A top notch Dana Cup!
We are now relaxing a little after a Dana Cup that will go down in history as one of the best ever tournaments and also the biggest so far.
We are under the impression, due to indications from others, that it is not just the Dana Cup organization that feels it was a very successful week here in Hjørring.
This can only happen when our thousands of participants, hundreds of volunteers, our fantastic co-operating clubs and the entire community stand together to make the Dana Cup 2013, the 32nd of it's kind, a wonderful experience.
921 teams from 44 countries, around 20,000 players and leaders participated in the Dana Cup 2013. There were played 2,300 games and the 250 soccer balls that were put into play, rolled happily around in the best possible summer weather.
On top of such a tournament you feel a tremendous amount of joy and happiness. We started one of the largest Dana Cup tournaments ever and were of course a little nervous. Would it run as smoothly as normal? And yes it ran even better.
We owe all the clubs that sent their teams to the Dana Cup and their players and leaders who travelled here to make the Dana Cup 2013 a huge success - a very big thanks!
Once again this could only happen with the enormous support from the many local clubs and other partners we work together with and we feel that the local authorites really stood behind the event.
We are now preparing for the Dana Cup 2014 and our goal is to make it as good as this years tournament. We hope you enjoyed your experience here this summer and return once again in 2014 and feel free to spread the word about the Dana Cup Hjørring all around the World.
Many thanks for 2013 and see you again in 2014 from the 21st to the 26th of July.
On behalf of the Dana Cup Organization.
