Gothia The Youth World Cup

Gothia The Youth World Cup

European Tours

Travelling to compete in the largest and most exciting youth tournament on the planet. The Gothia Youth World Cup in the beautiful city of Gothenburg, Sweden. Jack Wilshere’s NCF Elites squads will travel to and from the tournament and room together, in proper world cup fashion. 3,500 teams from 78 different countries will be competing for the chance to win The Gothia Youth World Cup and be crowned champions of the youth world.

Gothia holds an opening ceremony which is second to none! A two-hour long show jam-packed with live music and dance performances, fireworks and a presentation of all participating nations in a sold out 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’.

Jack Wilshere’s NCF Elites travel to Gothia for one reason, football. However, there is more than 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 for the day finishes. The players will enjoy the fabulous Heden Centre, any young football players paradise, which includes 6 fully artificial football pitches which are installed purely for the tournament, in the middle of the city centre. For Adults, there are plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs for you to enjoy (just make sure you are on the side-line the next day, supporting with or without a hangover!).

What does Gothia give 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.
