Final of the Challenge Prince Rainier III
June 4, 2023
The Prince RAINIER III Challenge was created in 1975 on the personal initiative of H.S.H. Prince RAINIER III who wished to set up a soccer championship for the employees of the Principality's companies. While keeping the friendly spirit of the first editions, the stakes and the spirit of competition have progressively taken over to make this tournament more and more popular (38 teams participated this year) and therefore a high level competition. The final is traditionally organized at the Louis II Stadium in the presence of H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince.
The Final of the 45th Challenge Prince Rainier III will take place on Sunday June 4 at 6.30pm and will pit the M.I. MONACO and VINCI CONSTRUCTION MONACO teams against each other.

- MI MONACO: 1 final (victory in 2019 against FONCTION PUBLIQUE)
- VINCI CONSTRUCTION MONACO: 2 finals (victory in 2020 against DIAMOND KALIAN + defeat in 2021 against CARABINIERS DU PRINCE)
