The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has held a civic reception for those involved with the SuperCupNI.
The annual tournament is regarded as one of the world’s most prestigious youth football competitions.
Speaking after the reception, the Mayor, Councillor Joan Baird OBE said: “The SuperCupNI is part of the sporting fabric of the Borough, and has a long association with the area. My thanks go to the organising committee and volunteers who make such a huge contribution to its success. I was delighted to welcome them to the Mayor’s Parlour to show our gratitude to those involved, as we look forward to another memorable event in 2018.”
The tournament’s opening parade attracts large numbers of spectators to Coleraine every year, while games are held in locations around the Borough.
