More than one million players have taken part in the Gothia Cup during the years.
The following players have one thing in common; they have won the Gothia Cup as well as they took part at the World Cup 2006: Xabi Alonso (Spain), Adebayor (Togo), Andrea Pirlo (Italy), Ze Roberto (Brazil), José Montiel (Paraguay), Kim Källström (Sweden) and Teddy Lucic (Sweden).
Six countries have been represented every year: Sweden, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Finland and England.
Already at the very first year girls were welcome to take part in Gothia Cup. Unique for the time but it was a great success. After six years the tournament held five different age classes for girls.
The most popular meal at the schools is meatballs with mashed potatoes. In total around 255000 meatballs are served.
