We are going to #DanaCup2019
Etne IL was founded on the 15th of April, 1930 and offers sports for both children and adults. Etne IL has different sporting offers to choose between: football, athletics, handball, gymnastics and cross country skiing. At this time the club has 540 active members with 300 of them registered under football. There is more than 80 coaches, team leaders and contact persons actively working within the club and the different sports and all are working as volunteers.
Within our football department we have 22 teams, with the youngest players being 6 to 7 years of age when they start playing football. Our club has one artificial field and two fields with natural grass that are used for both training and games. Our club also has a large indoors hall, which is good to use when the temparture sinks below zero in the winter time. Once a year in the month of June, we organize a small football tournament over a weekend with 2000 players aged between 9 and 13 years of age. Etne Cup was organized for the first time in 1980. A popular little tournament that gets fully booked and their is a waiting list.
Our youth teams between 13 and 19 years of age, have participated in football tournaments in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Our club has participated with many teams over many years at the Dana Cup Hjørring. Last time we participated was in 2014 with a Boys 15 team. Here in 2019 we will participate with both a girls G14 and boys B14 team. This is the first time that these teams will play in a tournament abroad. We will live together both players and parents, so it will be a social event for both young and old. The reason we have chosen the Dana Cup is because we always receive a warm welcome with good following up and assistance along the way. It is a football tournament that is extremely user friendly to attend and everything is centrally located in Hjørring. The Dana Cup area with the event area, tivoli and disco is very popular with the players when they are not playing games.
Our expectations are first of all to have a load of fun, both on and off the field and to support the mastering and team spirit of all our players. It will also be fantastic if we can achieve good results too. We hope that our players will form new friendships with other players from other clubs. We also hope to be good representatives for our club during the tournament. It will be a brand new experience for our players to play in such a large tournament and we expect this to be an experience they will never forget. We look forward to next years big event – the Dana Cup Hjørring 2019.
