We are going to #DanaCup2019
Common experiences through football
Our club, B36 has a long tradition of sending our youth teams outside of our countries borders to take part in tournaments. The first teams were sent abroard in the start of the 80’s.
We have participated in different tournaments in Denmark and in 1988 we took part in the Dana Cup Hjørring for the very first time. Since 2013 we have participated every year with many teams and again here in 2019 we are registered with 3 youth teams.
There are many reasons why we have become yearly visitors to the Dana Cup.
Geografically the tournament is situated perfect for us with ferry connections between the Faroe Islands and Hirtshals in Denmark. We have also found the organization of the tournament to be very satifactory and when the frame work is perfect, it is easy and convenient to return again and again.
The most important thing for us, however, is that the Dana Cup with its size and diversity guarantees a great experience – sportswise and socially. Players can test themselves against teams of different levels and meeting different nationalities matures our players as human beings.
Participation in the Dana Cup tournament also has a huge affect socially for the club. With a positive affect for each individual team, along with forming friendships between the boys and girls teams and the parents. The club itself is not organizing the trip, it is 100% left to the group of parents in charge of the under 12 players.
The parents and the children, co-operate together with the various initiatives to finance their participation, making it a huge joint project for everyone involved.
Although during the tournament it is important that the parents and the children do not stay together. The players are the true participants and the parents are the supporters.
