What Fortuna has done here in the small town of Hjørring is create a place where women can thrive and young girls can strive. The club has a second team and a third team and youth teams and older women’s teams. At the meeting last week there were two awards given to women who have been a part of the club for 40 years… 40 years! They started playing as children and continue to be involved with administration today.
This club is an outstanding example of what professional leagues throughout the world can look like, if it’s done correctly. All it took was one man, Larsen, to say “hey, I don’t need all the money we make from the tournament, let’s do something with it.” That idea is somewhat lost in the US. I’m sure it has to do with culture and what Americans perceive to be the most important thing, but look at the opportunities this one man has provided for thousands of girls and women.
