On a North Atlantic visit


Dana Cup is very well known in the North Atlantic. This was confirmed when the leader of Sales and Marketing, Alison Leigh Forman and Accommodations leader, Kasper Poulsen visited the Saga Island. There is a good indication that the contacts made on the trip will result in more Icelandic teams at the Dana Cup 2014.

- It was a wonderful experience to visit the Icelandic clubs and our travel agents. They had good knowledge of the Dana Cup and we experienced a very positive response to our tournament, says Alison Leigh Forman.

- The Icelandic teams that have visited the Dana Cup earlier have returned home with positive reports and have shared these thoughts throughout Iceland. 

One thing that the Icelandic teams really appreciate, is the short distances between the accommodation, playing fields and the Dana Cup center area. They feel right at home, as in Reykjavik you can go everywhere within 10 minutes.

Dana Cup meet with a dozen Icelandic clubs and many of them are planning on a trip to Hjørring in 2014 with their teams.

Dana Cup meet with Breiðablik, Fjølnir, Fylkir, Grótta, HK, KR, Stjarnan, Thróttur and Valur at their clubhouses and through a Dana Cup Presentation Meeting.

Apart from the soccer clubs Alison Leigh Forman and Kasper Poulsen meet with their travel agents, who were very interested in Dana Cup packages. 

There was also talk of other sporting tours in conjunction with the Dana Cup.

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.

Jette Andersen

General Director

 Goodbye – Thanks – See You Next Year!

Once again a special Dana Cup – the biggest ever – has come to an end. We do not doubt that it has also been the best!

The Danish summer supported Dana Cup, the sun smiled on the participants, the football fields kept the green colour throughout the week and the game was a manifestation of happiness.

We owe players and coaches from the 921 teams a great thanks for the immense efforts every-body has contributed to make Dana Cup 2013 a huge experience!

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.
