SKF about the Collaboration
Love the game – share the joy
We love Gothia Cup because it lets young players from all over the world meet and learn about each other. Unfortunately a lot of kids can’t afford to come. That’s why SKF initiated the Meet the world tournaments. Meet the world is a tournament where the winning teams gets to go to Gothia Cup in Gothenburg to play in the greatest youth football tournament in the world with all expenses covered.
SKF- We make things spin
SKF is the leading global supplier of some of the most vital parts in basically anything that moves, from cars and aeroplanes to skateboards and dishwashers. If you are on a skateboard you are rolling on a little bit of SKF! The parts we make are called rolling bearings, seals, mechatronics and lubrication systems.
