The 2017 Surrey International Open is the first installment of International Surrey Football's (ISF) Surrey International Open and is sanctioned by non-FIFA governing body ConIFA as a 2018 ConIFA World Football Cup qualification competition. The tournament will be hosted in a yet to be determined stadium around Surrey, England and will be organised by International Surrey Football.

The competition is currently scheduled to feature 6 teams.


Six teams are expected to take part and were originally planned to include 3 English county sides, including hosts Surrey, and 3 international ConIFA members, teams unavailable to participate in the 2017 ConIFA European Football Cup. However, following a discussion between the ISF President and ConIFA General Secretary it was instead proposed that the competition would host 5 ConIFA members as well as Surrey giving the competition ConIFA sanctioning and designation as a ConIFA World Football Cup Qualifying competition.


All the games are expected to be played at a single venue, ideally a ground that uses a 3G playing surface to best ensure that the pitch is most suitable to endure the playing demands. Given the high fixture demands, best limiting pitches to 3G surfaces, possible venues include Sutton United FC, Carshalton Athletic FC and Whyteleafe FC, although no venue has yet been announced. When initially contact was made National League side Sutton United FC quickly stood out as favourites having previously hinted interest at hosting the now cancelled ConIFA European Football Cup, discussions with the club progressed quickly with International Surrey Football agreeing a meeting with Sutton United FC representatives to discuss the ideas for the competition at length.

Capacity: TBC


Qualification was done by invitation from International Surrey Football, and could include FIFA, ConIFA, Island Games, County or club sides. Teams shown were invited by the ISF but their participation is not final and may be subject to change based on team availability.
