The power of sport is unique. It has great significance for human health, success and personal development, but it also transcends individuals and their sporting results. Sport has the power to bring people together across borders – both geographical and cultural. It contributes to economic growth and social progress. It inspires and gives hope.
In order for sport to develop there is a need for support and funds, both at the local and national level.
There are already three sports federations who are beneficiaries of the Swedish Postcode Lottery – the Swedish Olympic Committee, the Swedish Skiing Association and the Swedish Sailing Federation. Additional projects have also received funding in order to strengthen physical education and health in Sweden.
Now we’re taking this initiative one step further by establishing the Swedish Postcode Lottery’s Sports Foundation. The ambition is to make the world a better place by distributing money to sports related projects that contribute a positive social impact.
