The European Controllers Cup is a football tournament which is held every year, organized by and for Air Traffic Controllers throughout Europe. The tournament has been in existence, in one form or another, since the end of the 1960s.
Each year, Air Traffic Controllers from a different Air Traffic Control unit all over Europe take the responsibility to organize the football competition.
The community has grown to 55 teams, from all over Europe alongside a team from New York. The tournament is usually held with 40 teams, with about 1000 participants every year.
