It is with a heavy heart that we today must announce that Dronninglund Cup cannot take place this year. Given the prevailing conditions, however, the opposite is unrealistic. We had hoped for a long time, so it feels empty and sad to have to make the decision to cancel, says Simon Aagaard, leader of the Dronninglund Cup.
The management behind Dronninglund Cup has made an overall assessment of the situation – both the spread of Covid-19 and the limitations in society that the pandemic entails. With the information we have today, we do not expect that the situation can be guaranteed to have changed sufficiently until July when the tournament normally takes place. Therefore, Dronninglund Cup will be canceled and will not take place as planned 12 – 17 July 2021.
Of course, we had hoped that we would have been able to hold Dronninglund Cup this year – admittedly in a smaller format than usual. It would have been both our and our participants’ desire to complete the tournament, but health and safety are, of course, always our highest priority.
Dronninglund Cup is Denmark’s largest international handball tournament for youth teams. In 2019, we had over 220 teams spread over 3,000 active participants from 17 countries.
That is one of the reasons why Dronninglund Cup is a much-appreciated meeting place for young people from all over the world. The need for such meetings and experiences is important for young people, and we understand the disappointment that many feel now when the event is canceled.
Dronninglund Cup will be back next year, and we are really looking forward to inviting the WHOLE world to Dronninglund again!
We will send information to all registered teams with information about fees.
Registered teams can choose whether they want to transfer the fee to next year’s tournament or whether they want the fees refunded.
We look forward to meeting you at Dronninglund Cup 2022 from 11 to 16 July 2022!
With sporty greetings
