Gothia Cup 2021 cancelled

Due to the pandemic, there will be no Gothia Cup 2021. The governmental restrictions and the Swedish Public Health Agency’s prognosis have forced the Gothia Cup board to take the decision to cancel the tournament, a second consecutive year.

 

Gothia Cup 2021 was supposed to be held 18–24 of July and the interest to participate has been large, considering the conditions in the world with the ongoing pandemic. Gothia Cup has spent the last year to plan for different scenarios, depending on how the situation in Sweden and other parts of the world would turn out to be in the summer of 2021.

 

Now, in the end of April, the numbers of infected by Covid-19 are still high and even though the vaccination programs are rolling out in many countries, the situation is still too severe for us to be able to organise the world’s largest youth football tournament.

 

“It’s a tough decision to make but our participants’ and our officials’ health and safety are always our top priority and therefore we need to take our responsibility when the situation in the society requires it. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the patience and the understanding we have been shown in an extraordinary situation. Take care of yourselves and each other, because it is together that we will get through this. We miss you all and can’t wait until we meet again”, says Dennis Andersson, General Secretary.
