Gothia Cup expands across the Atlantic Ocean. In January 2022, the first edition of Gothia Cup Cancun will be played. - Mexico is a genuine football country, and it feels extra fun to be able to implement the new tournament now, to be able give the youths hope and faith about the future again, after such a long lock down due to the pandemic, says Dennis Andersson, general secretary at Gothia Cup.
All participating teams will be accommodated in the same all inclusive hotel. The hotel is located right at the beach and offers a wide variety of activities, restaurants and swimming pools.
