The World Championship is put on rails
In connection to the EURO 2016 qualification matches this week, the Danish women’s national team was present at the train station in Aarhus 6th October to celebrate the very unique world championship train.
The illustrations on the train is, of course, the eye-catching body paint layout and the transport company Arriva, which is behind the colorful trains, asked national team coach Klavs Bruun Jørgensen to dedicate the train with a champagne throw.
"The world championship train is a beautiful and festive element which will give a lot of focus on the championship in two months. The Arriva train is a perfect example of a unique activity which contributes to a great atmosphere ahead of the championship," says Klavs Bruun Jørgensen.
The event singer, Zindy, also performed at the celebration with the championship song, Heart of Handball, which made the event a great success. This was made possible by the national team sponsors, KPK and Arbejdernes Landbank.
At the men's European Championship in 2014 Arriva also made a special EURO train - and it became a success that they had to repeat at the coming women’s event.
"Handball is one of the leading sports in Denmark - not least in many of the cities in Jutland, where Arriva is also present - and therefore we are very pleased that once again we can help to create a lot of attention to one of the biggest events in handball. It will be a great pleasure to see the many happy, festive handball fans in both our buses and trains, and we look forward to giving them a good experience on the trip to and from the matches in Jyske Bank BOXEN," says Britta Indraccolo, Head of Marketing in Arriva Denmark .
