Another year without the Dana Cup

Unfortunately, it is just not possible for us to hold our Dana Cup 2021 tournament this summer.

With a ban on accommodation, our last chance to hold our event has disappeared. 20.000 young footballers will now be extremely disappointed that once again they cannot take part in their beloved youth football tournament the Dana Cup.

Even though it hurts, the management at the Dana Cup has recognized that it is not possible to hold the Dana Cup 2021!

- We have lived in hope, up until the very last minute but with the update from the government last night, we are forced to give up and resign. There will be no Dana Cup 2021, says Director - Jette Andersen.

- We have worked with different scenarios since 2020 but with the decision that we cannot run our tournament with accommodation, it leaves us with only one thing to do and that is to cancel and start our preparations for the Dana Cup 2022.

Now the forced cancellation is a fact. While the Dana Cup informs the rest of the world, that plans are being set for a huge “Come Back” tournament in 2022, the local community are saddened that the festive and lucrative event is once again cancelled.

Dana Cup is a sporting experience and at the same time a social experience during the week, where the world meets on and around the football fields. It is also a week of great economic importance, not just for the Dana Cup but also for the many clubs and associations that contribute with labor and who earn a wage that is of utmost importance for their own operations.

For the city and the surrounding areas, the cancellation of the Dana Cup has a serious consequence.

- But there is not much else we can do but roll up our sleeves and use our creativity, says Jette Andersen.

- We will start selling the Dana Cup 2022 straight away and we are confident for our next event.

- Our biggest challenge is maintaining our volunteers. Dana Cup is dependent on around 2.000 volunteers who provide their services to us, so we can warmly welcome 20.000 young footballers to Hjørring in July to play football, meet new friends and have fun together.

We will ensure that our volunteers are ready to welcome you all to the opening of the Dana Cup 25-30 July 2022.

For further information please contact Jette Andersen 45 30 94 23 20.

Denmark is getting ready to open up after COVID-19!

This gives us hope. 

We are preparing to hold the Dana Cup 2021 and are waiting for a final message from the Danish Government. 

We cannot wait to get back on the playing field, children are being sent back to school, controlled indoors sports are back, outdoors sports are coming soon, discussions to get spectators back in the stands and on the sidelines and much more. 

All of this gives helps us stay optimistic, after a dark year. 

A COVID-19 Vaccine Passport is on the way and the number of vaccinations is on the rise. 

Here in Denmark, the Danish Authorities have set up a group of experts, who will deliver a plan in the middle of April, on how to successfully kick start sporting events and how to get fans back into sports.  

The political parties believe that larger sporting events and cultural events will be possible as more and more people are being vaccinated. 

We feel optimistic and understand we need to be patient just a little longer.

When the group of experts deliver their start up plan and our politicians decide the process of how to move forward, we will be able to come with a new update.  

We recommend that you too are patient, as we wait and prepare for the next move. 

Here at the Dana Cup we would like to reassure you that we will be 100% prepared to hold our tournament in full accordance to the health and safety regulations that will follow.

Stay strong and keep safe! Welcome to the Dana Cup Hjørring 26-31 July 2021!

Vladimir Makarikhin & Eugene Kuklya

The football team Rhythm from Russia where regular guests at the Dana Cup from 1992 to 2014 - 38 teams over 18 years.

Vladimir Makarikhin the leader of Rhythm devoted his life to the club, to the members and personally raised the funds each year to travel over 5.000 kilometers, spending 6 days in a train and bus to get to his second home in Denmark, Bindslev.

Vladimir sadly passed away in 2014 and he is missed both in Rhythm and here within the Dana Cup Family.

Eugene Kuklya was the translator for Vladimir and remembers his time in Hjørring - Denmark fondly. Eugene is hoping to return with Rhythm and also with Dinamo, where his daughter Anna is now playing football.

We look forward to seeing Rhythm & Dinamo some time in the future.
