XXVII CAC International Junior Football Tournament | April 2007

Sponsored by Luís Figo, the Clube Atlético e Cultural from Pontinha organized the 27th edition of the Torneio Internacional de Futebol da Pontinha, which took place at the team's stadium, in Odivelas.

Much as previous editions of this event, the tournament took place during the Easter weekend, and, other than the home team, Barcelona, Benfica, Porto, Sporting, Chelsea, Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven had a chance to be a part of it.

This year's winner was Barcelona, having beaten Benfica by 1 to 0 in the final. Inter Milan beat Sporting through a penalty shoot-out, and guaranteed third place in the tournament.

The 2007 edition honored Luís Figo for his value as an athlete, and for the results obtained by his Foundation. As a way to acknowledge his work and his efforts, the Clube Atlético e Cultural da Pontinha donated 3.015€ to the LFF, which they were able to raise through several cultural activities related to the tournament, mainly a night of Fado which took place in Lisbon, at the Casa do Artista, as well as the auctioning of a sculpture piece by José Coelho, created from a football boot worn by Luís Figo.
