The long term cooperation between Swedish Handball Federation and Solidsport is aiming for the next level when Handboll Play, the new custom sport platform for Swedish handball, has been launched.
For four years, the Swedish Handball Federation (SHF) and Solidsport have had a close collaboration. Together with all handball districts and clubs around Sweden, we have made handball at all levels accessible in a way that never has been possible before – with the help of streaming.
Over the years, we have together activated over 1,600 team and club channels on Solidsport, which together has broadcasted over 37,000 games live – at all levels.
From grassroots all the way up to the second highest leagues Allsvenskan and the national elite club competition ATG Svenska Cupen.
Above that, this has also meant a significant income to the teams and clubs with over 1 000 000€ generated to handball teams, clubs and event organizers, made from the live broadcasts.
A succesful partnership that now will take the next steps on Handboll Play, a custom made streaming platform that aims to unite Swedish handball on its own digital arena, under its own brand and closely integrated with their competition data system.
We’ve achieved fantastic results when it comes to making handball available at all levels together with all our clubs, teams and organizers. With Solidsport's innovative platform and the right tools, we’ve made it possible to succeed. With Handball Play we’re now taking the next steps under our own brand and to create a new digital arena for Swedish handball on all levels.
– Robert Wedberg, Secretary General of the Swedish Handball Federation.
On Handboll Play, the handball audience will be met by a new design and a customized navigation to increase usability for both handball viewers and channel administrators. Through integration with the Swedish handball competition system, the long-term ambition is also to continue to automate sports data and expand the automation of live scores and statistics on all handball broadcasts.
This is a great milestone for our company. Even though we already have come very far in our partnership with the Swedish Handball Federation, we still see huge potential in growing together. We believe that this is the way forward, creating an exclusive and custom sport platform that will unite the Swedish handball community and make games at all levels available across the country.
– Johan Lundqvist, co-founder of Solidsport.
