Date: Thurs 12th to Sun 15th May 2021
Where: Millen, Near Maastricht
Format: 11-a-side, 60 minute games with a half-time.

The Happening is a fantastic football festival for veterans teams from around the world, all competing at football and drinking beer! There are teams of all standards involved and you can play as many or as few games as you feel you can manage.
Games are 30 mins each way so 1 match each day is normally enough for most teams, as the bar tends to be a distraction for the rest of the time. The huge marquee hosts a lively after party on each night with live bands and DJ's playing to a packed tent. Get in touch to find out more.
More information about Millen and the surrounding area
Millen is conveniently located on the Dutch/Belgian border close to the medieval city of Maastricht (14km) and Tongeren (7km). Maastricht is full of historic buildings, impressive squares, hidden districts, museums, designer shops and everything you would expect from a beautiful vibrant city. The small size of the city allows you to take it all in on foot or if you want to act like a local, 'on a bike' which can be hired locally.
Tongeren is a walled town which was once an important trading hub for The Romans until 54BC. The remains of the Roman wall are still standing today despite the town being fought over in many wars since. Modern day Tongeren is much quieter being known for its antiques market and traditional pubs and cafes.
