We are going to #DanaCup2019
This is the very first time that a girls’ team from Heming IL in Oslo will participate at the Dana Cup Hjørring. We are 11 girls born in 2007 who are super excited and looking forward to playing and experiencing Hjørring. We were the lucky winners of the New Balance and Torshov Sport Fotball competition held in Norway late last year.
Heming Fotball is one of the largest amateur football clubs in Oslo, Norway with just under 1.200 active players. In 2016, Heming formed a partnership with one of the most successful clubs in Northern Europe, FC Copenhagen. The partnership includes, among other things, the option for our coaches to receive specific development training programs. In Heming, we have children and youth football, senior and veteran football for both sexes. Heming Fotball has a long historical background, going back to 1916 but at that time, they only had a football option for boys. The first girls’ team was established in 1985 and today football is the largest sport for girls in our club.
It is the first time our girls from Heming will participate in the Dana Cup Hjørring and we hope to participate many times in the years to come.
There are several Global Goals that are current goals for us but if we have to choose just one, than our girls choose the Global Goal 13 ”Climate Action”. Our girls are concerned with the environmental changes happening around the World. They hope the World will remain healthy and viable for themselves and future generations. - Read more about the Global Goals here
Our final goal for the Dana Cup Hjørring is to fully enjoy the week with joy, happiness, unity and teamwork among the girls, no serious injuries and last but not least, to have a memorable experience with our team, the coaching staff and supporters.
We are going to #DanaCup2019
We’re actually celebrating our 5th birthday this year! We were formed in 2014 with just one team and now we have teams from U8 to U16 and over 150 players. We are based in Richmond in South West London.
We have participated at Dana Cup every year, we are your biggest fans! Seriously though, we love coming to Hjørring every year, it’s the highlight of the season. We love meeting international teams and making new friends.
Our goal is the same as ever: first and foremost to have a good time! On the sporting side we have some good teams and have previously played in two B Finals, winning in 2015 and runners-up in 2017. If we could get to another final that would be amazing.
We support Global Goal 13 "Climate Action” Several of our players joined the School Strike inspired by Greta Thunberg. - Read more about the Global Goals here

AUSTRALIA KF, is a Kosovan football club based in Mitrovica, Kosovo.
Founded on 17 May 2009 as Mitrovica Football Club, the club has traditionally worn a yellow home kit.
The name of the club "AUSTRALIA" derives from the life and work of Jeton Ujkani in the state of Australia, one of the founders of the club. The club took on football for boys, but also with girls, our club was one of the first clubs in Kosovo to deal with girls' football.
Throughout the years AUSTRALIA KF participated in the Mitrovica regional league, with the new generations U13, U15 and U17, where many successes were achieved and the discipline of our players was highly rated in Kosovo.
It is worth mentioning some of the successes achieved from the foundation (as for the new generations). The U15 age group won the regional cup of Mitrovica region; in a dramatic final, where the first half ended 3: 1 at a disadvantage, and in the second half the result was equalized at 3: 3 in the last minute; in extra time the result was closed 3: 3, and penalties were needed to determine the winner, where after entering the second goalkeeper goal we won the match where the goalkeeper received the first two penalties. Here is a link to watch the penalties from the dramatic FINAL, see here I mention only one match where they were selected Regional Cup winners. The successes are many, but given the purpose of this short summary; I mentioned only one.
Our club is also part of the second league of Kosovo with the senior category, this league is conducted with great efficiency and with great competition where the priority of the club is the ascension in the first league, the elite league of Kosovar football.
The club's general director and one of the club's main sponsors to date, is Jeton Ujkani, who has invested heavily in the club and his name in the club will be remembered long because he has given everything to the club.
Our club has travelled many times abroad for international tournaments; in Norway in 2014 we participated in the U17 generation, where we were privileged to represent our country. In Bulgaria in 2015 at a tournament in Bulgaria where many European clubs took part. In collaboration with the great English club Arsenal, we also hosted the Arsenal Elite Camp, as hosts of this camp we were exceptionally pleased to give the talent of our club to show their talents. Our club participated last year in Dana Cup 2018 in Denmark with two teams U15 and U17 we would like to show the rest of the World our fantastic football skills.

A sporting message from Agger
at the opening of the Dana Cup Hjørring.
Dana Cup Hjørring 2019 will be ”kicked off” by a sporting idol and the Mayor of Hjørring.
The former professional footballer from Liverpool FC - Daniel Agger, will come to Hjørring on Monday the 22nd of July and will form a bond between the football world and the huge event in Hjørring.
Daniel Agger will have a busy day before the official opening from the Nord Energi Arena. He will join the Liverpool FC Academy Training , sign autographs in the SPORTMASTER tent in the Park Vendia and take part in an interview with UEFA's former Press Manager, Frits Ahlstrøm.
With a sporting "opening message", the Dana Cup resumes a former tradition that was held over many years. Previously there was always a footballing idol present when the Mayor of the city did the official welcome to Hjørring,
The Mayor, Arne Boelt will of course be present again in 2019, so we will enjoy a Dana Cup Opening Ceremony built on tradition but on a brand new and modern Nord Energi Arena.

