Over 1,000 Players from the UK and over 1,700 Teams from 80 Nations take part. The Organizers request that everyone has Travel Insurance. 

From Gothia Cup Organizers – Travel Insurance 

Gothia Cup JS Travel Insurance

“The team manager in charge is obligated to ensure that all participants are insured on the pitch. Each participant is responsible for his/her personal insurance off the pitch. Participants from countries that have no medical insurance agreement with Sweden must have personal medical insurance. Neither Gothia Cup nor the organizer has collective insurance to cover injuries, illness, theft or damages.”

Global Health Insurance Card

The UK does have a Medical Insurance agreement with Sweden through the GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card ), however, this does not cover you for Repatriation, Cancellation, and other Benefits, so it’s crucial you obtain travel insurance that covers Football (Amateur Tournament) before you go.

First Aid Staff are available at all the main pitches, you can see them with the Yellow and orange vests.  They are either nurses or physiotherapists.
