Sam Storey and Spanish BF invite Irish clubs to Multi Nation Club Tournametn

Former Irish Olympian Sam Storey, in association with the Spanish Boxing Federation, is inviting clubs from throughout Ireland and Europe to take part in a Multi-Nation Club Tournament in Spain this September.

The tournament is being run in accordance with AIBA rules, confirmed multiple Irish champion Sam Storey, son of Irish coach Gerry Storey.

The tournament is the full package. There is one price for everything except flights which each club has to sort out themselves to arrive in Alicante on 9 September, departure is 13 September again from Alicante.

The package includes airport transfers from airport to hotel, and the same on the way home. The airport is approximately 1 hour away from the hotel.

It includes fabulous 4 star hotel accommodation in the Sierra Espuna mountain range with a full board meal plan, the price is based on two people sharing a twin room. We do have single occupancy rooms available at an additional cost.

There are courtesy shuttle buses organised to transport all fighters and officials to and from the hotel to the venue, a 10 minute journey. The cost also includes the tournament entrance fee.

Full use of my boxing gym is also included should any of the trainers/fighters need to use it during their stay. It is only 5 minutes away from the tournament venue. The teams should have little additional costs given that nearly everything is included in the package. The total cost per boxer/official is E400 which is about £285 at the current exchange rate.

On the evening of arrival there will be a meeting and every boxer/official will receive a detailed schedule of fights plus their accreditations. The draw will also be made at this meeting subject to the weigh-in the following morning. The boxers will weigh in every morning before the tournament begins.

It is a three day tournament and as such will take the following format:

Day 1 Quarter finals
Day 2 Semi finals
Day 3 Finals

The weight categories are the following:

Masculine 52/56/60/64/69/75kilos

Feminine 50/56/60kilos (there may be an extra female weight category added, the Spanish Federation is currently deciding).

Only open to boxers born 1997 and 1998 with a minimum of 5 previous fights.

We have taken over the whole hotel complex for this tournament so the boxers/officials will have plenty of time to meet with other teams over meals, on down time, in the bar, etc. There is also an open-air, Olympic pool plus sports facility nearby which we can arrange for visitors to use should they want to relax in the sun.

Storey lined out for Ireland at the 1984 Olympics in LA, but a hand injury hindered his prospects and he was beaten by Italy’s Romolo Casamonica in the light-middleweight class.
