South African team, Kusasa Stars, participated in Gothia Cup in 2018 and 2019 and looked forward to fulfilling the dreams of more young people this summer, traveling to Sweden and the world’s largest meeting place for youth.
Instead, they’re now fighting the coronavirus pandemic, trying to keep the children safe in these challenging circumstances.
Due to the Coronavirus disease pandemic, there will be no Gothia Cup this summer. After consulting with the Swedish Public Health Agency and the WHO, we have come to the decision to cancel the tournament, for the first time since the beginning in 1975.
Fair play is an important part of football and our Fair Play project Celebrate the Game was created to improve the environment for everyone, both on and off the pitches. Submit your best Fair Play story and have the chance to win a nice prize.
Meet the World
Through Meet the World, SKF has sponsored over 4,000 people from all over the world, for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel to Gothenburg and compete in Gothia Cup. Ana Bral, 23, from Portugal is one of those 4,000 people who got this chance. She got it not only once, but four times.
Our volunteers, Nils and Sture, at the sports school in Congo-Brazzaville are now back home in Sweden. Before returning home, they spent a few weeks at our sister school in Kimpese, which is located on the other side of the Congo River in Congo-Kinshasa. At that school, Nils tried the dance sport nzango.
Gothia Cup wants to make an update about the current situation, because of the outbreak of the new coronavirus. This message has today been sent to all our participant teams:
Since the outbreak of a new coronavirus, Gothia Cup wants to inform our participating teams about the situation.
The registration to Gothia Cup 2020 closes in about a month and the interest in the World Youth Cup is high, with many nations breaking their participating records this summer.
For the first time ever, teams from Trinidad and Tobago, and from Myanmar will participate in Gothia Cup.
Twelve foreign teams will be invited to this year’s edition of Gothia Puma Trophy. They will compete against the same number of Swedish teams.
“It is very inspiring for us to participate”, says Robert Nordström, Academy Manager at Halmstads BK.
