1. FC Union Berlin's Stadion An der Alten Försterei will host the first-ever edition of the GGC Youngster Cup — an international youth tournament featuring the likes of Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
Union's U17 team will test themselves against some of the best in Europe this summer when the competition starts on August 8. PSV Eindhoven, Brondby and Valencia will make up the international representatives for this summer's premiere. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt will arrive in Köpenick. There is also the opportunity for the Berlin derby against Hertha, if both teams progress.
The group stages of the GG8 Youngster Cup will take place on Saturday August 7 from 11am. The first day of matches will take place at the Werner-Seelenbinder Stadion of Lückenwalde. The following day's action, including the final and third-placed match, will be held at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei. All games will last for 40 minutes.
