Welcome to the WCC

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In 2009, in the physiotherapist’s tent at the European Controllers’ Cup (ECC) in Castellón, Spain, an idea was discussed. That idea became a vision and in 2011, after 2 years of work, the vision became reality and the first WCC Tournament was held in Las Vegas.

Every year, teams from across the world have met in exotic locations from Puerto Rico to Salvador in Brazil to compete to see who can claim the title of ‘World Champions of ATC football.’

Over the last 6 years we have had participating teams from The Netherlands, Russia, Finland, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Lithuania, Italy, Trinidad & Tobago, Ecuador, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Panama, Chile, USA, Canada, Croatia, Turkey and Hungary, as well as an international team of players from across the globe who wanted to play but were unable to form a full team.

We have a lot of interest from other teams in Europe, Africa, The Middle East and the Far East and hopefully, one day, we can get these teams playing in the WCC. Can you imagine Singapore ATC playing Mexico ATC? Anything is possible!

The raison d’être of the WCC is ‘To promote and develop, social and professional relationships between Air Traffic Controllers through football.’

The tournament is normally held at a beach resort where the emphasis is on fun and socialising after the games.

We take a day off midweek during the tournament to give everyone a rest and we usually go on a boat trip where the beer flows, the food is excellent and the singing gets louder as the day progresses!

If you are interested in attending the WCC either as a team or an individual player wishing to join Team International then do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

We look forward to welcoming you to the WCC!

Play hard, play fair, play honest!

Yours in sport
