Only two months to go: "The expectations are high"
Now there are only two months left until the football party Gothia Cup 2023 starts.
We're proud to soon be able to welcome a record number of happy players and leaders as well as referees and crew members to Gothenburg.
This year we have increased the number of football pitches, as we welcome Alingsås back into the Gothia Cup family again. Gothia Cup was played in Alingsås in both 2018 and 2019 and now it's time again. In addition, SKF Arena's capacity will be increased to 8 500 spectators, enabling us to let even more supporters watch high-class junior football from the front row at Heden.
The preparations for this year's tournament were already started when last year's edition of Gothia Cup ended last summer. The work is in full swing and it won't be long before Heden is transformed into a wonderful football paradise.
– The preparations for this year's tournament are still going according to plan. Now we are working on the last details, says Gothia Cup's Competition General Niclas Andersson Freiholtz.
The interest in the tournament is extremely high.
– As we expect a new participant record, the expectations for this year's tournament are of course high. The world is back! says Niclas Andersson Freiholtz.
We can't wait to welcome you all and create unforgettable memories together during the world's biggest youth football tournament.
