She envisioned a summer with her husband. It won’t be like this.

Stavanger Thursday 22 February at 16:27

The short version

  • Ada Hegerberg criticizes the schedule and is provoked by the fact that national team matches have been added to July, in a year in which Norway is not qualified for the championship.
  • She had envisioned a summer with more time for her husband Thomas Rogne.
  • Hegerberg hopes that those responsible stand up and take a foot on the ground to think logically about the decisions that are made.
  • On Friday, Norway plays the Nations League playoff against Croatia.

Sea view

– Don’t get me started on this, says Ada Hegerberg to VG.

She has just been asked if it is provocative that an EC qualification has been placed in the month of July. 10 to 16 July have been set up for qualifying matches.

She does so at the same time as preparations for the crucial Nations League matches against Croatia are well under way. The winner of the doubleheader stays at seeding level A. The matches are played on Friday and Tuesday.

She has also raised the topic in a post at The Guardian.

The Norway striker called the schedule frustrating to say the least, and says she had envisioned a summer with “freedom for body and soul”.

For the female players, the past three summers have been filled with the Olympics (Norway not included), EC and WC. In the summer, there are again the Olympics, but Norway is not qualified for the Summer Games in Paris.

– Some choices are starting to be made that go directly beyond the players, in my eyes. You see the consequences before they come, she says.

One of them is less time for her husband Thomas Rogne, who is a footballer in Swedish Helsingborgs.

– How do you get it to go up?

– We are completely “top notch” in logistics, we call ourselves self-appointed experts in it. He is the most important thing in my life, and we have been doing this for eight years. Football is our passion. So we try to maximize our careers, and solve it incredibly well. But it is challenging, says Hegerberg.

She continues:

– At the same time, I know that we have a whole life to share together after our careers. Right now it is of course tough to stand in, but I think we are fixing it very well, says Hegerberg.

The timetable for EC qualification

  • Draw of EC qualification groups: 5 March.
  • Match days 1 and 2: 3 to 9 April.
  • Match days 3 and 4: 29 May to 4 June.
  • Match days 5 and 6: 10 to 16 July
  • Playoff round 1 (doubleheader): 23 to 29 October
  • Playoff round 2 (doubleheader) 27 November to 3 December.
  • Draw of EC groups: 16 December
  • European Championships in Switzerland: 2 to 27 July 2025

Norway’s super striker believes it is an advantage that the man follows the spring-autumn season in Sweden, and that the French league runs from autumn to spring.

– It’s good to think that I can be with him in the summer, and that he is with me more in the winter, she says.

On the other hand, the schedule is creating a bit of a mess this year, in what had initially become routine for the football couple.

– There are not many weekends off – I got one now before the national team meeting, but we make the best of the opportunities we have, she says and laughs.

Before, the couple could manage to spend one day off with each other, but they no longer do that.

– It is clear that when we were a little younger we took the 24 hours when we could, but now we have a little more respect for our bodies. It is a burden that must be taken into account, says Hegerberg.

Did you get this one?

She believes it is important to respect that as a footballer you are also a completely ordinary person.

– I like to think that we are lucky to be able to do this, it is the best thing I could have done in my life. But the normal employment rights you have at another workplace do not apply as much in the world of football, she says.

Now she asks that others take the blade from her mouth.

– I hope that someone at a higher level can get a foot on the ground and start thinking a bit logically about the choices that are made. It’s not the players’ job to talk about it here. Someone has to start the dialogue and start the speeches, quite simply. Instead of the players, she says.

PS! On Friday, Norway plays the Nations League playoff against Croatia. The winner of the double meet stays at seeding level A. You can follow it VG Live.
