Dana Cup to open on a new stadium

Dana Cup Hjørring 2019 is going to be a very special experience for the thousands of participants, along with our volunteers and supporters who are engaged in the tournament in July. 

Something very special will be seen at the opening of the Dana Cup Hjørring on Monday the 22nd of July. A brand new and modern stadium - Nord Energi Arena - will welcome the participants as they enter the field for the opening ceremony.

The grass is still as green as always but the surroundings are totally renewed.

There is now covered stands on three sides of the stadium. There has been a tremendous amount of work done during the winter and spring, so the Nord Energi Arena can be ready and welcoming when more than 20.000 young footballers unite in Hjørring in July. 

The official "Opening Ceremony" of the Dana Cup Hjørring 2019 is also being revised and renewed. The new arrangements are currently being set in place and updates will come soon. 

More than 20 million is being invested in the innovation of the Nord Energi Arena, which will raise the quality of Hjørring's sports facilities both in the Dana Cup week and the rest of the year when league matches are played at the stadium.

Here you can see the building in action from the Nord Energi Arena.

We are going to #DanaCup2019


We are a team of Girls 14 born in 2005 from Malvik, just on the outskirts of Trondheim in the middle of Norway. Malvik IL Fotball is a sub-department of Malvik IL. There are many members playing football in Malvik IL Fotball from children under 7 years of age up to senior teams. Malvik IL just recently (in 2018) celebrated its 85th anniversary.

It is the first time we will participate in the Dana Cup Hjørring.

Our goasl and expectations participating in the Dana Cup are first of all to have a fun time together and to build the team spirit and companionship. On the sporting side, we are looking forward to some good games against exciting teams and hopefully from other countries and cultures than the teams we normally play against here at home. We normally play 9:9 football here at home, so we are little excited to see how it is to play 11:11 at the Dana Cup Hjørring.

We are really looking forward to the experience this summer, as Dana Cup has been a goal of ours for a while now.

We are going to #DanaCup2019


We are a very young football club that was formed in 2015. Our goal is to coach young football players individually with certified coaches.

In 2019 it will be the 18th time that I participate in the Dana Cup Hjørring and the 3rd time with Juniors. I participated for the very first time with FC Düren Niderau and in 1987 we held the winning trophy. Since that time, the Dana Cup Hjørring has been something very special for me. My goal in the final, is something I dream about the night before the opening ceremony.

The goal of the Dana Cup is insignificant, as I have experienced how hard it is to get a victory over 18 years. It is much more important to remember the experiences with friends, so many of our friendships today have a common history.

I participate in the Dana Cup Hjørring with my club, to show the players from Juniors how much you can achieve through football without always winning.

1st class buses ready for the Dana Cup 2019

Top rated buses with safety as the highest priority are ready to transport Dana Cup participants from their arrival points to the schools and around between the playing fields in the Northern part of Vendsyssel, where there will be played around 2.500 football games this July.

In 2017 the transport was less efficient, as several buses were detained by the traffic police. The Dana Cup tightened up the transport in 2018 and the tournament was held without any buses being detained. 

- Last year we decided to make a new partnership with Jørns Busrejser from Brønderslev and it has shown to be the perfect solution. Together with his carrier organization, Jørn Pedersen, along with other new implemetations ensured that all buses running the daily routes had an early morning brake test. There were also special requirements set in place for all of the other bus companies who supplied buses to Jørn Pedersen. This ensured a perfect transport solution during the week and our participants were very happy and once again in 2019 the quality of the transport will be just as high - says Director Jette Andersen from the Dana Cup Hjørring. 

Dana Cup has made a two year agreement with Jørns Busrejser to secure quality, confidence and safe bus transport for all of our participants and their families. 

- We had a fantastic experience at the Dana Cup in 2018 and we are looking forward to sending our buses back on the road to transport the Dana Cup participants. It will be just as good or even better than 2018 says Carrier, Jørn Pedersen.

- I have talked with my colleagues and there is a lot of interest to supply buses to the Dana Cup 2019 - so it will be fantastic!
