Middelfart VK and Holte IF triumph in Danish Cup Finals
News from the National Federations

Copenhagen, Denmark, March 2, 2021. This past weekend, Danish Volleyball found the names of their national cup winners after two well-played finals. In the men’s competition, the underdogs Middelfart VK took everyone by surprise and power-played their way to the club’s first national cup title in 40 years against the reigning champions Gentofte Volley. In the women’s final, Holte IF retained their title against the rivals from Brøndby VK.

Men’s Final

Middelfart VK vs Gentofte Volley 3-0 (25-18, 25-20, 26-24)

Even though the men’s final lacked live audience and the surrounding atmosphere, the actual match featured many interesting duels and it eventually resulted in a major surprise. Middelfart VK found their very best level at the very best time, creating quite a sensation as they stormed to a 3-0 win over the reigning champions and bookmakers’ favourites. The last time Middelfart VK could lift the trophy was in 1980, i.e. 18 years before their current captain, Nikolaj Hjorth, was born!

“This is a huge deal for us. We believed the whole way through that we could make this happen. However, to win like this with such a big margin was not something anyone of us had dared to dream about,” Hjorth says.
