Sponsorship

We are proud to have been the main sponsor of the Norwegian women's national handball team for more than 20 years, through good times and bad. In 2013, we also signed an agreement with the Football Association of Norway, which makes us one of three partners of the Norwegian men's national football team. The agreements with Norway's two most popular teams are a source of pride in Gjensidige and inspire us to work as a team and perform well in relation to our customers.

The Norwegian Handball Federation

Handball is Norway's second biggest team sport after football. The Norwegian Handball Federation has 115,000 members and 715 member clubs.

Gjensidige is the Norwegian Handball Federation's sponsor and the main sponsor of the Norwegian women's national handball team. The team is very popular among Norwegians, and we are proud to be associated with it. Part of the fee paid under the agreement is earmarked for the Norwegian Handball Federation's injury prevention work.

The Football Association of Norway

The Football Association of Norway is Norway's biggest sports federations, with 365,000 members and around 2,000 member clubs.

Gjensidige is a proud sponsor of the Football Association of Norway and is one of the Norwegian men's national football team's three partners. We are also the main sponsor of the Godt Forberedt ('Well prepared') concept, a collaboration between Gjensidige, the Football Association of Norway and Idrettens Helsesenter (sports health centre). We are proud to cooperate with one of Norway's biggest participants in the public arena.

Sports kits from Gjensidige

The agreements with the Norwegian Handball Federation and the Football Association of Norway mean that we sponsor the best teams, but also our young promising athletes. That is why we hand out 3,000 sports kits every year to handball and football teams for children and young people all over the country.

Application criteria:

  • Children and youth groups in all handball and football clubs in Norway can apply.
  • Advertisement from competing financial services companies on uniforms, including tracksuits, is not accepted.
  • We use Umbro as our equipment supplier. The club must therefore clarify whether it is bound by agreements with competing suppliers.

  • The application deadline for 2014 has expired, but you will have an opportunity to apply next year.
