Mercedes-Benz JuniorCup January 6 & 7, 2017

Rosenborg Trondheim

Welcome to Sindelfingen, for the first time, Rosenborg Trodenheim a Norwegian team joins the Mercedes-Benz Junior Cup at the Glaspalast.

Promoting young talents is not a philosophy in Norway but a logical development. Only the transfer fees can keep the cycle going, which Rosenborg secured twelve times by participating in the Champions League. Current example is Per Skjelbred, who has played for Hamburger SV from 2011 to 2013. Since then, he is under contract with Hertha BSC Berlin and has now more than 100 Bundesliga matches. Not only does Rosenborg represent the city, but also because of their partnerships with other associations, the entire region of Trondelag, which is one of the five regions of Norway. Even with the upcoming generation of players, Rosenbog sets the standards with their SalMar Academy in Norway. In the past eight years, there have been eight national championships for the U16 and U19, which are both the official ages in Norway. The U16 and U19 team have each four national championships.
