Bigger than ever: PLH once again gathers Denmark's architects for football and fun

Once a year, PLH Arkitekter invites Denmark’s architectural studios for a one-day football tournament in Emdrupparken, Copenhagen.

With 25 participating teams and hundreds of supporters in the stands, PLH Arkitekter hosted the architects' answer to the European Championships in June - the PLH Cup.

On a day dedicated to football and community, Sweco Architects lifted the prestigious trophy after a thrilling final against last year's winners H+. Pålsson Arkitekter took third place (and the award for best uniform), while PLH reached the quarterfinals.

"PLH Cup 2024 was a spectacular event, with record-breaking studio participation fueling passion, joy, support, and networking. Each year, excitement and competitiveness grow stronger. Thank you to all participants and sponsors—your support and gifts were greatly appreciated," says co-organizer Oliver Pearson.

It was the biggest edition of the cup so far in terms of teams, supporters and sponsors - all of which are listed below.
