Donation will help Gothia Cup to develop GSOT

Gothia Special Olympics Trophy (GSOT) was started in 2011 by the former Swedish national team star Kim Källström and the category has become an established favorite during the Gothia Cup week in Gothenburg.

Now Gothia Cup has been granted a donation of 250 000 SEK from Stadium Foundation. The money is earmarked for the development of GSOT.

Stadium Foundation is a foundation whose goal is to promote an active and healthy life for as many people as possible, both nationally and globally. The entire contribution that the Gothia Cup receives from the Stadium Foundation is earmarked for Gothia Special Olympics Trophy, where the Gothia Cup offers young people with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to participate in the tournament. The category is a platform for cohesion and cultural exchange between young people from different backgrounds and conditions. The grant is used to further develop the category and to increase understanding of young people with intellectual disabilities in society through targeted PR efforts.
– Thanks to this donation from Stadium Foundation, we're expanding our work to get more girls' teams to participate while increasing knowledge about young people with intellectual disabilities. Giving more people the opportunity to participate and creating a better experience for everyone is something we are really passionate about, says Niclas Freiholtz, tournament director at Gothia Cup.

Patrizia Nilsson from Stadium Foundation is pleased that the donation contributes to the development of Gothia Special Olympics Trophy.
– Stadium Foundation wants to enable more people to live an active life. The donation to Gothia Special Olympics Trophy will be used to continue developing the class, attract more girls' teams and increase understanding of young people with intellectual disabilities in society, says Patrizia Nilsson.
