The second edition of Gothia Cup China took place in August, with great success. The tournament had a 50% increase rate in participating teams.
Gothia Cup China took place August 13-19. Our sister tournament in the east has grown since the launch last year, especially when comparing the increase of teams that went from 220 to 320 participating teams.
“The organizer used the knowledge from last year to arrange this year’s tournament in a positive way. Gothia Cup China gives us the possibility to reach a new market, currently unaware of the original Gothia Cup in Gothenburg”, said General Secretary Dennis Andersson after his visit to Shenyang during the tournament.
Gothia Cup China has a solid foundation of native teams but had an impressive count of 150 teams from other Asian countries this year. In total, 32 teams were represented.
“To be able to create a globally competitive tournament in such short time is impressive. The fact that Gothia Cup China has become another international meeting place for the world’s youth means a lot since that is the foundation of Gothia Cup”, Dennis Andersson said.
