While the European Championship takes a break, you can still get your dose of football. Come to our summer terrace where our «Open Air Football Cinema» takes you back to the 1992 European Championships, where Denmark as a last-minute participant go on to win the tournament.
"We are red, we are white, we are Danish Dynamite" - Denmark had a fairytale summer in 1992.
Their victory in the 1992 European Championships ranks as one of the great football surprises in the history of the game. This amusing comedy follows the true story of how Richard Nielsen, the Danish football manager, united his unprepared, mismatched team of national superstars and nobodies to win against the reigning world champions, Germany.
Initially not even qualified for the tournament the Danes' participation becomes known only ten days before, as Yugoslavia is excluded from the tournament following the outbreak of the civil war. The scanty preparation of the seemingly chance-less Danes appears more like a youth recreation camp than a professional training camp, as the stars such as Peter Schmeichel, Henrik Larsen or the Laudrup brothers have other things on their minds than football. Nevertheless, coach Richard Møller Nielsen leads the motley bunch to the final.
