Plan the Trip Home
Staff at the tournament’s department of transport have felt rather warm today, even though temperatures have only begun to rise slightly. For several different reasons, a number of teams have forgotten to inform Dana Cup that they need transport from, in particular, the ferries to either the centre area or one of the schools. The missing busses have presented some challenges for the staff at the department of transport.
‘Consequently, we encourage all teams in need of transport to ferries, trains or airplanes to make sure that transport home has been booked. As a matter of fact, deadline for ordering transport is on Tuesday, so that we can inform the transport companies in advance’, head of transport, Jørgen Nielsen, underlines.
Hjørring Supports Dana Cup
‘Of course, our members support Dana Cup and 70 shops stay open the entire week until 8.00 pm enabling the participants to shop when the last goal has been scored,’ smiles Rikke Ejsenhardt, who also invites the participants to a number of free events in the town centre.
Tuesday afternoon, while playing Sweeper Arm, it is possible to test the ability to stay on your legs with the boom arm charging towards you, also known from Ninja Warriors. Thursday and Friday afternoon one can play Rodeo Football and Barcelona Kicker, which is partly about keeping the balance on a football and partly about testing the leg muscles with Barcelona Kicker.
2705 Games Before the Winners are Found
With 1067 participating teams in this year’s Dana Cup, 2705 matches will be played before the winners are found in the last final Saturday night.
’That’s how it looks right now, but things might easily change. As late as this morning, we found out that a team from Nigeria had just been granted a visa and is therefore on its way to Dana Cup,’ the head of the tournament Ole Vang Bruun explains.
The first games will start Tuesday morning at 7.30 am.
Last Adjustments before the Tournament Starts
This morning the boys from Norwegian Arna-Bjørnar were in full swing with the final preparations before the games start Tuesday morning. Coach Jørn Frode Mjelde is looking forward to the players taking action in U14.
’We do an easy practice session to get in a good mood and to avoid injuries. But, first and foremost, it’s about training on the grass pitches,’ explains coach Jørn Frode Mjelde and also mentions that he is very happy to stay in a school close to the pitches.
Finally, coach Jørn Frode Mjelde says that it is not important whether or not the end up in the A or B finals but, on the other hand, having fun.

A Week of Football and Friendship
Hjørring Welcomes You
In keeping with tradition the mayor of Hjørring, Arne Boelt, welcomed the players to Dana Cup. Tucuman from Argentina and Liverpool FC from England were invited to a special event at the town hall, where the mayor talked about the town and the area.
’Normally 65,000 people live in Hjørring municipality, but in the summer we are around 100,000. We have some of the country’s finest sandy beaches, which attract many tourists. And so does Dana Cup. The town of Hjørring has 25,000 inhabitants and this week we are more than 45,000 people in the town’, said Arne Boelt, who also expressed great pleasure in hosting a football tournament that brings together so many young people from around the world.
Later the mayor gave gifts to the players and managers, just as there were refreshments for all.
On the other hand, the managers of the two teams expressed their pleasure in participating in Dana Cup and to be selected to meet the mayor, who was given t-shirts from both Tucuman and Liverpool FC.

Nordic showdown on the big screen
We have made an agreement so the UEFA Women's Euro 2017 game between Norway and Denmark can be shown at the Dana Cup.
The game will be played at Stadion De Adelaarshorst in Deventer, 144 kilometers east of Amsterdam, with kick off at 20:45.
The game takes place at the same time as the opening ceremony is taking place at the Nord Energi Arena. With many Norwegian participants, there is a lot of interest for the match in Holland, so our Dana Cup participants cannot miss out on the opportunity to see the match.
How much of the game that will be seen is unsure, as it depends on the opening ceremony but we expect to be able to see most of the second half and end of the game.
The game will be shown on two big screens, one at the Nord Energi Arena and one at the HALLEN Park Vendia on Ths. Morildsvej.
