The 2018 Surrey International Open is the first installment of International Surrey Football's (ISF) Surrey International Open. 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 planned to feature 2 non-FIFA representative teams and 2 club sides and will act as a pre-season tournament comparable to the Audi Cup and Premier League Asia Trophy.

The competition is currently scheduled to feature 4 teams.

Tournament

4 teams are expected to take part and were originally planned to include 2 representative sides, including hosts Surrey, and 2 club sides, including the venue host. The tournament will split the teams so that 1 representative team will play 1 club side in the semi-final round in order to maximise the attendance per fixture and help build the profile and interest in non-FIFA football.

Venue

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, it was considered best to limit 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 for a possible venue in the 2017 attempt, 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, the talks were productive but the costs wanted by Sutton United were deemed too much given the likely attendence was not deemed to be high to cover the expense. In the lead up to the 2018 Surrey International Open the search had to begin again.
