Danish football ladies to get warm reception today

Come and cheer on the Euro runners-up today at City Hall Square

A day after falling just short in the 2017 European Championship final, the Danish women’s national team will be given a hero’s welcome home at City Hall Square.

The festivities, which will take place from 17:00-18:30, will include pancakes and an opportunity for fans to meet and celebrate with the medal winners.

The Danish ladies came close to matching the fairy-tale triumph their male countrymen conjured up 25 years ago this summer, knocking out a German side that had won the past six tournaments before ultimately going down 2-4 to the Dutch hosts in a riveting final.

Fans in Jutland also have an opportunity to welcome home the ladies. From 13:00-14:30, they will be celebrated at Viborg City Hall.
