Gothia World Youth Cup


 

The Gothia Cup World Youth Cup

We have very limited space left now for the Gothia Cup squads in 2019 but if you are interested in attending in 2019, as we will be taking U12, U13, U14, U15 and U16 age groups please get in touch and email us for further information at info@phoenixfootballacademy.com

The 2019 Gothia Cup

Five squads will fly to the event on Sunday 14th July 2019 and spend a fantastic week in Gothenburg, Sweden.

We will stay at the superb Gothia Towers Hotel (www.gothiatowers.com) directly opposite the theme park and in a superb location for getting around the city. This is a superb hotel, with fantastic air-conditioned rooms allowing the boys excellent rest between games.

We will be flying British Airways to the event and using Executive coaches.

In 2019 we have once again improved the quality of the event for our players and this time we have hired a hotel conference room for the whole week to allow us to hold team meetings prior to and after games, to discuss performances, as well as being able to hold our physiotherapy clinics and coaches and parents discussions.

This is our sixth year in attendance at the event and we are looking forward to it more than ever.

We have excellent staff attending :-

Event Manager – Lynne looks after the whole trip for the coaches, staff, players and parents, making sure everyone receives a first class experience.  Lynne flies out on the Saturday evening to get everything ready for the teams arriving the following day.

Sports Therapists – Luke and Ash attended in 2018 and did a fantastic job.  They will hold clinics at the hotel for the players to ensure that they have every chance of keeping fit for the whole week ahead.

Head Coaches – All our Head Coaches are vastly experienced and have all the necessary qualifications for the event.  Simon will take the U12’s, attending his 15th Gothia Cup, Aaron is the Basingstoke Academy Head Coach and looks after the U13 boys, Ady is Director of Football at Phoenix and at his 15th Gothia Cup and will lead the U14’s, Jase is Director of Football at Aldershot Town FC and is the U15 Head Coach and Tommy, who works both at Phoenix and Fulham Academies is at his 5th Gothia Cup and with the U16s.

The week ends with the Phoenix Presentation night at O’Learys restaurant in the city, where 150 players, coaches and family members will be in attendance for food, music, photos and the awards.
