«It is going to be crazy to play in front of a Danish crowd. And already knowing now, we are going to face North as well in front of 10.000 fans, only makes it even bigger.
You definitely have to experience it before you truly understand it. It’s awesome to play in a packed arena and doing it on home turf with 10,000 people in the audience makes it even more awesome.
Many people have never experienced a live tournament, but all I can say for you is: Look forward to this! It is going to be huge.»
