ENABLE Sweden was founded in 2014 in Sweden following a tragedy at the Allsvenskan league season première between Helsingborgs IF and Djurgårdens IF, where a Djurgården supporter died after a violent incident. The project was initiated by Djurgården’s CSR Manager Filip Lundberg and Dr Clifford Stott, Keele University, UK. Soon after the duo became a trio with the involvement of Jonas Havelund, University of Souhthern Denmark, all working in a part-time capacity. This initiative was made possible thanks to financial support from Djurgårdens IF and the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Since 2015 ENABLE Sweden has been funded by Gålöstiftelsen.
In 2017 Dr Clifford Stott initiated ENABLE UK and other countries might follow.
More information about ENABLE UK will follow soon
