Our project promotes the place where sport, culture and values have a place to get together. Where a force can grow to really make a difference, not only on the field but also in the world.
Partille Cup is the world’s largest and most international handball tournament for youth. The event takes place in Gothenburg every summer. Since its beginning in 1970, over 400 000 participants from 96 different countries spread across six continents have participated in the event. Each year some 21 000 participants representing 1200 teams participate in the Partille Cup and there is no sign of slowing growth!
In 2018, Partille Cup will be played for the 49th consecutive year.
Partille Cup is one of the world’s most famous events in youth handball. The tournament is important from many reasons. For one it brings so many visitors to Sweden and Gothenburg, but for us, one of the most important reason is that of the Partille Cup’s ability to make magic by encouraging and fostering both a local and international sense of community.
