Shenyang is the largest city in northeastern China with over 8 million inhabitants. The city profiles itself as China’s football capital and welcomes the Gothia Cup China with open arms.

Shenyang offers all the conditions to organize a world class youth tournament. The main center for the matches will be the newly build Gothia Football Park which has 40 football fields gathered in one place right in the city centre along the beautiful Hunhe River.

The Opening ceremony and the finals will be at the Crystal Crown Arena, with capacity for about 60,000 people. The arena was first used for the football tournament at the Olympics in Beijing.

Accommodation will primarily be provided at the city’s two universities that can offer sleeping facilities for more than 20,000 people. The dormitories have 4-6 beds and offers plenty of space and comfort. There will also be options for those who wish to stay in hotels.
