Soccer Tournaments in Croatia

Soccer Tournaments in Croatia became a big deal when the country became the first to emerge from the break up of Yugoslavia as a true European soccer power.

The Croatians' surprise third-place finish in the 1998 World Cup served notice to the soccer world that, even with a population of less than 5 million, they can still produce world class players.

Notable clubs include Dinamo Zargreb, and Hajduk Split, but most of the top players are exported to the big clubs of western Europe as soon as they start to show promise. Davor Suker is, of course, the most famous of those exports, but other notable Croatian soccer players include Dado Prc, and Mario Stanic.

Croatian Beach Soccer Player Known for their extraordinary technical skill (the Yugoslavs used to be known as "the Brazilians of Europe"), Croatian teams are capable of possessing the ball extremely well and running opponents ragged with exceptional dribbling and passing ability.

As a tourist destination, Croatia is becoming increasingly popular, mostly because, compared to its overall size, it has a very long coastline along the Adriatic Sea. Ten million tourists visit the country in a typical year, more than twice the number of people who actually live there.

Popular destinations include the fortified city of Dubrovnik, the major cities of Zagreb and Split, and the Roman towns of Porec and Pula.

Here, then, is our list of soccer tournaments in Croatia.
