An expanded investment to build the Swedish football of the future
Swedish Professional Football Leagues, together with Unibet, is involved in the development of the Swedish elite football of the future. The idea is to develop Swedish elite football and that Allsvenskan becomes one of the leading leagues in Europe.
Unicoach is a long-term collaboration between Unibet and Swedish Professional Football Leagues, where Swedish Professional Football Leagues has the project manager role. The focus is on training coaches and leaders so that they can work full time and create as good an environment as possible for young talent to develop in.
The overall goal of the collaboration is to create future elite players for our elite clubs. The original idea is to develop and secure Swedish elite football and to develop the football being played at the arenas in Allsvenskan and Superettan also in 2025.
From 2020, Unibet will invest a total of SEK 15 million per year in the work with Unicoach. The resources will be distributed to the 32 clubs in Allsvenskan and Superettan based on the certification process of Swedish Professional Football Leagues.
