A record year for Kim Källström Trophy
The seventh edition of Kim Källström Trophy will be a record year, with more participating nations than ever. We welcome Japan, Hong Kong and Indonesia as new nations in the tournament, which give a total of 30 teams from 16 different nations.
Kim Källström Trophy offers young people with some form of intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in Gothia Cup. The tournament is a co-operation between Gothia Cup, Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia, Special Olympics Sweden and the former Swedish national player, Kim Källström.
Ten players together with three leaders/coaches represent each team. All together we can expect around 390 participants, from 16 different nations, at Kviberg Center Fields 7A, 7B and 7C during the week.
“Kim Källström Trophy is a tournament that gives love, passion, commitment and happiness”, Tournament Secretary Patrik Falk says and adds:
“On Monday, we will play ranking games, then we continue with group stage on Tuesday and Wednesday. The playoffs start on Thursday and the gold medal games will be played at Gothia Heden Center later that day”.
