Florpad™ signs deal with Swedish ice hockey team Leksands IF

Pressmeddelande   •   Okt 23, 2018 12:45 CEST

Florpad™ will soon produce floorpads branded with the Leksands IF logo after signing an agreement with the Swedish ice hockey team.

Since its foundation almost 100 years ago, Leksands IF has become one of the most recognizable names in Swedish sport. Despite coming from an eponymous village of just 6,000, the team has gone on to win four Swedish championships. Its home ground, Tegera Arena, can swallow the whole population of Leksand, and then some.

Although it may come from a tiny village and currently plays in Hockeyallsvenskan, Leksands IF still had the sixth best attendance in Swedish ice hockey last season, only beaten by five teams in SHL.

Florpad™ uses innovative technology and high-tech materials to create an octagon-shaped floor pad which stylishly protects floors from spills and scratches from gaming and office chairs.

Lars Andersson of Leksands IF said: “We look forward to starting this collaboration with Irootfor. We’ve noticed that young people appreciate both ice hockey and esport, so we feel this is a step in the right direction for Leksand. It is, of course, also a bonus that Florpad™ fits nicely into our range.”

Irootfor CEO Robert Hjelmer said: “When starting in esport I was the first to produce and launch merchandising for different teams around the world. At the time I drew inspiration from traditional sports.

“This agreement with Leksands IF is a big step for us, but also for the whole Swedish esport scene. As big clubs around the world - in the NBA, NFL and NHL - are entering the scene, the range of merchandising must expand. That traditional sports are now coming to us for inspiration shows how strong Irootfor’s products are.”
