Welcome to Argentina!
An interest for the Dana Cup is established in Argentina after a visit to the top club, Club Atletico River Plate. The Director, Rodrigo Daskal from the club that has been the Champions of Argentina 34 times and who are currently ranked number 2, is very interested in a co-operation with the Dana Cup to send Argentine soccer teams to Hjørring in the last week of July.
- It is very exciting to meet with such a highly ranked Argentine soccer club, who without a doubt has a countless number of talented young soccer players. They can help to improve the quality of the Dana Cup. At the same time they are very interested in hearing more about the organization of the tournament. The idea can maybe, in one way or another, be planted in Buenos Aires, says the Director of the Dana Cup, Jette Andersen.
- I hope that we will see teams from Argentina at the Dana Cup 2014 this summer but realistically it is most probably in 2015 that we will see the efforts of our intensified marketing in Latin America, says Marketing Manager Alison Leigh Forman.
- I believe that we will see new teams at the Dana Cup very soon. These teams are teams that the Europeans love to play against.
During the visit in Argentina, the Dana Cup is receiving invaluable assistance from the Latin American quality organization Inlac, while they are meeting with leaders and players from different clubs. There are also meetings with Argentine politicians and the Danish Embassy in Buenos Aires.
