That is it — Issue #22

Happy New Years 🎉


It has been a strange year. The pandemic has affected us all in different ways. Now let us look forward to a brighter and better 2021!

Something we all look forward to is the vaccine. Because the vaccine is approaching you and me and hopefully we can soon return to what was previously considered normal. Playing sports, go to sporting events without worrying about anything and being able to hug and celebrate together as often as we want to.

Both students and employees have also been severely affected during the recent year. People have been forced into unemployment and lost their chances of getting a job immediately after graduation. At Sportidealisten, we have done what we can to simplify the path to new jobs in sports for thousands of people in 2020. We will continue the work to help even more sports clubs and job seekers, this year as well.

Now let us look ahead and hope for a really good year for everyone. Take care!

In this newsletter, we will share with you things like management, tech, two historic women, IOC and Table Tennis.
