The first Swedish team to register for the 2015 Gothia Cup was Särö IK from Gothenburg.

Here you can read their own words on their participation and expectations.

Särö IK might not sound like much, and the club house may not look so much to the world, but appearances are deceptive. Under the name Särö IK hides a seething activity that employs a variety of players, coaches and interested parents. We are proud of our club and that we are over 1000 members, of which over 500 are between the ages of 7-15 years.

We, the B11 is a fairly small squad of 16 guys who love football. Several of the guys have older siblings who played the Gothia Cup and experienced it as a both fun and exciting week so when we get the chance for the first time we just had to wait for the registration to open and registered as soon as it was possible.

Our goal is to qualify for the A finals and when we get there, we will try to make life difficult for the larger more well known clubs. We have everything to gain.

What we look forward to most is to meet teams from other countries and see how we stand up against them.

Now we have all the motivation that makes winter training really fun and we are really looking forward for the Gothia Cup week next summer.

Watch out … Here we come in Särö IK B11 ……!

Turf City FC from Singapore were the first team to sign up for the 2015 tournament. The Club is the first professional academy in Singapore and has a self-training model that was developed by the club’s head coach Luka Lalic.

Singapore is a multicultural country and the team from Turf City FC really represents that. Players have origins from all over the world and come from among others Australia, Denmark, England, Israel and the United States. – Even though we are a multicultural team, we are a like a well-knit family and teammates are all very close friends, says Luka Lalic.

-The Gothia Cup is well recognized throughout the world as the premier international youth football tournament so we have been familiar with it for some time however several other youth academies from Singapore have attended Gothia in recent years, bringing it front of mind. This will be Turf City’s first appearance and we can’t wait to show what we can do!

The club has participated in several other international tournaments in Asia, but it will be the first time traveling to Europe. They expect a whole new experience when the tournament is much bigger than anything they previously participated on. As they are from Singapore they see themselves as new-comers and hope to surprise and go far in the tournament.

– We are most looking forward to playing against top caliber teams from Europe and around the world. We also think the Opening Ceremony sounds amazing and can’t wait to experience the overall atmosphere- concludes Luka.

Gothia Cup welcomes Turf City from Singapore  to the Gothia Cup 2015!
