Tell us briefly the history of your club/team?
Lillehammer KFK was founded in 1987. The club is located in Lillehammer, mostly known for it's winter sports but the football scene is also big in Lillehammer, the city has two major football clubs. Lillehammer KFK is one of them and in our club we have only female soccer players. We have around 380 members and 33 teams starting from 7 years old up to senior level. LKFK also has a first team playing in the third division. It is a young team with an average age of 20 years. Many of our senior teams have participated in the Dana Cup before and two of our players will play in the G17 class at the Dana Cup 2016.
Is it your first time at the Dana Cup if not how many times has your club participated?
Lillehammer KFK has participated in the Dana Cup many times, the last time was in 2015. We played in G16, G14 and G13 with a total of 5 teams. Our G13 made it to the quarter finals of the A-final rounds, G14 made it to the quarter finals of the B-final rounds and our G16 were knocked out after a penalty shoot out in the semi final of the B-final rounds.
Our G13 won their division here this year and also won the Faaberg tournament for 13 year olds, they will play G14 at the Dana Cup 2016. Our G14 team have had a fantastic season with a super effort in both the tournament and cup. They came 4th in the 14 class at the Faaberg tournament and will play G14 at next years Dana Cup. Our G16 team will play G17 at the Dana Cup 2016. They want to improve at next years Dana Cup tournament.
What are your goals and expectations for the Dana Cup 2016?
We are travelling with 6 teams in total in G17, G15, G14 and G13 next summer. We will be around 120 persons in total. Our G13 will be participating at the Dana Cup for the first time and they are very excited and really looking forward to the tournament. One of the goals for all of our teams is to have a sporty, fun and memorable cup where they make new friends and many wonderful experiences during the week. The teams wish to do as good as they can and they wish to make it further in the tournament then they did this year.
