Gothia The Youth World Cup

Gothia The Youth World Cup

European Tours

NCF Elite player’s compete in the largest and most exciting youth tournament on the planet. The Gothia Youth World Cup is held in July and hosted in the beautiful city of Gothenborg in Sweden. The tournament welcomes more than 1500 teams from across 75 nations from Europe and across all continents. This truly is a Youth World Cup.

The Gothia Cup boasts an incredible opening ceremony! A 90 minute show, jam-packed with live music, dance performances, fireworks and a presentation for all participating nations. Held in a the 50,000 seater Ullevi Stadium. When we said “World Cup Experience, we were not joking!

U15s Captain Romario said ‘We have grown so close as a group and that was proved by our performances in Sweden at the Gothia Youth World Cup. I would like to thank all my team for their efforts. We will all remember this experience for a very long time’.

NCF Elites travel to Gothia for one reason and that is football. However, there is enough time for the players, coaches and parents travelling, to have some bonding time. And Gothia has plenty of entertainment to do to keep all travelling parties stimulated once the football finishes. The players will enjoy the fabulous Heden Centre, and this provides a football paradise for any young player. The centre includes, 6 fully artificial football pitches and numerous other football attractions.  For Adults, there are plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs for you to enjoy

The player’s will compete at the highest level in youth football. An environment full of scouts from teams all over Europe and beyond, searching for that next special talent.

What does Gothia provide to our JW’s NCF Elites Players? Learning is the most important process in life and our players will leave Sweden with lifelong memories and friendships, as well as an even better understanding of why teamwork, responsibility, equal opportunity and having fun across borders are important.


I had a really enjoyable night at Jack Wilshere’s NCF Elites at their Enfield Centre last Friday. The coaching sessions were really well organised and professionally run.
