“We are very excited about the NHF partnership. Not only does Norway field two world class national teams but the partnership also represents an integral cornerstone of our indoor strategy supporting brand and business expansion in both Norway and internationally. Norway is a key market for hummel and we are looking forward to a long and productive co-operation based on our shared values and vision,” said Allan Vad Nielsen, CEO for hummel A/S
