IF Elfsborg hosted family day at Boras Zoo
Our Swedish IF Elfsborg hosted its annual Elfsborg Day in Borås Zoo. Despite the bad weather, 4,000 visitors showed up to visit the exotic animals and meet Elfsborg’s players.
There were a lot of families who came along with their kids who, in addition to a full day in Borås Zoo, could test on penalty kicks, get a face painting and of course meet all the Elfsborg players. “A super successful day, as usual”, concluded Johan Sjöberg, who is the person responsible for the event.
