      Champions Battle 2018 ended in Telia Parken monday night 30th of April at 11pm - however the memories live on forever. It was a very unique event where 12,500 spectators, the highest number of spectators for at tennis match ever in Denmark, celebrated two Grand Slam champions and touched both Caroline Wozniacki and Venus Williams. 

      Venus Williams said after the match:

       

      "The Danish spectators are classy. I really enjoyed the evening, and all the fans and partners I met in the different VIP lounges and on centre court - they were all so nice to me."

      - Venus Williams, Player

       

      As a surprise the organisers f.reklame had arranged an award ceremony for Caroline's achievements through out her career and not at least for at first ever Grand Slam title. Venus Williams was called on to centre court first and then Caroline Wozniacki. Caroline was met by a roar and standing ovations from the spectators who showed their respect and thanked her for the Grand Slam experience in Australian Open earlier in the year.

      When Caroline entered centre court some of Denmark's greatest personalities were waiting for her to hand over a bouquet one after another. Tine Sheuer, former Danish tennis player; Michael Mortensen, former coach for Caroline; Nicklas Bendtner, Danish football star and good friend of Caroline, and last the 93 years old Danish composer and pianist, Bent Fabricius-Bjerre. Caroline was overwhelmed and after the match she thanked the fans, sponsors and opponent Venus Williams:

       

      "It was a special night for me. That so many tennis fans from around the country came to watch us paly warmed both of our hearts. Thank you ever so much for your continuous support, the warm welcome and to Venus for flying all the way to Copenhagen 16 years after she was here the last time. Thank you everyone, this means a lot to me."

      - Caroline Wozniacki, Player

       

      Champions Battle 2018 offered seeworthy and fast-paced tennis where the two players had room for playing and played some spectacular duels, which got the crowd up from their chairs. 

       

       

      Champions Battle & The Organiser

      f.reklame was proud to once again arrange tennis in Telia Parken, not least because it was exactly Caroline Wozniaki playing Venus Williams in the arena where the two tennis darlings' history together started, CEO, Mads H. Frederiksen, said:

       

      "I'm very happy that we managed, 16 years later, to arrange tennis in Parken again, and then with these two players. It's a legendary story to have Caroline and Venus back where they met each other for the first time. We had a fantastic cooperation with Parken Sport & Entertainment, sponsors and volunteers and we owe them an enourmous thank you - as without them this wouldn't have been such a great success"

      - Mads H. Frederiksen, CEO,  f.reklame

       

      In Telia Parken in 2002 a 12 year old Caroline Wozniacki met her big idol and back then the worlds no. 1, Venus Williams, for the first time.  On the 30th of April 2018 the world-class tennis stars, friends and competitors met at Champions Battle 2018.

      The world's no. 2, Caroline Wozniacki, met the world's no. 5, the American tennis legend and opponent from the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore 2017, Venus Williams, in fantastic settings in Telia Parken in Copenhagen. 

      The two tennis ladies have played many close and seeworthy matches; with Wozniacki's win at the season final and Venus Williams leading head-to-head this was a great revenge in all perspectives. This was the first time they faced each other in an exhibition match in Denmark and it was an experience beyond the usual.

      In 2002 Venus Williams asked Caroline Wozniacki what she would like to be when she grew up, and Caroline answered firmly "I want to be the world's no. 1 like you are", and that she became.

      EURO '92 - 25th Anniversary (2017)

      Back Where It All Ended in '92 - 25 Years Anniversary

      On the 26th of June 2017 it was exactly 25 years ago the Danish national team sensationally won the European Football Championships. This was celebrated as they remembered it from 1992 with an official celebration at Copenhagen City Hall. 

      25 years ago, on the 26th of June 1992, the Danish football national team won the European Football Championships i Sweden. What was supposed to be holiday time for the Danish players became a ticket to the European Championships in Sweden and a sensational victory when beating Germany 2 - 0 in the final at Nya Ullevi Stadium in Göteborg. 

