Dana Cup has lost its Master of Ceremonies
Jens Jørgen Gaardbo Andersen, aged 67 has passed away.
JAN. 11-15 // LOS ANGELES
Kasper Poulsen's funeral is on the 9th of December at 1.30 pm at the Sct. Catharinæ Church in Hjørring
At the Dana Cup and Fortuna Hjørring we have lost a fantastic employee and friend. Kasper Poulsen passed away on Saturday the 26th of November.
Kasper meant a lot to all of us, he made sacrifices for us and we are many who had the pleasure of knowing and meeting Kasper. It was not only in Hjørring that Kasper's good humor and helpfulness was felt. We know this, as condolances are flooding in from all around the Word from people who felt his helpfullness and who learned to appreciate him.
Kasper's spirit is closely linked to the Dana Cup and Fortuna. His heart was in Fortuna and with young footballers generally. We wish to keep Kasper's memory alive and feel that it is appropriate to establish a Kasper Poulsen Travel Fund. Even though it looked like Kasper lived his life only in Fortuna and at the Dana Cup, he also loved to explore the World outside of Landlyst and Park Vendia. He could recount numerous adventures to many places, with the USA being a favourite.
Future football players and leaders must also have the opportunity to experience the great "Football World". Kasper Poulsen's Travel Fund will make this possible. The fund will be administered by a committee in Fortuna and the Dana Cup. Part of the capital and returns will be distributed evenly to footballers and leaders, both individual players and teams. The distribution from the fund will take place once a year. The committee can decide to distribute several times. Guidelines for the fund are being prepared.
Kasper Poulsen's funeral is on Friday the 9th of December at 1.30 pm at the Sct. Catharinæ Kirke in Hjørring. Afterwards their is a memorial gathering at the Dana Cup SportsCenter.
The fund is already established and you can contribute with an amount instead of flowers to Kasper's Travel Fund.

Broke the Rules – Trophy Seized
For the first time in Dana Cup's 35-year-history, on Saturday, it was necessary to seize a trophy due to gross violation of tournament rules.
Gjakova KF from Kosovo, who won silver in B13 and had been given a trophy, had used illegal players and provided falsified personal data. When Dana Cup's board found out they decided to seize the trophy.
Dana Cup has thus demonstrated a very consistent position. No kind of violation of tournament rules will be tolerated.
Subsequently, Dana Cup's board consider if the behaviour of the team from Kosovo will have long-term consequences, for example, in the form of a fixed-term exclusion from Dana Cup.
