With over 20,000 players, officials and referees, the Dana Cup is the most international youth soccer tournament in the world and is also Denmark’s largest sporting event.
Over 1,000 youth teams from over 100 countries will participate in the tournament which has been held in the North Jutland town of Hjørring since 1982.
The 33rd edition of the tournament has attracted a record 1,089 registered teams playing in an astonishing 2,755 games and culminating in the A and B finals.
Over 200 referees from all over the world are also officiating. Regardless of level, each team in the Dana Cup is certain of playing a minimum of four games and they have the opportunity to test themselves in international competition at the very highest level.
There will be eight categories for boys (Under 11 to Under 19) and seven categories for girls (Under 12 to Under 19).
Stars like Zé Roberto from the Brazilian national team or Denmark’s Brian Laudrup and Peter Schmeichel participated in the Dana Cup before their names became known all around the world.
