A trip, which changes everything:
It all starts with a seminar trip in Autumn 2014. Frederik is looking forward to his trip to Münster but also he regrets that he can’t join the regular training of his football club. To keep himself fit during the trip he plans to do some running, but he finds it hard to motivate himself in the evening for a lonely run and also it is difficult to find out where to run. At that moment he has a brilliant idea. Why should he run alone, when it makes much more fun with others? The idea for NOW Sport was born.

Back home from his trip Frederik shares the idea with his friend Michael who is also an active sports guy who plays Basketball in a regional league team and is also trainer of junior teams. Both believe that there must be many people wishing to do sports while they are travelling, they just need to get the relevant information about their sports and like-minded people, no matter where they actually are. Based on their own experience, both want to bring together sports and sportspeople. Their slogan: “It shall be easy to do sports with like-minded people everywhere at any time.” To realize the development of NOW Sport they engaged their fathers which are friends – that is how old friends became a two-generation founders team.
