Over 20 000 kids and youths are annually traveling to Partille Cup in Gothenburg, to test their strength, the meeting with new friends and to collect new memories. This is a small film about them. Many of them returns in the strive for a new trophy, more friends and yet another experience to share with their friends and teammates.
In this film they get to give their testimonial and view of what it’s like to take part in the largest youth handball tournament in the world, Partille Cup – World of Handball.
The organisation behind the tournament is passionately working with giving them the best conditions sports wise, creating venues for meetings and give the kids the best experience they can find within the handball community. When we hear these kids/youths we get even more motivated to exceed their high expectations. And to all you kids out there: Welcome back, you are Partille Cup!

Partille Cup office is heading back to its birthplace. The office and the organisation behind the tournament will soon move to new locations. The brand new handball temple Partille Arena will be our new home ground.
2013 was the groundbreaking for the new arena, the most modern arena in Sweden that quickly switches from one event to another. The arena will be a multipurpose venue. Partille arena can, for example, act as hall for schoolchildren’s sport lessons in the afternoon, attracting thousands of spectators at a sporting event in the evening and then quickly switched to a cultural event at noon the next day. This makes the arena unique in its kind in the Gothenburg area. Partille Arena will be ready for opening September 16, 2016.
The organisation is very pleased to return to its roots, though the tournament still will be played as usual in City of Gothenburg, so no worries. More information will be presented within shortly.
The end of the summer is coming and Partille Cup has already initiated the preparations for 2017 year’s tournament. It will be played July 3-8 2017.
The registration will open up October 1, so please save the date (!) in order to insure your team the participation of the world’s largest handball tournament for youths!

Welcome to Partille Cup 2017!
Partille Cup 2016 became that great and successful handball party in Gothenburg, just as we hoped it would be!
A total of 3819 games where played on 60 venues at Heden, Valhalla, Kviberg, Överåsvallen and Priority Serneke Arena. In addition, the national team tournament European Open Championship, this year for girls born in 1998, where settled in Lisebergshallen, Valhalla indoor halls and at Scandinavium Arena. In Friday evening’s final of the EOC, the host nation Sweden won 34-33 after an extremely dramatic and suspenseful drama against Denmark.
Participants from 43 countries, more than 21,000 players in 1070 games, did not only play handball during the week, they also got to know Gothenburg, visited Liseberg, had fun in the Players Club disco, where fascinated by the Universeum, traveled to the archipelago, shopped in Östra Nordstan and around the central parts of the city.
Altogether Partille Cup generates SEK 110 million in tourism income and is of course one of the most important events of the year for the city of Gothenburg.
– It’s been a fantastic week and of course we are, despite a few rain showers, on the whole overjoyed that we still where lucky when it came to the weather, says Fredrik Andersson, General Secretary of Partille Cup.
– Especially at Heden the citizens of Gothenburg really helped us all to make Partille Cup such an exciting event. We estimate that more a than quarter of a million people visited us during the week.
In 2017 the Partille Cup event is taking place between the 3rd and the 8th of July.
– 2016 has been our best year so far, Fredrik Andersson says. People I’ve met from all over the world really think we have taken the next step, lifting Partille Cup to the next level. I can’t say that I’m satisfied, you will never be that in my position. But of course I’m happy and proud of what we’ve done this year.
– Still, now we aim to develop further, to make 2017 even better.
When it comes down to pure sport Denmark and Sweden where the most successful countries with six victories each.
