Previous participants have compared it to an Olympic ceremony and that’s the idea. The atmosphere surrounding the opening ceremony is electric enough to make you shiver with excitement. It’s a memory you’ll remember and smile at for the rest of your life.
Music from all corners of the world is played when participants from all the nations enter the arena and when the year’s song is played is the audience that takes care of the singing. You may also find yourself reflecting and find out that Gothia Cup is much more than just football.
When the Gothia Opening Ceremony is held everyone is there. Over 50000 players, leaders, supporters and locals create a magical atmosphere at Ullevi Stadium. It creates a special fellowship and joy when the audience takes part of the show and when youths from all over the world are cooperating and having fun together we feel pride.
