Stabæk Fotball is a club based in Bærum, near Oslo. Founded in 1912, it plays in Eliteserien, the Norwegian first division.
Stabæk is a club that takes social responsibility towards all ages. In recent years, they have strengthened their effort even further. After all, like most, they think that society is more than 90 minutes of football every weekend. The club works within the local area and tries to address its problems with humanity.
Its motto is “Always. No matter what.”
Through the combined use of football and curricular activities, Stabæk wants to promote education and social cohesion. Some example of the projects that it Staebek FC carries on are:
One very important project carried out by Stabæk is their Street Football programme, which occurs two days a week, the whole year-round. It includes tournaments, leagues, and matches. All involved eat together, travel together and learn how to be a part of something larger than themselves. By being in this project over time, participants get the opportunity to work in the club on a matchday as volunteers and be in a position for work within the clubs’ partner companies or in other companies in the area, through their municipality collaboration. Whether participants carry out a short or long period of job training within the club, Stabæk’s ultimate goal is to move players from the Street Football programme, after being addicts back into work, through taking part in this programme.
Another project is Match with VIVIL, an annual event targeted to people with disabilities.
The club works with the child welfare department of the municipality so that children can have free tickets and it also organizes one match a year, both for women and men, to celebrate the national Pride day in Norway.
