Meet The World - Gothia Cup
– an initiative from SKF

When you go to Gothia Cup, you might fulfill your dream of playing football in front of 60000 screaming fans. You will travel, meet people from all over the world and focus on your love of football for a whole week. And maybe, just maybe win everything together with your team.

As main sponsors, we at SKF want to give more young players the chance to join 35000 players and leaders for a week of football and fun. We are proud that we already have helped more than 5000 players from our 260 Meet the World pre-tournaments make the journey to Sweden and Gothia Cup.

We hope they left Gothenburg with lifelong memories and friendships. And we know we will help more meet across borders at Gothia Cup.
