Tell us your story - Minsk FC - Belarus - G13 and G12


Tell us briefly the history of your club/team?
Is it your first time at the Dana Cup, if not how many times has your club participated before?
What are your goals and expectations for the Dana Cup 2018?

FC Minsk girls from Belarus are the winners of Dana Cup 2017 in the youngest category of G12. This year unknown team from the heart of Western Europe made a fantastic journey with 1900km length by the bus and have won all their games at the tournament. At the starting game of the group stage they have made an astonishing result with 25 goals in the net of the opponent. Now it’s time to find out, who are they?

The coach of the team Andrei Makhnach telling the story: "FC Minsk is the biggest football school in the country. Among 1000 boys, about 250 girls learn football here. I am a coach of the girls 2005-2006 year born. Our history started from the 15th of September 2014. It was the first time when I gather 8-9 years old girls at the football training. All this time I have been chosen the best talented girls in the city and learn them to play football with passion, to understand the game in all its paints. Now we are the winners of all local tournaments at any level. Dana Cup 2017 for us was like a big exam. We have passed it perfectly; girls have shown really high level of play. Our team was happy to be not only the part but the winners of such an incredible sport event like Dana Cup. In 2018 we are going to bring here in Hjorring two high level teams who will try to show the best football skills in G12 and G13 categories.

We invite everybody to subscribe to our YouTube channel here and follow all the news from our everyday life. I am absolutely sure that in future at least one or two girls from our squad can sparkle in the sky of world women's football. Dana Cup has gave us the chance to believe in our strengths. It’s atmosphere is the best that we have ever seen and we want to return here again and again."

JR - John Robert Larsen - has passed away

 
Fortuna and Dana Cup have lost an enthusiast who, more than 50 years ago started to set the stage for women's football in Hjørring and 36 years ago initiated the International Youth Soccer Tournament - Dana Cup Hjørring - which has proved to be one of the Worlds largest and a huge asset, not only for youth football but also for Hjørring City and the whole region. 

John Robert Larsen, who became known throughout the world as "JR" has passed away, 75 years old. 10 years ago he lost his wife Gerda. He is survived by his sons Jimmy and Tommy. 

JR was born and raised in Toftegade, Hjørring. A lot of football was played in the street and when he reached an appropriate age it was only natural that he was registered with the football club, AIK Hjørring FREM. JR was not that old when his interest and talent for managment and leadership started to blossom. All of a sudden he was a trainer, board member and much more. Football was a huge part of his life but he also took time to do his education.
 
JR studied at the timber company, Møller Lee. After his studies there he wanted to try something different, so he started a job at the Hirtshals Fish Auction. It was at this time in Hirthals that JR got the idea to start the Dana Cup and the first tournament took place in 1982. This happened 20 years after he was the initiator for the women's football club, Fortuna. It was Fortuna who created the Dana Cup. The club wanted to move forward and that needed more money than could be collected by a traditional bingo game. 

In the start, the Dana Cup was of a size that JR could also keep his job at the fish auction. Without the full knowledge of the auction master, he had contact with clubs all around the world. However, in 1984 there was so much Dana Cup work that JR became employed full time for the Dana Cup. JR had an amazing ability to unite people around him and his energy and initiative was infective and everything flourished. The same with the Dana Cup and it gave Fortuna the opportunity for better results. These were organizations characterized by cohesion.

Fortuna and Dana Cup became JR’s life. Here he spent most of his time - as Manager of Fortuna and Director of the Dana Cup. His engagement in Fortuna, brought him in contact with the entire Danish Football Community and he became an institution for women's football. He was honored with DBU's Silver Pin and of course and Honorary Member of Fortuna Hjørring.

JR fought to make the Dana Cup international and he succeeded. In particular, Brazilian football players were close to his heart.
 
Dana Cup put him in contact with the whole world. Whether they came to the Dana Cup from Brazil, Canada, Russia, Nigeria, Australia or Scandinavia it was always JR they wanted to say hello to and talk with. Just as much as the Dana Cup has become an institution within the football world, JR became the same.

When JR stopped his daily work at the Dana Cup in 2012, he remained active in Dana Cup's background, where his experience was invaluable and greatly appreciated and to such an extent that he was appointed "Honorary President".
 
During the busy football season in the 80's, JR had a little time for some council work. At that time it was a little too stagnant for JR's temperament. In recent years he resumed his activities in local politics and this time he was warmly welcome within his group in the city council hall. The Social Democracy and Hjørring City Council could now enjoy and benefit from his local insight.

Releases fresh colours of Visaro and Furon

 

Striking new colour boots for players who ‘Dictate the play’ or ‘Devastate the defence’

New Balance Football reveals fresh and striking colour updates of the Furon 3.0 and Visaro 2.0 boot collections. The new colour Furon features a combination of Bolt and Royal Blue, with Energy Red accents across the upper and studs, giving it a stand out look. The Visaro has been updated with a Black finish to the upper, with Bolt Blue highlights on the laces soleplate and studs.

Furon 3.0 is designed for players that step onto the pitch for a single, momentous opportunity, defining the outcome of a game by devastating the opposition’s defence. The boots have been designed with accuracy and acceleration in mind. A lightweight-engineered hybrid mesh with zonal support frame allows a cleaner strike for deadly finishing. Engineered with a lightweight TPU/Polyester mesh upper for explosive power and ball feel, the Furon encompasses a Fantom Fit selective melt process which forms fused areas on the boot for increased durability, structure and support around the foot. A data designed REVlite foam insert provides directional in-boot traction, targeted for acceleration motions and cushioning. Furon players Jesus Navas and Kevin Mirallas will debut the new colour boots in-match this weekend.
 
Complementing this release is a new colourup for the Visaro 2.0 boot. Visaro players take to the pitch for one reason; to dictate the play. With movement, passing accuracy and game changing creativity, they influence the game everywhere, all the time. The Visaro features data driven Hexaprene control and strike zones and an athlete inspired pro form last. A one piece form fitting moccasin construction helps to deliver ultra-precise long and short passing, as well as game changing invention. Data driven multi-directional stud placement, an engineered soleplate with lightweight chassis, and Fresh Foam midsole unit all contribute to outstanding dynamic maneuverability and enhanced comfort.
 
General Manager of New Balance Football Richard Wright said, “We’ve see a great reception to Furon 3.0, and we’ve worked closely with our players to develop this next colourway of Furon and Visaro. It’s a clean and bold set of colours which will be instantly recognisable on the pitch and we’re sure that pro and park players alike will really like them.”

The new Furon and Visaro boots will be available globally at: 
 
 
from 2 November 2017.
