The first edition of the Hajraa Outdoor Tournament was in 1979, and started with 80 teams to celebrate Hajraa's 20th anniversary. This first edition was organized by honorary member Ton Cramer. The second and third edition were organized by Win van der Bijl and Walter van Hulst. The three bars at the party location have been named after those three chairmen. Over the years the outdoor tournament has grown considerably, with over 500 teams of different nationalities on more than 100 fields!!
From next edition on, a part of the match fields will be named after Jo van Ham, the former vice-president of the Eindhoven University of Technology, and long-time supporter and fan of the outdoor tournament.
