Croatia at an International Tournament in the Emirates

The Croatian national football team will participate in the W Cup international tournament in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in March.

The Croatian Football Federation has reached an agreement for the national team’s involvement in the inaugural Winsunited Cup, scheduled to take place from March 22nd to 26th, 2024, in the Emirates.
In addition to Croatia, the W Cup will feature top African teams, Egypt and Tunisia, along with the best team from Oceania, New Zealand.

The semifinal matches are scheduled for March 22nd, followed by the losers facing off on March 25th for the third-place match. The winners of the semifinals will compete for the inaugural W Cup title on the following day. The tournament will be held every two years, with additional information on pairings, exact timings, and match locations to be announced later.

“We wanted to take advantage of the March slot for this type of tournament, featuring strong opponents in one place, which was not easy to organize. However, the Croatian national team has a great reputation, especially thanks to the results of the past five years, and we have managed to find an excellent solution that fits all parameters of what the coaching staff led by coach Dalić wanted. The opponents are fitting, and the stay in the Emirates will primarily serve to create quality ‘chemistry’ on and off the field ahead of the Euros in Germany,” stated Marijan Kustić, president of the Croatian Football Federation.
“We have been hoping for a tournament like this where we will play two good matches because all participants are quality teams. Additionally, we will have excellent training and working conditions. Our stay in the Emirates will primarily be used for team-building, as was the case in 2022 during the friendly tournament in Doha. The March slot is an ideal opportunity for us to lay good foundations and create the right atmosphere for everything that awaits us in Germany this summer,” commented coach Zlatko Dalić.
