The number of available wristbands differ from day to day and it’s first come, first serve. A wristband package consists of a wristband and two drink coupons for EuroClub and costs 100 DKK (the price of the two drinks – the wristband itself is free). Follow EuroClub’s Facebook page for real time information about availibility: www.facebook.com/euroclub2014.
