The Big 33 Football Classic is an all-star American football game featuring the top high-school football players in Pennsylvania. Played since 1957, the game is often described as the "Super Bowl of High School Football." Contests currently pit players from Pennsylvania against players from Maryland, but opponents in the past have also included players from Ohio and Texas. Recent games have been held at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
This is the 16th edition of the UEFA Futsal Cup which has been dominated by Spanish teams who have won the championship seven time: Inter (three times), Barcelona (twice), Castellon (twice).

The preliminary round group winners join all but the four highest-ranked teams. They are drawn into six groups of four which, like the Preliminary round, are staged as one-venue mini-tournaments. The Main round is played in October.
