The Hippos area of Jyväskylä is set to be transformed into a unique sports and wellness cluster situated right in the heart of Jyväskylä. Hippos 2020 will encompass sports research and education as well as leading-edge expertise in competitive sport together with excellent, modern facilities for both enthusiasts and top-flight athletes – indeed for everyone interested in sport, movement-centred wellness services, fresh experiences and novel events. Hippos 2020 will be born out of a passion and love for physical recreation in all its many dimensions.

Sport and well-being are not only in the blood of the city’s inhabitants; they also underpin academic expertise. Jyväskylä is home to Finland’s only university faculty of sport and health sciences, in addition to which KIHU (Research Institute for Olympic Sports) and Likes (Foundation for Promotion of Physical Activity and Public Health) are both based in the city. At the Hippos of the future this expertise in research and biometrics which has accumulated over many years will be made available to both professional athletes and ordinary fitness enthusiasts. Already today hundreds of successful sports clubs use Hippos for training purposes – from skaters to judoka, footballers to track and field athletes. And in the future their numbers are certain to increase!

Would you like to be part of this? We are seeking to involve investors, businesses and other players in the Hippos project. Please get in contact with us!
