With the friendly against the US just days away, the Danish national football association DBU finally agreed to a new pay deal with the players after weeks of heated negotiations. The new collective agreement will be more performance-based and give DBU the saving of 17 percent it wanted. Denmark went on to beat the US 3-2 thanks to a Nicklas Bendter hat-trick.

Handballers ousted
The last two surviving Danish teams have been knocked out of this year’s handball Champions League as KIF Kolding København and Aalborg both lost their last 16 fixtures this week. Aalborg lost capitulated to Barcelona over two legs 33-60, while KIF went down fighting 40-43 on aggregate to Croatian outfit HC Prvo Plinarsko Drustvo Zagreb. 

Museum making move
The popular Post & Tele Museum has revealed it will move from its inner-city address to a new and improved location at Øster Allé 1 in the Østerbro district. Popular among families with children, the museum’s new location near Fælledparken is considered ideal.

Wolves closing in
FC Midtjylland are closing in on their first ever Superliga title after FC Copenhagen dropped two points at home against Randers over the weekend. The Lions could only manage a 1-1 against the Blue Horses which leaves the Wolves with an 11-point lead with 11 games to go.
