Welcome to the Penang Cup 2020
Organised by Maxim Events, the company behind the AirAsia KL Junior League, the KL Cup, the KL Invitational Cup and the Ipoh Cup, the Penang Cup is a youth football tournament aimed at teams and academies from Penang, Malaysia and across Southeast Asia.
Taking place in Pulau Penang from 26–29 July 2020, the tournament promises a brand new 4-day format that allows travelling teams to enjoy the best sites, attractions (and food!) the island has to offer while giving local sides the chance to play against overseas competition in the school holidays.
Matches will follow age-appropriate formats for Under 8, Under 10, Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 age groups, with all teams progressing to knockout stages in either Playoff A or Playoff B. U8 and U10 age groups will play 7-a-side, U12 will play 9-a-side and U14, U16 and U18 teams will play 11-a-side.
The 2020 tournament will be the second running of the Penang Cup. The inaugural edition attracted 92 teams from across Malaysia on 26 & 27 October 2019.
