Tipselit fills a central function for Swedish football in the ambition to educate young football players to become as good as possible and also to help the players to take the final step into the first team of their club and to become stars in Allsvenskan or in other leagues in Europe. Swedish Elite Football, Elite Football Ladies and the Swedish FA have in cooperation with the main sponsor Svenska Spel made four movies that shows everyday life with Tipselit for both coaches and players.
”It is not just the fact that Tipselit has created many star players throughout the years, a lot of head coaches also got their education through Tipselit”, says Janne Andersson, head coach for the Swedish national team.
The main task of Tipselit is to prepare young Swedish boys and girls to take the step from talent to elite. Already today, almost every national team player, regardless of category, is somehow educated within the Tipselit project. The same thing goes for Allsvenskan. Tipselit has also developed a large number of elite coaches, where many today are coaches in Allsvenskan or Superettan. On the boy and side of Tipselit, everything is ensured through an annual certification of each member club.
”Without Tipselit, we would have created fewer high class players, I am totally convinced of this”, says Janne Andersson.
”The certification helps to develop young players but above all ensure the quality of the business”, says Niclas Biverståhl, Sponsorship Manager at Svenska Spel.
On the girl side of Tipselit there is a Certification Model for players aged 9-19 in the clubs in OBOS Damallsvenskan and Elitettan. The project is aimed at player and leader development for these players. An additional major job is added in the Svenska Spel F19 series for players to get elite-winning matches from north to south.
”The Svenska Spel F19 series is an important match environment for prospective elite players. Together with the Certification Model, it creates important tools for daily operations”, says Victoria Sandell, Sports Manager at Elite Football Ladies.
