"Gothia Cup" Top 5 Page for this destination Football Tip by Sjalen

Football, Göteborg: 13 reviews and 27 photos


As I mentioned in my football tip, Göteborg hosts the Gothia Cup football event every summer too when lots of children from around the world invade the city. They are accommodated in city schools and play in sports fields all over town, the best teams then battling it out in the final stages on the Heden football ground (normally used by local hobby football teams for excersising) in the city centre, on the road to New Ullevi which you can see in the distance in this picture. Children make friends for life and it is always interesting to see teams from Africa and South America meet Swedish and other "almost local" teams from around Europe. If you coach a youth team, why not enrol it :)
