History

2018 will be the 32nd edition of the Arnhem Bridge Cup. The tournament is mainly Anglo – Dutch, although teams have participated from Germany and Czech Republic.

Location

Arnhem is situated in the province of Gelderland, close to the German border and around 5 hours from the channel port of Calais. The city is famous for it’s ‘Bridge Too Far’ and it’s role in ‘Operation Market Garden’ during WW2 when the British Airborne Division parachuted into Arnhem and held the bridge for several days against overwhelming odds. There are several monuments to the battle around the area including the museum at the British HQ at nearby Oosterbeek.

It’s also possible to visit the Gelredome, home of Vitesse Arnhem, a state of the art stadium with retractable roof and removable pitch.

Arnhem has excellent shopping shopping facilities and very lively nightlife.

Social Programme

The emphasis of the weekend is very much on friendship and fun. The hub of the tournament is the clubhouse which remains open into the evenings with music every night. A highlight of the tournament is the Saturday evening BBQ, payable locally if required.

In Our Opinion

The Arnhem Bridge Cup is played in a leafy setting in the north of the city, just 3 miles from the famous Bridge Too Far. 48 teams competed in 2017, places are limited so early bookings are essential.
