The Euro Galactik Cup, which will launch in the lead up to Euro 2008 and tie in with the second season of Jetix's Galactik Football, will roll out across 17 countries from May 16th to June 30th.

The tournament will consist of nine skills-based games that have been developed by Jetix's Digital Media Group. Kids will earn points for their country by playing the online games, which will include penalty shoot outs, dribbling and goalkeeping tests.

A league table of the countries will be regularly updated and promoted online and on Jetix channels.

In addition, each country will have its own national league table and kids can win prizes and see how they rank both nationally and internationally. The top scorers from each country will also be entered into a prize draw to win the chance for their local or school football team to spend five days at the Euro Soccer Camp in Marbella.

The tournament will be at the heart of Jetix's Football Month, which will see Jetix channels across Europe running on-air competitions and football-related content, including Galactik Football.

"Football fever will be gripping kids all over Europe this summer in the build up to the European championships," said Nicole Morse, marketing director for Jetix Europe. "The Jetix Euro Galactik Cup will be a fantastic opportunity for kids to take their passion for football even further and compete online with their friends and peers across Europe to see who really is the ultimate soccer nation."
