“We had a constructive meeting and agreed to meet again,” said ski chief Eric Rosti, who did not comment further when he met with the media afterwards.
– It has not been decided when we will meet again (with the sponsors), he said further.
He did not want to go into or detail on Bråthen’s case, despite several questions from reporters who attended.
It’s a condition that is treated internally.
And Secretary-General Engfield Brittenburg didn’t want to say anything other than that it was a constructive meeting before she got past the press corps.
Concern after the Bråthen . riots
The meeting came after a large number of supporters recently announced that they would consider their cooperation with the association.
The meeting was attended by, among others, General Secretary Engfield Britten Berg, Ski Chairman Eric Rosti and Chairman of the Jump Committee Alf Torey Hogg.
They met with representatives of sponsors LO, Nammo, Eterni, Help and Lundin.
The background to the meeting is therefore the handling of the case against Clas Brede Bråthen. The current Jump Manager Bråthen agreement expires in April 2022, but The Norwegian Ski Association and the Jumping Committee will not extend the agreement.
It does not seem possible to find a solution to the conflict, and National team coach Alexander Stockel reacted forcefully to not allowing the sporting director to continue.
After the meeting, he was more positive.
– I think the meeting was positive. Now the next step is that there will be a meeting with Clas around the table, where he can find out his version, says Stöckl, who says he thinks sponsors want to use Clas Brede Bråthen.
Personally, I would like to appoint Klass Brady Brathin as sporting director, he confirms.
Talk to a number of NRK . sponsors He also criticized the skating federation’s handling of the issue That marked the news photo recently. Some also indicate that they will consider extending their agreements with the Norwegian Ski Association.
Our sponsorship agreement will be renegotiated in the spring, and the outcome of this case could have an impact on what we do next,” said Dag Are Børresen, Director of Communications at Help, one of the biggest sponsors of the national jump team.
Namo, who has been a patron for 11 years, is also concerned.
Morten Brandzig, CEO of Nammo, told NRK before the meeting that he hoped they would receive information during the meeting that could help them make a decision as sponsor.
After the meeting he said the following:
– We don’t have much to say now. We had a good meeting, and we will continue to work on this issue. For Nammo, we’ll continue to work with this, because we care about values, he says.
“I hope it’s a good meeting,” Ski President Eric Rosti said briefly before the parties headed to the meeting Monday morning.
