21st Open football tournament MEDULIN 2022.



We would like to invite you to participate with your teams at the 21st Open football tournament Medulin 2022..

In cooperation with "GAT" travel agency, Zagreb Football Association (ZNS) is organizing the traditional youth football tournament for boys and girls for the 21st time. This tournament was organized for the first time in year 2000 when only 480 participants participated in the tournament. In the following year the number rose to 780 participants and in year 2006 there were already 1.200 participants. From year to year the number of participants increased, when in year 2010 it went up to 101 teams with a total of 2.131 participants.

The tournament has expanded not only in Croatia, but also abroad. With the participation of several foreign clubs (Italy, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Sweden, Austria ...) the tournament got an international character.


The 20th anniversary tournament of the Zagreb Football Association was attended by 125 teams with 2.120 participants.

To increase the quality of football tournament, we are currently negotiating the possibility of participation of well-known football clubs from Italy (AC Milan), Germany (FC Bayern), Great Britain (Southampton FC), Portugal (S.L. Benfica), Austria (SK Sturm Graz, FC Admira Wacker Mödling, Wolfsberger AC), Slovenia (NK Maribor, NK Krško), Serbia (FK Vojvodina, FK Crvena Zvezda), Switzerland (FC Lugano), Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland and even Australia and United States of America.

Of course, we expect the usual participation of the Croatian clubs that participate in the tournament every year with a very large number of teams. The clubs GNK Dinamo, NK Lokomotiva, HNK Rijeka, HNK Gorica, NK Rudeš and NK Istra 1961 already confirmed their participation for next year.

These statistics are the proof that the tournament organized by ZNS experts has become one of the most interesting tournaments in Croatia, thanks to the quality of the accommodation and the sports content.

Insurance : the package price does not include any travel insurance. In order to help protect you, your traveling party, and your trip investment, we recommend that you add travel protection to your reservation. The cost of the protection plan varies with the cost of your vacation, please contact us for your pricing quote. We suggest that the policy should include, but not be limited to, the following cover : the cost of termination of the contract by the traveller and  the cost of assistance, including repatriation, in the event of accident, illness or death. By signing the tour Contract, with these Terms and Conditions as its integral part, it is understood that additional insurances stated in the previous paragraph have been offered and recommended to customers. In case that the customer requests the stated insurances, they can be contracted directly with an insurer or through GAT, whereby GAT acts only as a mediator. We recommend that you study the insurance terms carefully before the purchasing.


General Visa Requirements for Croatia : even prior to EU entry, foreign visitors did not normally require visas to enter Croatia. Citizens of the EU countries did not (and do not) need visas to visit Croatia. Visitors can visit Croatia for up to 90 days in any 180 day period. For other countries, please check the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs‘ website for visa requirements for Croatia. If you do need a visa, please contact the Croatian Embassy in your country for more information.Despite being part of the EU, Croatia IS NOT part of the Schengen Zone. The country officially applied to join on 1st July 2015, but it is still not yet part of the Zone. Citizens of EU countries may enter Croatia using their national identity cards (if these exist) instead of a passport. Otherwise, passports are required to enter Croatia.


Healthcare in Croatia : the health service in Croatia is of a good standard. As the country is part of the EU, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is now valid in Croatia. If you’re the citizen of an EU country and are travelling to Croatia, we would highly recommend that you obtain an EHIC (it is free, after all!). Each country's health system is different and might not include all the things you would expect to get free of charge from the NHS. This means you may have to make a patient contribution to the cost of your care. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will allow you to access public healthcare provided in Croatia at a reduced cost, or sometimes for free. You may be asked to present your passport or other travel documents as proof of identity. Please, check with your home healthcare provider for their information for Croatia. Whether you’re an EU resident (with an EHIC) or not, we would definitely advise all travellers to obtain travel insurance when travelling abroad.


Persons with reduced mobility : travel is not suitable for people with reduced mobility
