The history of the Gothia Cup http://teamstaysports.com/the-history-of-the-gothia-cup/ http://teamstaysports.com/the-history-of-the-gothia-cup/#respond Sat, 24 Mar 2018 14:33:33 +0000 http://teamstaysports.com/?p=25493

When it all began, no one could have imagined what the Gothia Cup, a small youth tournament, would become.

It was 1975, and the concept of a tournament to which teams from abroad would also be invited was not only unique, it would also prove to be extremely successful. Another unique feature from the outset was that girls were involved in their own class.

The old, yellowing piece of paper still exists on which a number of young enthusiasts wrote down their visions for the new Gothia Cup. It states: ”The Gothia Cup shall be a meeting place for the young people of the world, regardless of colour, gender or religion.” This was written in 1981 and remains the guiding principle for the organisation to this day. With more than one million participants from 143 countries and with a name as the world’s biggest youth event, we can justifiably claim that we have succeeded.

The Gothia Cup – more than just football was an expression used for many years.
We aim to provide an experience for all participants. A lot of resources were used on the opening ceremony and other spectacular events. The thought was that no one would travel the world around just to play some football matches.

We’ve always been associated with words like experience, encounters and international football. Right from the outset, the Gothia Cup had a high footballing status. Winning the Gothia Cup was and remains one of the finest things you can wish for as a young footballer. Nowadays it’s an achievement simply to take part.

Being involved in children’s issues away from football and outside Sweden has always been an important element of the Gothia Cup. Our significance beyond the sideline has increased. The schools in the Congo are an example of this. Another is the initiative known as the Kim Källström Trophy, a class for young people with developmental problems. A third is the Meet the World tournament, which is run in partnership with SKF in more than 20 poorer countries. All this is included in the Gothia Cup Foundation, a cooperation between Gothia Cup and the enterprise.

6 Steps to Start your Gothia Cup Trip http://teamstaysports.com/6-steps-getting-started-gothia-cup-trip/ Wed, 20 Apr 2016 19:12:48 +0000 http://teamstaysports.com/?p=3801  

How does it start?   How does a team of teen-age American soccer players and their coaches, and some fans and parents enjoy the most amazing international experience?  How does it go from the idea of: “that would be cool……I would like to do this trip”…..to……………….we did it!  We had the idea, we organized it and it was even better than I thought it would be!?

I am the “coach’s wife” and watched this birthing process for many years.  These are the steps I see happen with every successful team trip:

#1 SHARE your dream and vision for the trip with EVERYONE on the team, not just your best friends!   Is your team excited? Do they share your excitement with your team to compete at the  Gothia Cup?

#2 CONTACT Team Stay Sports, share the details of your team, where you live and your soccer experience, what is your age group and WHY you are excited to travel internationally with your team?  We will help you by providing a suggested itinerary, an estimated price and coach to help you with the “next step”.

#3 Schedule a TEAM MEETING with players, coaches and parents.  A representative from Team Stay Sports can be present at this meeting and will be able to present specifics regarding the trip.

#4  COMMIT to this interest with a down-payment /per person to Team Stay Sports. We will help you with fund raising ideas, how to gain additional support and all things needed to make this trip HAPPEN!!

#5 Does your team need a few more “players” to fulfill the goal of a full team?  Identify other clubs and/or age-groups within your own club who might want to be part of this travel time and contact those players

#6 The team is established and you have enough players to support this trip!  Establish some fund raising goals and a schedule for payments, develop a “travel team” practice schedule and the count-down to Gothia Cup begins!planning
