For teams purchasing the IberCup Accommodation Package
Traveling via train is the easiest way to get around the Cascais Coast. Most of the football complexes have a nearby train station and all the participants can use the IberCard to travel between the accommodations and these facilities.
The train line crosses the Cascais Coast and offers a secure and pleasant trip with the Atlantic ocean as scenery, and operate every 15 minutes. Other football complexes have conection via public bus and the tram system.
The IberCard gives you free access to the public transport system.
All the participating teams need to make sure if their accommodation option has free access to public transportation. The IberCard is included in the accommodation package for all participants. This gives free access to the public train transportation between Cascais and Lisbon.
Other public transport systems such as Buscas and Scotturb, make the connections between train stations and football complexes. For Buscas and Scotturb all the participants must use the green card "Viva Viagem".
The Ibercard will not give you access to both of these options. In 90% of the accommodation options, teams can use the public transportation network to go to the matches.
All the participating teams may alternatively request the shuttle bus service throughout the entire week of the tournament. Shuttle Bus from accommodation to the football fields is not included in the basic package of participation.
The shuttle bus system only works as a transfer for the matches, not for leisure or to take the teams to the beach. For these services (Leisure and Beach) you must contract other transportation services.
Not all accommodations have the shuttle service. Please confirm with IberCup if your accommodation can have this service.
Lisbon International Airport
Transfers from the airport to the accommodation, is not included in the accommodation package. You can book the airport transfers through the organization. Just one service per team.
The teams who travel to Lisbon should inform IberCup about the flight schedule no later than 45 days before the tournament starts. If you inform us after this date the tournament will not ensure this service. The airport transfer is exclusively for teams who choose this service, not for accompanying people that don't book their accommodation through IberCup.
