In loving memory of Mickel Lauritsen

It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to a valued member of the ESSMA community, long-time ESSMA board member and ablove all good friend to many as we received the news of the unfortunate and sudden passing of Mr. Mickel Lauritsen (Brøndby IF).

Mickel was not just a colleague for everyone at Brøndby and in the stadium industry; he was a source of inspiration through his dedication and professional approach. His knowledge, insight and understanding in security was exceptional.

Mickel helped set the standard for the industry, and he did so through a fantastic ability for collaboration and dialogue, and always with a smile on his face, even in stressful situations. With dialogue, Mickel sought answers and solutions, which made Mickel deeply respected among colleagues, business partners and not least also in the active fan environment around Brøndby IF. Regardless of the challenges and opportunities Mickel faced, his strong personality shone through. Always listening. Always solution-oriented. Always full of energy and with a positive belief and approach to the world around him. His contribution to the club extended beyond the professional as he not only shared his expertise but also his help and support. Mickel was always ready to lend a helping hand or a word of encouragement and he will be deeply missed.

For Mickel, family was his focal point and the absolute most important thing in his life. Mickel’s family was his great pride and joy. Mickel created a fantastic family and a home filled with great love. During this difficult time, all our thoughts and care go out to Mickel's family.

In Mickel’s honour a minute of silence will be held during Brøndby’s next home game against Hvidore IF on Sunday 3 December. In addition, the players will wear mourning bandages for the two upcoming games against Lyngby BK and Hvidovre IF.

Mickel's memory be honored and he will be deeply missed.
