Your Sport Swindon is delighted to announce that we’ve teamed up with Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust to bring you all the action from their Gothia Cup campaign in Sweden next week.
This fantastic partnership means the Your Sport cameras will be out in Sweden comprehensively covering Swindon’s five competing teams in the event.
We’ll be bringing you lots of video highlights from the matches, interviews and all the breaking news from the Swindon camp.
We fly out to Sweden with the teams on Sunday and we’ll be building up to the event, which starts next Monday, with five interviews from each Swindon team.
Swindon are taking a record number of five teams to the Gothia Cup this year, including two boys teams – the first time the Trust has ever taken boys to the competition.
Representing Swindon this year for the girls are the under 14’s, under 15’s and under 16’s while the boys competing are the under 16’s and under 14’s.
This will be the 10th year that Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust have taken part in the Gothia Cup and will include a very special moment for one of their players.
Swindon’s Lauren Doble will play a leading part in the Gothia Cup’s opening ceremony on Monday evening in her role as England’s representative. Lauren will read out the Gothia Cup Oath in front of 50,000 spectators before officially announcing the Gothia Cup 2016 open.
Trust Manager Jon Holloway said: “We are very excited to have teamed up with Your Sport Swindon, which will enable our teams and players to get to get the very best coverage on their Gothia Cup experience.
“It will also be a great way for the parents and families back in Swindon to follow their teams progress through the tournament.”
Your Sport Swindon managing director Steve Butt said: “We are extremely honoured and privileged to be joining Swindon Town Football in the Community at the Gothia Cup.
“The Gothia Cup is a massive worldwide competition and for Swindon to have five teams competing there is just fantastic.
“It will be a great experience for the players and thanks to our daily and comprehensive coverage from the event hopefully everyone back home in England can feel part of the competition too.”
