Two Teams Welcomed at Town Hall

In keeping with tradition, Monday morning the mayor of Hjørring welcomed two teams in the old town hall. Previously, representatives of Selection Regional from Honduras and Santisimo Nombre de Jesus together with mayor Arne Boelt had symbolically lit the flame, which continues to burn throughout Dana Cup 2013.

The event at the town hall signalled the beginning of one of the world's biggest football tournaments. Thus, many months of preparation is replaced by football boots and sweaty t-shirts.

On behalf of Hjørring mayor Arne Boelt welcomed the players to the town and the local area, plus he said a few words about the municipality of Hjørring and the history of the town.

Also the leader of Dana Cup, Jette Andersen, used the opportunity to welcome the participants.

The two South American teams had brought along many gifts, especially for mayor Arne Boelt, plus representatives of the players and coaches gave beautiful speeches in English.

Finally, the players of Honolulu Bulls Soccer Club from Hawaii performed a lovely traditional dance and they got a big round of applause.
