Football Tours to Sweden
Our football tours to Sweden offer a host of amazing cultural opportunities and the chance to play in the international youth football tournament Gothia Cup.
It’s easy to get a little bit lost in the numbers when you think about the Gothia Cup. Numbers like 1700 teams, from 80 nations playing 4500 games across 110 fields. Then there’s the 2500 volunteers who help make it possible or the fact that to date, over 1 million players from 146 countries have taken part.
But the Gothia Cup, at its heart, is about more than just numbers. It’s a chance for teams from across the world to share their sporting passion, culture and explore the beautiful city of Gothenburg. The famous Opening Ceremony offers a chance for players to fully appreciate the magic of the week to come as 50,000 people pack into the Ullevi Stadium to witness the players’ entrance, dancing, music and an array of performances.
