Gothia Cup

Gothia Cup Logo

If you want to get a sense of just how big a deal the Gothia Cup is, take a look at this Promotional Video from a few years ago. It really does give a sense of the sheer scale of what is one of the largest international youth soccer tournaments events in the world.

The event is hosted by the professional club BK Hacken, which plays in the second division of the Swedish soccer league, with support from the city of Gothenburg, and attracts 1,500 teams from 70 nations.

Some of the other statistics are just staggering: 91 fields, 295,000 spectators (including 52,000 and 28,000 at the opening ceremonies and finals, respectively), over 4,300 games, and 33,000 participants (average age 15.5).

It all adds up to a once-in-a-lifetime event that players, coaches and parents will never forget.
