Thank you for a magical week!

19 506 goals and a countless number of laughs sums up Gothia Cup 2018. Our organisation would like to take a moment to say thank you to all participants, volunteers and visitors who made this tournament into a memory that will last for a lifetime!

The city of Gothenburg never feels as empty as the day after Gothia Cup, when all our amazing participants has left us. But we woke up with a smile on our faces, to sum up the 44th edition of Gothia Cup as one of our best tournaments ever.

1,731 teams, from 78 countries, have played 4,424 matches and together made 19,506 goals on our 101 pitches.

The Gothia Opening Ceremony gave us a magical night at Ullevi together with 47,108 enthustiastic people in the audience. 21,641 visitors watched our finals at Gamla Ullevi.

During the week, thanks to our main partner SKF, we live streamed 1,320 matches. 1,4 million views, from 582,257 unique viewers, sum up in more than 55,000 hours of live streamed football. The most popular match on our live stream was the B17E gold medal game IFK Göteborg, Sweden vs. Right to Dream, Ghana, followed by the G15 gold medal game Hammarby IF, Sweden vs. Lerums IS, Sweden.

Thank you all, for making this into a magnificent week! We can’t wait to see you again next year!
