Dana Cup participant record on the way

 

It looks like the Dana Cup 2016 will be another record in terms of the number of participants. 

Registrations are now officially closed and here at the Dana Cup we are checking and adjusting the registrations that have come in. 

- We always wait a little before annoucing the number of teams entered in our tournament, as we like to be as correct as possible but there is no doubt that we will make a new record this year with around 1.150 teams. That is an 11% increase from 2015 says Dana Cup Marketing Coordinator, Alison Leigh Forman. 

If any teams have forgotten or missed the deadline, take contact to the Dana Cup immediately and we will see if we have space in our record tournament. 

In 2015 the Dana Cup in Hjørring held a record with 1.087 teams from 42 nations. This year there is not only more teams but more nations. At this time we have 56 nations registered. 

The following nations are participating:

Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, England, Eritrea, Estland, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Guatemala, Iceland, Indonesien, India, Ireland, Jordan, Kenya, Korea, Kosovo, Liberia, Malta, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Palestine, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, USA, US Virgin Islands, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.

Now that our teams are registered we are looking forward to our fantastic cooperation with our volunteers, cooperating clubs and the entire Hjørring Community. 

We stand united to ensure that the Dana Cup is an enormous experience for our guests. Every aspect is thoroughly planned so the 30.000 players, trainers, leaders and supporters receive a perfect welcome and experience in Hjørring in the end of July. 

We must ensure the surroundings and our entire event where the young footballers can meet and experience their shared passion for football, respect, unity, friendship and much more.

We are looking forward to seeing you here in Hjørring!

Tell us briefly the history of your club/team?

Our team was formed at school No. 31 in the city of Kostroma, Russia. I worked there as a sports teacher. Russian Football Federation held a football tournament among the schools and we decided to try to participate. I gathered quick and nimble girls and we went to our first tournament and without any training we immediately took 2nd place. I understood they were talented girls, and in the future they could play football very well. I asked them to think about it for a month and if they want to continue to play football, I'll train them. Two days later they came to me and said, that they wanted to play football. There were 6 people on our first training. Now there are 12. In our city there are no girls football teams, we have go to other cities to play control games. We have a dream to develop women's football in the city and region. Your event will help us to fulfill our dream!

Is it your first time at the Dana Cup if not how many times has your club participated?

It is the first time we'll come to Dana Cup and it will be our first trip to Europe. Thank you very much for the invitation. 

What are your goals and expectations for the Dana Cup 2016?

We are looking forward to come to Denmark. And we want to be friends with boys and girls from all over the world. We also want many people to learn more about us and to promote women's football. Your Cup will help us to do it, will make our dream come true and soon there would be a lot of women's teams in Kostroma.

Richmond Park FC from England - B15, G13 and G12

 

Tell us briefly the history of your club/team?

Our club was formed in 2014 with one boys' team but then grew the following summer to include 3 girls' teams. Next year we will expand further and will also start running a mini soccer school for 6-9 year olds. Our club draws players from the Richmond Park area in South West London.

Is it your first time at the Dana Cup if not how many times has your club participated?

Our boys participated last year and had a phenomenal time! I think that for many of them it was the best week of their lives, not just in a football sense bit also socially- they made friends that they still stay in touch with today. For us, Dana Cup is the highlight of the year and is a great reward after a long, hard English football season.

What are your goals and expectations for the Dana Cup 2016?

For the boys we would like to go further than last year where we lost on penalties in the third knock-out round of the B competition. For our G12 and G13 gils' teams we have high expectations but we are also intrigued to see how they match up against international teams. They could go far. The most important thing though is that everyone has an enjoyable week in Denmark and that the players (and leaders!) create memories for life.

Dana Cup delivers sufficient funds to Hjørring

 

Dana Cup is the largest Danish sporting event and the majority of the money comes from abroad.

So it is confirmed the truth about Dana Cup's economic importance for the local community. Epinion, together with VisitDenmark did a survey at the Dana Cup 2015 and it shows that the huge youth football tournament brings in 179 million in tourist revenues with 174 million or 97% coming from abroad.

In 2015 there were 29.000 Dana Cup tourists in the Hjørring area. It looks like there will be more tourists in 2016.

With this huge turnover the Dana Cup is Denmark's largest sporting event in front of other events like: The Men's European Handball Championships, The European Championships for show jumping and dressage, Giro d'Italia, Made in Denmark Golf Tournament, World Cup in Badminton and The European Swimming Championships. 

- We have many to thank for the success of our tournament over the years. We have 40 cooperating clubs who we must thank for their enormous efforts in helping make everything happen and I am extremely grateful for their positive feedback and also from the thousands who participate in the Dana Cup, says Director Jette Andersen.

The survey that was coordinated and analysed by VisitDenmarks analyst Martin Fonnesbech-Sandberg, shows us that the huge turnover around the Dana Cup provides 207 jobs a year in Hjørring, contributing to a gross value (BNP) of 100 million kroner locally and in total 101 million kroner internationally. 

There is also delivered 64 million in taxes in Hjørring, with 11 million being municipal income taxes.
