Gothia Cup is nominated to the award Gyllene Hjulet

On Thursday evening the award Gyllene Hjulet is distributed and Gothia Cup, together with SKF has the chance to become one of the winners. Meet the World is nominated in two categories: “International of the year” and “Long-term of the year”. 

“The nomination is a confirmation that we are doing great things for youth football players all over the world”, says Thomas Anderson, sales manager at Gothia Cup. 

Gyllene Hjulet has been distributed since 1997 and is considered the most prestigious award in the event and sponsorship business. SKF Meet the World is based on local SKF offices who arrange pre tournaments for Gothia Cup where the winning teams win travel and participation in the world’s largest youth tournament in Gothenburg. 

SKF’s local offices have arranged 240 tournaments with around 30,000 participants since 2007. SKF CEO Alrik Danielson summarizes Meet the World: 

“The Meet the World tournaments and the partnership with Gothia Cup is one of our biggest CSR projects and something we are very proud of. The project not only gives young people the chance to meet and discover other cultures, it also strengthens the relationships between SKF employees worldwide.”

Since 2007 SKF and Gothia Cup has given 4000 Meet the World participants, from 43 nations, the opportunity to travel to Gothenburg and participate in Gothia Cup. 

“Dreams and goals are fulfilled through Meet the World. SKF’s involvement is important for the tournament – the fact that SKF, with its main partnership, also is engaged in children’s conditions beside the football and outside of Sweden’s borders has been an important part of the collaboration, says Thomas Anderson.