Our club Temp was founded in 1984 and is a little younger than the Dana Cup Hjørring. It was founded as a sports school called "Temp" and there were many different sports within the school; like gymnastics, boxing, field hockey and karate. But due to the various political and economic problems in our country, our sports schools started to close down. So since the autumn of 2018, we simply became the Temp Football Club. Our club plays in the Ukrainian U-19, U-17, and U-15 youth football championships.
We have been participating in the Dana Cup since 2014. During this time we have managed to expand the number of teams from Ukraine and in 2019, Ukraine will be represented by 15 teams from 8 different clubs:
1. CYSS Kalynivka 2008
2. DUSH Lokomotive Gayvoron 2008
3. CFC Bratslav Junior 2005
4. CFC Bratslav Junior 2007
5. CFC Bratslav Junior 2008
6. FC Balkany Hmelnik 2005
7. FC Kiev 2005
8. FC Kiev 2006
9. FC Kiev 2007
10. FC Kiev 2008
11. FC Temp Vinnytsia 2009
12. FC Temp Vinnytsia 2003
13. FC Temp Vinnytsia 2000
14. FC Blokhina and Belanova Vinnytsia 2007
15. RDUSH Rovesnik 2008
We want our teams to perform as well as possible in the tournament. Our children get a lot out of their trip to Denmark, playing games, developing and learning. The tournament is, for some of our players, a stepping stone to professional football, to the national team of Ukraine and the golden ball.
Unfortunately, Ukraine is a country in which hostilities take place. And our task is for more children to attend this football festival where more than 45 nations participate. Our players get the opportunity to understood that all people are the same, that sports are not political, that all disputes can be resolved by fair play on the football field and you remain as friends off the field. And to carry through this tournament, the understanding that the world is the main thing, that in every country there are children like themselves who strive to achieve things through hard work and respect for others. Thank you so much, Dana Cup, for giving this opportunity to our children.

Ottestad is found inland by the Lake Mjøsa in Norway. The club turned 100 years in 2018 and it includes football, floorball, handball, cross country skiing, cykling and volleyball. Football is the largest sector with 730 members and 50 teams.
We have heavily invested in the girls sector the latest years and are proud that Ottestad now has 17 girls teams in total and a new womens team playing in the 2. division. At the same time we also have players playing on the young national teams here in Norway. Our girls 14 are 25 players in total, playing in two teams, one team in the 1. divsion and the other team in the 2. division. We are very happy to keep these girls playing the game for so long.
It is our second time taking part in the Dana Cup Hjørring. The first time was in 2018 and we were very happy with the tournament. Otherwise our club has taken part for many years, it is a yearly tradition to travel to Hjørring. This year we will travel with 110-120 players on 7 teams in total. We are happy living together on our school, it strengthens our clubs solidarity.
For us from Ottestad Fotball, the Dana Cup Hjørring is an amateur tournament. At this moment we will travel with a G14 team and 23 players. We all agree that during the Dana Cup Hjørring, the social aspect is of the highest priority, so everyone will get the same amount of playing time on the field.
It is difficult for us to choose just one goal, since all of the goals are important but we have decided on two goals. The first goal is Gender Equality. In football alone, you can see that boys and girls have different opportunities. It is one thing in Norway but in other countries it is still unacceptable for girls to actually play football. Here in our club, we have placed a lot of focus on the girls game over the last few years, showing huge improvements and development. Our club has also been awarded prizes for our work within the girl’s/women’s game.
Another goal that is important for us, is to stop climate change. Many of our girl’s took part in the school strike on Friday the 22nd of March, inspired by Greta Thunberg. On that day there were organized strikes in many major cities in Norway with 40.000 young people taking part in the protests - Read more about the Global Goals here

Dana Cup on track with NT
Dana Cup participants will be able to enjoy a brand new experience this year. NT – Nordjyllands Trafikselskab and the Dana Cup have entered into a partnership, which will give participants with the Dana Cup armband the possibility to use NT's blue trains on the following routes: Hjørring-Hirtshals, Hjørring-Sindal, Hjørring Vrå and Sindal-Vrå.
- We are excited to get on track with this kind of public transport. This year it will be a good supplement to our own Dana Cup bus routes that move participants between the schools, the playing fields, the central Dana Cup area with our dining halls, event area and center courts. It will be even better when the tracks are "extended" and Hjørring will have a new station around the school accommodation area, just east of the train station. It will be located very close to the Dana Cup center area, says Dana Cup Director - Jette Andersen.
- Our partnership will focus on the Dana Cup participants but together with the Dana Cup we would like to create a greater focus and interest among the thousands of tourists visting each summer. This will happen via our App, which makes it very easy to travel on the trains, says Mette Henriksen - Customer and Sales Manager at NT.
When you can get around on the train, it is possible to get even more fun out of a week in Hjørring.
NT and the Dana Cup will get together and prepare some exciting proposals on how to use the trains. It is obvious with a visit to the North Sea Oceanarium in Hirtshals, a walk on the beach in Tornby, Vrå Art Museum and Hjørring's many offers will be even more interesting when you can use the train to get back and forth.
