Dana Cup with Boca Juniors
Boca Juniors, the huge Argentine club who fostered Diego Maradona, have now been informed about the Dana Cup.
Representatives from the Dana Cup, Director Jette Andersen, Marketing Manager Alison Leigh Forman, Agent Patricia Espinosa and Press Manager Torben Vandsted, received a warm reception when they visited the club in Buenos Aires.
- It is both overwhelming and inspirational to be welcomed at such a club and I feel it was a very warm welcome we received, says Jette Andersen.
- Boca Juniors has a comprehensive youth policy, which includes a football school for young talented players aged 14 and 15 years.
The information and visit that we had to the school, gave us some interesting thoughts and ideas in relation to our own mother club of the Dana Cup, Fortuna Hjørring.
- Boca Juniors are used to travelling with their young players. I believe that they are very interested in travelling to the Dana Cup but perhaps not this year, says Alison Leigh Forman.
- But it looks like they will, along with other Argentine clubs who we have visited, start their planning to visit the Dana Cup in the near future.
It was, in my opinion, a very exciting meeting.
Dana Cup visited the entire Boca Juniors complex and the clubs museum, where it was natural to see Diego Maradona as prominent figure.
