Janine Van Wyk – Dana Cup Ambassador

The Dana Cup Hjørring is proud to present, South African - Janine Van Wyk as an official Dana Cup Ambassador.

The Dana Cup has made an agreement with Janine and her football academy, the JVW Girls Football Development in South Africa. 

JVW have participated in the Dana Cup in 2016, 2018 and 2019. This year, Janine came straight from the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, where she captained the South African Women’s team through their very first World Cup campaign, to coach JVW during the Dana Cup 2019. 

Janine enjoyed her first Dana Cup tournament immensely; she found the organization to be top class and the development of her players who participated was impressive. After taking part in the tournament and playing against teams from different corners of the World, they return home stronger and wiser and they spread their new football knowledge while playing in their own domestic league within South Africa.

Janine has just recently signed a contract to play for Fortuna Hjørring in the Danish League, so it was an obvious choice to take her on as an official ambassador for the Dana Cup in South Africa and worldwide. 

Janine has played for Houston Dash in the USA, the first South African player signed to that league. She holds the record as the most capped South African football player of any gender, currently 170 caps. The first Captain in South Africa’s history to lead a South African Team at the Women’s World Cup. 

With her extensive knowledge of football, coaching, travelling and taking part in tournaments, we feel Janine is a perfect match for the Dana Cup and we are honored to welcome her on board as an Official Dana Cup Ambassador.

The agreement will see JVW Girls Football Development team take part in the Dana Cup each summer, as a part of their current development program and we will welcome guest players to training and short stays at our Dana Cup Academy, Dana Cup SportsCenter and Fortuna Hjørring.

Camping and Glamping

Dana Cup is an International Youth Soccer Tournament with football and the actual games as the major attraction and center of focus for us and all of our visitors. More than 20.000 participants and 10.000 parents and supporters join forces for one week of unification around - The Beautiful Game of football! Boys and girls aged between 11 and 19 years of age, get the opportunity to test their skills and technical abilities against other players from far off corners of the World.

Football 24/7.

At the same time, Dana Cup is much more than just football. It is also a place for teams to unite and socialize on and off the playing field, along with other teams from all around the World, breaking down cultural barriers and borders in an amazing international atmosphere, forming friendships for the rest of their lives. It is a place where parents and supporters combine their travels to Denmark staying together with their team and or in other accommodations but still united for the same cause - The Beautiful Game.

Dana Cup has many different types of accommodation and upgrade options available during the week. The most popular choice has always been our normal school accommodation and hotel upgrades but in 2020 we believe that our Dana Cup Camping and Dana Cup Glamping in a TIPI will be a huge hit. Both the camping and glamping options are centrally located in the heart of the Dana Cup Center Area, so if you are looking for something centrally located and super social for just your team or your whole group including parents and supporters – then our new and improved camping and glamping options could be something for you and your club.

Check the videos from our two camping sites this summer, we have one version in Danish and one version in English but you will get the idea of how good these options are just by watching.

Interclubes (BRA) – Kragerø IF FB (NOR) 1-2 (1-1):

After nine seconds of play, number 79 from Interclubes set a new scoring record at Dana Cup 2019. Thus, the Brazilians made it 1-0. Still, 2 minutes and 31 seconds later, Kragerø equalised. After five minutes number 79 hit the post.

Then the level dropped. Nevertheless, the intensity was still intact, but most play took place in midfield with not very dangerous chances.

Right up until Kragerø’s captain felt that enough was enough and curled the ball into the top corner.
The goal forced Interclubes to attack but a well-playing goalkeeper and a heroic fight by the Norwegians prevented the Brazilians from equalising.
