“My aim is to inspire young people in the joys and benefits of sports.”

Erling and Arctic are currently working together to support kids in benefitting from the joys of playing sports and developing stronger local communities. The goal for Erling is to give back to local football clubs and communities, creating growth and opportunities for kids to thrive regardless of their background.

This means the world to him, as he himself has experienced the benefits of having proper training facilities available and the positive environment it creates:

Erling practically grew up in “Jærhallen”, an indoor football arena in his hometown of Bryne. He used to run down there and play every day. The arena was a safe place to hang around in a healthy environment with friends and with lots of good people involved in and around the club.

In Erling’s own words: "Together with Arctic and my other partners, my aim is to support children and young people in experiencing the joys and benefits of sports and create even stronger local communities. In the same way that I was lucky enough to experience myself growing up in Bryne".

With Erling on the Arctic team, anything is possible!
