Quote from the CEO

“Our biggest victory during the quarter was how we activated our brand in the ‘Dear Rival’ campaign. We reached over 3.5 million consumers in Sweden and the Netherlands and raised their awareness of Björn Borg as a sports fashion brand by over 100 percent. Also, I am proud to have received an award during the quarter as the year’s most health-conscious manager, which of course was a team effort. I have seen how individuals can make a difference, and that healthy individuals make an even bigger difference,” noted CEO Henrik Bunge.

At the heart of our heritage.
The Puente Romano Tennis Club in Marbella boasts a rich history and a longstanding association with tennis legends. A pivotal figure in the club’s early years was the legendary tennis icon Björn Borg.
Borg’s ties with the Puente Romano Tennis Club strengthened significantly in 1980 when the club served as the venue for his wedding.
Although Björn Borg’s direct involvement in managing the Puente Romano Tennis Club eventually concluded, his enduring legacy laid the groundwork for the club’s esteemed status in the tennis realm.

Our entire SS24 Racquet Club Collection is shoot here, at Puente Romano Tennis Club.
