than in 2018.

With a larger stadium, bigger crowds, more teams, and an altogether more supreme experience, Rethymno 2019 promises to surpass every expectation and become the new benchmark for any small-sided football tournament anywhere in the world!
