A memory of a lifetime!

Gothia Opening Ceremony


The week is filled with encounters. Big and small. Arranged and spontaneous. The opening ceremony is the week’s major gathering. A two-hour long show with music, dancing, fireworks, a presentation of all participating nations and joy unbounded. Fellowship. 50,000 people in a packed Ullevi. Everyone’s there.
We believe that it is important to make a tournament a lifelong memory. A moment for everyone – a moment of harmony and fellowship. We want to create this very moment with the Gothia Opening Ceremony. Previous participants have compared it to an Olympic ceremony and that’s the idea. The atmosphere surrounding the opening of the Gothia Cup is electric, enough to make you shiver with excitement. It’s a memory you’ll remember and smile at for the rest of your life.
Place: Ullevi Stadium Day: Monday July 17th Time: 20:00 (gates open at 18:30)

Where we all come together!

The Show

The main number during the Gothia Opening Ceremony is to see all these countries and cultures come together. In addition to this there are nearly 500 dancers, 10 musicians and 15 solo artists accompanying this great culture mix. Together they create an amazing show. Music from all corners of the world is played when nations enter the arena and when the year’s song is played is the audience that takes care of the singing. You may also find yourself reflecting and find out that Gothia Cup is much more than just football.

The Arena

The Ullevi Stadium is Sweden’s largest arena with capacity for 46 000 sitting spectators and a couple thousand more in innerfield spaces. Gothia Cup holds and audience record of 51 210 people and is totally packed! The Ullevi Stadium is perfect for large audiences and suitable for big shows and concerts.
