2014 Latin Cup

The Latin Cup is an international roller hockey tournament contested by the youth (under-23) national teams of four Latin European countries: France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

Created in 1956, the tournament was held every year and hosted alternately in one of these countries. The first editions were played by senior players. Between 1964 and 1986, the competition did not take place. In 1987, it was restored, but opened only to young players (under-23). In 2001, the Spanish national team could not attend the Latin Cup and was replaced by Germany.[1]

The current champions are Portugal, who won a record 13th title at the 2014 edition held on home soil, in Viana do Castelo. It was the first Portuguese win in the competition since 2008.
