The jubilee year anno 2014 is now over and it is with a big smile we say thank you to you all. It was a cool start of the tournament when the World Cup in Brazil handed over to the World Youth Cup in Sweden in the arrival day of the teams to Gothenburg and Gothia Cup.

All the joy, splendor of color and emotion that arises when so many nationalities gather in one place is something unique. The pride to play for one’s club, one’s country and to share this with other teams. We hope you have found new friends, got to know yourself and your teammates a little better and had a really great time.

In 40 years we have together made the Gothia Cup into an international event and we look forward to building and developing the tournament together for many more successful years.

The Gothia Cup organization wishes you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

In 2014, the Gothia Cup started an elite class of 17-year-old girls – Gothia Cup Tipselit Trophy. An elite class aimed to Swedish and foreign elite clubs. The very first tournament was a  success with a great setting. The final between French PSG Paris and Spanish San Gabriel was played in front of nearly 4500 spectators at SKF Arena in Heden.

The goal is to continue to develop a world-class tournament, where eight of the country’s best 17-year-olds are invited along with the top teams from the rest of Europe and the world.

For 2015 we take the tournament further. Gothia Cup and Swedish Elitfotboll Dam (EFD)*  initiates a new and exciting collaboration.

– Girls and women’s football is a key part of the future and where we should be part of it. To get the EDF on this journey feels very good, says Carina Olofsson, project manager at the Gothia Cup.

The partnership with the Gothia Cup also strengthens the EFD’s visions and goals.

– We want to continue to support the Swedish talent on the women’s side and make visible the next generation of elite players, says Linda Wijkström, General Secretary at EDF.

EDF and the Gothia Cup are thinking long term with this new joined project. One goal is to build a gathering place and platform for girl’s football from all over the planet.

– Gothia Cup shows that they want to lift the girls further. Here is where some of the country’s best 17-year-olds get the chance to play against international teams and this is a very good school, says Linda Wijkström.

For an automatic invitation for the Swedish teams applies the following:

Swedish Champions – Damallsvenskan
The runner-up Damallsvenskan
The winner and runner-up in Elitettan
Finalist of the U19 series
Third place in the U19 series
1 Wild Card
– The Tournament’s Wildcard goes to a team that shows that the club is investing in its youth, says Victoria Sandell Svensson, Sports Director of EDF.

The 2015 Gothia Cup Tipselit Trophy will be played in Gothenburg July 13 to 18. The tournament is a collaboration between the Gothia Cup and Women Elite Football and state-owned gaming company Svenska Spel.

*Elitefotboll Dam (EFD) is a Swedish organisation that focus on the development of Elite Players.
