Faroe Islands looking forward to the Dana Cup
Dana Cup 2014 will be a sporting experience for up to 500 Faroe Islanders and at the same time the tournament in the Northern part of Denmark will be a huge family experience. As it stands now, we will welcome between 15 to 20 teams from the Faroe Islands to Hjørring next summer.
- It is looking very positive, says the daily leader of the Dana Cup Jette Andersen after a few meetings in Torshavn.
With assistance from Heidi Kollsker and Anja Hartmann Wardum, leaders from HB in Torshavn, the Dana Cup united 6 Faroe Islands clubs who are interested in the tournament next summer. They came from different islands to the evening meeting in HB's clubhouse where they were otherwise very busy with the preparations for a party to celebrate HB just winning the Faroe Islands Championship.
- We met with some very positive people in Torshavn. Most of them are well underway with their travel arrangements but there were a few who were still making their final decision. From my opinion after our meeting they will decide to visit us in Denmark and they will be more than welcome, says Jette Andersen.
The Faroese people have a huge job in organizing their trip. It is mainly children, 12 years of age who participate in the Dana Cup and the parents and other family members are joining them. It will be an invasion of up to 500 Faroe Islanders where most of them extend their stay in Denmark so the trip is both soccer and holidays.
