Accommodation Choices
Typical School Accommodation

Teams entering the tournament have a choice of various types of accommodation.

As with most Scandinavian tournaments most teams choose to stay in schools. Clubs are allocated a room per team in one of five local schools.

All participants must bring their own air bed and a sleeping bag. It is also possible to rent bedding (air beds, pillows and blankets) ask for more information.

If a school stay isn’t to your liking then Frederikshavn offers a wide selection of accommodation. You can stay centrally in town or choose to stay close to the beach or the forest- where it’s nice and quiet.

The selection is big in Frederikshavn, choose between various hotels or a hostel.

The tournament has negotiated good deals at many of them. Reduced rates are also available for team supporters as well.


The tournament offers full board (3 meals a day) starting Monday evening and ending with lunch Saturday
Cup No.1 is well known for its catering. With so many games being played during the week, the tournament food team is in place to ensure that healthy and varied meals are served throughout.

As in recent years, Janne Hanson and his team will oversee cooking at the 2020 cup.

In addition to the menus, a fresh fruit- and salad bar is available at every meal.

Pork will not be included in any menu.

They also serve and prepare special diets for persons with allergies. When you register, it is possible to mark if you have an allergy and to state which kind it is. If you have a need of a special diet, you are given a black bracelet marked with your name.
