The One City: One Goal programme comes from the unusual mix of music and football, and a spectacle of the game returns to the legendary Kantrida.

One City: One Goal combines two great traditions, two great themes of the identity of Rijeka – music and football, in order to promote young people and bring the community together in the celebration of a sports contest and a musical spectacle at the cult stadium in Kantrida.

The traditional Kvarner Riviera football tournament, which was founded in 1953, in 2020 is being held under the title The Capital of Culture Cup with teams from European Capitals of Culture in the under 19’s category. The young men’s and women’s teams join forces at the legendary Kantrida stadium, as well as at other stadiums in Rijeka and around Kvarner.

The Kvarner Riviera opens with a concert of fans’ songs by European and local clubs performed by famous Rijeka soloists, bands and choirs accompanied by a symphony orchestra.
