Football, Göteborg: 13 reviews and 27 photos

  New Ullevi
by Sjalen

Göteborg has several teams in the Swedish premier league year after year. IFK Göteborg might be the most popular (and known abroad after their Champions success with England's "Svennis" in the 80s) but Örgryte (ÖIS), Frölunda, Häcken and GAIS are other teams worth noticing. You will easily find tickets to all games. For IFK, check http://www.ifkgoteborg.se/mainset.html for dates and times ("Nästa match"). IFK usually don't play in the "new" Ullevi where the World Athletics Championships were held but in Old Ullevi nearby.

Every summer there is also the now very famous Gothia Cup for children. Teams come from all over the world to battle it out on most of the city football grounds.

Directions: Tram to Central station (since most go there) and follow crowds in blue and white. Alternatively, walk across the Heden amateur football grounds in the city centre.
