Partille Cup is the best tournament in the world. I have participated ten or eleven times. Even today, I try to visit Partille Cup as often as I can, which tends to be every year. I love to stroll on Heden, in the very center of Gothenburg, and meet people from all over the world. Partille Cup’s effort to make handball a global sport can not be underestimated.

Partille Cup is one of the most important ambassadors for the world of handball. I myself played a couple of times, but it’s not the results that first pops up in mind but rather the warm atmosphere and all the laughter and all the meetings with people from all over the world.

I have been involved in Partille Cup twice, I think it’s the perfect tournament for young handball players! I look back on my trips to Gothenburg and Partille Cup with joy. The matches are played outdoors which I think makes it extra fun.

I’ve actually never played Partille Cup myself, but I’ve been a coach several times, participated in the Opening Ceremonies and a few exhibition matches. I am at place every year to meet with handball friends and to soak up the unique atmosphere in the heart of Gothenburg.

I have only positive memories of Gothenburg, there were two glorious weeks when we won the European Open in 2005! It was a while ago, but even today, when I hear about Partille Cup and Gothenburg, it creates only positive feelings.
