With the signed agreement in future we are together seeking solutions to create a healthier society by improving the physical condition and by delivering interesting, stimulating and challenging facilities and equipment.

- Movement and exercise is successful and inspires the best in high quality conditions. A good facility allows children, young people and adults to move and top athletes grow in just the right conditions. It's great to be able to move things together with a major player like Unisport, says Mikko Salonen, Managing Director of the the Finnish Olympic Committee.

- We believe that by creating more attractive sports facilities with our partners and clients, we can increase well-being in our society, says Pekka Elo, Unisport, Country Manager Finland.

- The Olympic Committee`s goal is to increase the movement of the whole people and to strengthen the social status of sport culture. Our values and goals are similar which is an excellent starting point for a long-term cooperation, Elo sums up.
