In 2007, Daniel Burns started this one-day soccer tournament, when he was the Pastry Chef at NoMA in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is the tournament's 4th consecutive year involving Copenhagen’s restaurants’ chefs and staff.
Only 16 teams participate, and each one is donating a dinner for two to be raffled off. Also to be raffled is a Wine tasting for 10 courtesy of KroneVin. 100% of raffle proceeds benefit Action Against Hunger | ACF-International’s worldwide work, as well as proceeds from food sold during the tournament. You do not have to be present to win a dinner for two.
