SÍ Sørvágur and ÍF Fuglafjørður emerge victorious from dramatic Faroese Cup finals
News from the National Federations

Torshavn, Faroe Islands, February 27, 2021. On Saturday, both Faroese Cup finals went down to the wire as SÍ Sørvágur’s women won their third cup title in a row while the men from Mjølnir Klaksvík lost their crown to ÍF Fuglafjørður.

Women’s final


Dráttur vs. SÍ Sørvágur 2-3 (8-25, 25-22, 25-22, 15-25, 12-15)

SÍ Sørvágur captured their third cup title in a row and for the third time they had to do it in five sets as they got stiff opposition from underdogs Dráttur. However, nothing suggested such drama as SÍ won the first set by 25-8! Dráttur turned it around and won the next two sets 25-22 before SÍ took the fourth to set up the tiebreaker. Dráttur looked down and out as they were trailing 2-8 and 4-11, but an incredible fight back saw them level the score at 12-12. But it was all in vain, though, as SÍ won the next three points to seal the victory and retain the cup title.

“It was a very hard match. It is always hard to play against Dráttur. They always fight very well. So, it was very, very hard but very, very enjoyable,” SÍ captain Inga Helena Henriksen said.


Men’s final

ÍF Fuglafjørður vs. Mjølnir Klaksvík 3-2 (21-25, 25-21, 25-20, 19-25, 15-12)

Mjølnir Klaksvík were on quest for a third consecutive cup title – a feat no men’s team had managed before and they were on song from the start, taking the first set 25-21. The second set went neck and neck to 20-all when ÍF Fuglafjørður opened up a 3-point gap before winning 25-21. The third set was identical to the second: at 20-all, ÍF made the break to clinch the set by 25-20. Mjølnir took an early lead in the fourth set and managed to stay in front, winning it 25-19 to force a tiebreaker. After 5-all in the decider, ÍF went on to lead 10-7, and with five match points at 14-9, ÍF were not going to throw away the opportunity to win their ninth cup title since 2000, and finally wrapped up the tiebreaker by winning 15-12.

“It was an incredibly enjoyable match to play. The last three weeks I have not had any other match in my thoughts, although that can be risky when you play other teams. This is the only thing I have thought about for three weeks,” ÍF player Arthur Djurhuus Poulsen said and added: “I have also played abroad, but I have never had spectators like these. It’s really surreal,” said the overjoyed cup winner.
