Gothia Cup

TV4 continues as tv partner to Gothia Cup – Gothia Puma Trophy will be broadcast

Last summer, the Ghanaian crowd favorites Right to Dream Academy and the superb American team Minnesota Thunder Academy lifted the trophies in Gothia Puma Trophy.

It is now decided that the prestigious Gothia Cup category for 17-year-olds will be broadcast live on Fotbollskanalen and TV4 Play also this year.

As you know, the Gothia Cup kicks off on July 14, the same day as the European Championship final is played in Berlin, and then it's full speed on the football pitches in and around Gothenburg during week 29. Starting on July 15, the elite category Gothia Puma Trophy will be broadcast on TV4 Play and Fotbollskanalen. A total of twelve matches will be shown.
– We reached a larger and wider audience nationally last year through the collaboration with Fotbollskanalen and TV4 Play. We ourselves broadcast over 2 000 matches from the tournament but with the help of this collaboration, we hope for the best remote experience of the tournament so far, says Anders Albertsson, event director at Gothia Cup.

Fotbollskanalen/TV4 Play will have its own studio on site at Heden during the Gothia Cup week and, just like last year, interesting guests are promised in the studio. Adam Pinthorp will be the presenter and Siavoush Fallahi the studio expert. Marcelo Fernandez also acts as an expert during Gothia Puma Trophy matches.
– It feels very fun to be part of the football party that Gothia Cup is. There is a high level in these matches and in the players who are involved. Last year, we were able to show when the current Bayern Munich player Jonah Kusi-Asare shone in the AIK jersey and it is some of the stars of the future who show themselves, says Olof Lundh, Fotbollskanalens's editor-in-chief.

Gothia Puma Trophy saw the light of day in 2009 and is a invitational tournament where first-class Swedish teams measure their strength against strong international opposition. Seven teams from Sweden and nine international teams participate in the G17 class. Twelve Swedish teams and an equal number from other parts of the world participate in the B17 class.
