Impressive Honour to Dana Cup's 'Dad'
In 1982 the then manager of Fortuna Hjørring came up with the idea of arranging a football tournament for youth players in Hjørring.
Dana Cup was born.
And since then the tournament has just continued to grow. More and more teams from more and more countries have come to Hjørring in the last week of July, and Dana Cup has turned into the world's third largest football tournament for youth – and with more than 40 nations even the most international.
Throughout all the years John Robert Larsen has work tirelessly for Dana Cup and even if he is no longer in charge of the huge event, he still helps out.
His huge contribution and involvement was deservedly celebrated by presenting him with the title of honorary president as a token of respect on Tuesday evening at the traditional VIP-evening in Vendia Hallen. The chairman of Dana Cup's board, Ole Vang Bruun, presented him with the honorary title.
