Svenska Spel, the Swedish gambling operator, has donated just over SEK 4.3 million to Swedish youth sports in 2019.
The prize pallet is an initiative where Svenska Spel contributes SEK 10,000 for each international pallet place that Swedish athletes have taken during the year.
2019 was a very successful year for Swedish sports and the number of medals became more than ever, which also means that Svenska Spel distributes more money than ever to Swedish youth sports, a total of SEK 4,320,000.
“Swedish sport stands very strong internationally and 432 medals, i.e. just over one medal per day, are incredibly impressive. We at Svenska Spel are, as Sweden’s largest sports sponsor, very proud and happy to be able to distribute this money that will help strengthen youth sports around the country,” Patrik Hofbauer, CEO of Svenska Spel, said.
“Because it is through a broad youth sport and a good talent development that we lay the foundation for future international success,” Patrik Hofbauer added.
