U19 –> U18
U19 –> U18

In more and more countries, the league for U19 teams has been stopped and replaced by a U18 league. As a result, for example, the 3 Dutch teams (Vitesse, sc Heerenveen, De Graafschap), KV Mechelen and Grasshopper Club Zürich are already participating in the Karel Stegeman Toernooi with a U18 team this year. This change has also been or will be implemented in countries that are not represented at the KST 2022.
Because of these developments, from the 2023 edition (May 27, 28 and 29), the KST will no longer be a tournament for U19 but for U18 teams.
Of course, we have listened to the well-known clubs from countries where (still) a U19 competition is played. Without exception, these clubs indicate that a lowering of the age limit is no problem for them.
