Videxio has signed a sponsorship agreement with the Norwegian kicker Håvard Rugland, who could be on the verge of signing an NFL contract.

The 28-year-old caught the attention of professional teams in the United States after he posted a video on YouTube showing the amateur player performing spectacular kicks and trick shots. The clip has been viewed almost 2.5 million times.  

At the moment Håvard is in contact with several teams in the NFL, and he has been invited back to a second trial for the New York Jets after an initial try-out last year. His goal is an NFL contract.

"Håvard's story and ambitions resonate well with our values and Videxio would like to contribute to his success", says Tom-Erik Lia, CEO of Videxio.

The sponsorship allows Håvard to train with kicking coach and former NFL kicker Michael Husted in San Diego, California, in order to be as well prepared as possible for more try-outs with NFL teams.

"He reminds us a bit of ourselves. At the moment we are a small company, but we have huge ambitions, and like him, we have received a lot of attention. Last, but not least: For us, as for Håvard, 2013 marks the year when we will go to the US!”, concludes Tom-Erik Lia.
