    I am a Cypriot Soccer Coach in the US and traveled to Cyprus in the last two years to watch the Cyprus Cup.  I was very disappointed to see that the Cypriot National team was not included in the Cyprus Cup and wanted to see how we can get the team become part of the Cup.  I was also surprised with the luck of publicity about the Cyprus Cup in Cyprus and wanted to help make this a more popular event especially for the young women players.  This event is a great opportunity to promote the women’s soccer in Cyprus.

    I am revisiting this issue and I wanted to ask what it would take to include the Cypriot team in the cup so i can help move this forward.

    Have you attempted to contact their football association?

    I first wanted to understand the requirements from UEFA about participating to the cup so I can discuss it with the Cyprus football association.

    I’ll have to investigate further, I believe when it was first created, it was run by the English, Scottish and Netherlands FAs but I imagine this has changed now since these teams are not competing themselves. I will let you know if I find anything that may be of assistance.

    Guys .. you do realise that the Cypriot National team is of a much lower ranking and there is now the follow up tournament the Aphrodite Cup immediately after this one where they do participate against teams much closer in the rankings like MALTA , ISRAEL, LITHUANIA , ESTONIA, BAHRAIN etc ,
