Kronborg Special Kids Cup with room for everyone

Kronborg Special Kids Cup is a new football event designed for children and young people with special needs and challenges.

Community is a keyword in the Kronborg Cup. With the new initiative Special Kids Cup, we want to promote inclusion, physical activity and social interaction for children and young people with special needs through football's many opportunities for community and togetherness.

Kronborg Special Kids Cup will be an adapted, supportive and fun football event that focuses not only on competition and results, but also on building and supporting social interaction and friendships.

The tournament is for 5-man teams, respectively U15-mix (years 2010-2012) and U12-mix (years 2013-2015) and will be held on the same weekend August 9-11, 2024, as the other tournament. The matches are played on the courts at Snekkersten Idrætscenter, and it is possible to stay overnight at the local school in Snekkersten.

The initiative is supported by the Elsass Foundation and the Fog Foundation, so it is possible to get a reduced price and financial support for transportation and accommodation.

Kronborg Cup offers special discounts on accommodation at cost price and payment of transportation (bridge and ferry fees).

"With this event, we want to set a new standard for football tournaments with a more inclusive event environment where bridges are built between children with special needs and their peers in a common activity," says Frank S. Jensen, steering committee member and active in the development of Special Olympics offers for children and adults in Snekkersten IF.

In the Kronborg Cup, a key value is that everyone should have the opportunity to be part of a community and have fun. This is the most important thing for children's sports participation rather than results.

"The Kronborg Cup will deliver memorable experiences for children and young people with special needs and their families, where there will be opportunities to meet like-minded people across clubs and regions," concludes Frank S. Jensen.
