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.

Dana Cup Organisation
Skills and commitment gave Pequeninos do Jockey the victory against Norwegian Steinkjer.
Two Teams - Two Titles
B16: Pequeninos do Jockey (BRA) - Steinkjer FK (NOR) 3 - 0 (2 - 0)
The last gold medals of the day are also on the way to Brazil. Likewise, Pequeninos do Jockey won the trophy in B16 with spirit and commitment – flavoured with great skills. Viewed in the light of these facts, the Brazilians deserved to win.
All the Brazilians played with a lot of energy and never felt stressed even though Steinkjer tried to pressure them during the entire match. Steinkejr's players ran and fought exemplary with an apparent unfailing source of energy, but skills and Brazilian commitment won.
And even though it looked rather simple at times, the players from the country that is famous for Samba dance had to fight hard in an entertaining final.
By the way, both clubs have previously tried to win B16. Pequeninos do Jockey won in 2004, and Steinkjer won last year.
Happiness in Kenya
They are not going to lacks any footballs, when Ushari Spoti from Kenya returns from Dana Cup.
The African boys were happy when the received a grand gift of footballs on Dana Cup's last day.
Sabrina Abramowski from the German club Cloppenburg BV had brought along 10 wonderful balls from the club back home in Germany. It was meant as a gift for some young players, who found it rather difficult to do their sport without the proper accessories. Sabrina Abramowski and Dana Cup decided to give the ten balls a future in Kenya. The happy Kenyans gave expression to their gratitude. Thus, everybody knew that it was the right decision.
Anticipated Brazilian Victory
B14: Bærum SK (NOR) - Pequeninos do Jockey (BRA) 0 - 2 (0 - 0)
If everybody had predicted that Brazilian Pequeninos do Jockey was going to beat Norwegian Bærum SK in the final in B14, then nobody had told the Norwegian boys. Bærum SK played their own game believing that the Brazilian favourites could be beaten by proper Norwegian football.
Therefore, one should praise Bærum SK to the skies because they played some of the most positive football at this year's finals. Not least considering the fact that the Norwegian boys in the yellow jerseys were much smaller than their opponents. For instance, some of the Brazilian players did not mind having a shoot on goal from the middle of the pitch – hard kicks, even.
Consequently, it did not come as a huge surprise when Pequeninos won gold medals but, in reality, Bærum SK was the positive surprise.