      After the victory in 1992 the association EMMA 1992 was founded by players and managers around the '92 team. The association EMMA has every year since organised a party for the people involved. 2017 was a special year, 25 years anniversay, which was celebrated at Copenhagen City Hall where Lord Mayor, Frank Jensen, and Mayor of Culture and Leisure, Carl Christian Ebbesen invited them all for brunch and celebrations. 

      At 12 noon the football legends stepped out on the balcony with the Euro '92 trophhy and thanked for the enourmous support they have experienced during the last 25 years. The captain of the '92 team, Lars Olsen, said prior to the event:

       

      ”We are all very excited to gather at Copenhagen City Hall to celebrate our 25 years anniversary and the many memories of an amazing time. During the years we have received fantastic support and that we would like to thank the people for when we on the 26th of June at 12 noon step out on the balcony again. We hope that as many as possible would like to come and celebrate it with us at Copenhagen City Hall." 

      - Lars Olsen, '92 legend

       

      Lord Mayor Frank Jensen (S) welcomed the players to the Ceremonial Hall at Copenhagen City Hall and wished them congratulation on the anniversary, he said:

       

      ”The victory at the European Championships in 1992 is one of the biggest Danish sports performances ever, and it still fills children and adults with pride and community spirit. The City Hall Square was in 1992 center for a folk festival after the Euro victory, and therefore I'm extremely happy that the city Hall once again frames the celebrations of the football heros and their 25 years anniversary." 

      - Frank Jensen, Lord Mayor

       

      Mayor of Culture and Leisure Carl Christian Ebbesen (DF) was also looking forward to celebrating the players from '92 and their anniversary:

       

      ”I'm excited here 25 years after the victory in Gothenburg to be part of celebrating the heros from '92 at Copenhagen City Hall. When I see the talent pool among the young players on the current national team I look forward to welcoming a team of new European champions after the EURO2020, where four of the matches will be played here in Copenahgen." 

      - Carl Christian Ebbesen, Mayor of Culture & Leisure

      Sir Alex Ferguson at the Opera in Copenhagen (2010)

      'History of Legends'

      In cooperation with Aon, f.reklame organised the unique event ’History of Legends’ on the 12th of August 2010. The audience had the opportunity to experience three very unique personalities – Sir Alex Ferguson, Peter Schmeichel and Frank Arnesen – each of them telling their fascinating life stories and about their extraordinary careers at the Opera in Copenhagen.

      These three legends have already had amazing careers within the world of football, and they delightfully shared with the audience these accomplishments and their motivation for their winning mentality. This turned out to be a very magical evening where everyone gained a very rare insight into how Sir Alex Ferguson managed to stay on top of one of the biggest football clubs in the world, for what seems as a lifetime.

      First on stage was Frank Arnesen who since 2005 has been the Sports Director at Chelsea FC. In the company of TV2 Sportens Ulla Essendrop he told very candidly about his way to the top management in one of the biggest football clubs. In addition, Arnesen described how he has coped with the great amount of pressure that comes with this sort of job. At the end Frank Arnesen gave his personal take on his own and Chelsea FC’s future.

      Hereafter, Peter Schmeichel took on the stage at the breathtaking Opera. Schmeichel shared openly his experience from his career in professional football. The audience gained a perspective in what happens sometime behind the scenes when the spotlights are switched off at the football stadiums. He gave everyone present a close look at his career, and did not hesitate to point towards Frank Arnesen as the new national coach. Later he described his great relationship to Brondby’s Director Per Bjerregaard.

      Finally, Manchester United’s boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, entered the stage with great presence. After 24 years as manager for the world’s most prominent football club he had lots of interesting stories and anecdotes to share with the audience. In particular he emphasized on how he first started as a manager under less exclusive circumstances for the Scottish Aberdeen. Furthermore, he focused on the importance of working as a team. He also believed that the root of his success came from his experience in handling players with strong personalities and adjusting them in the right direction.

      The three legends were gathered under elegant surroundings at the beautiful Opera with gorgeous and very competent Ulla Essendrop from TV2 Sporten as hostess for the evening.

      The event’s title sponsor Aon Denmark and CEO, Soren Lindbo, expressed that they were very proud of sponsoring this unique event. Aon, the world's largest insurance and pension broker, was on 1st of June 2010 new shirt sponsor for Manchester United.
