A Norwegian football club just got a big boost to their bank account thanks to a local fan.
Erling Andreassen, who passed away at the age of 91 in July, left nearly all his estate to his local club in Vang, Norway: FL Fart.
(Okay, yes, funny name, have a laugh — can we move on now?)
The estate totals nearly four million Norwegian Krone ($636,000) and will go into the coffers of FL Fart. The club is best known for their successful women’s team, which is playing in Norway’s top tier women’s league.
The team issued a statement on the “magnificent” gift, saying the board hasn’t decided how the funds will be allocated, but it will be brought up at their annual meeting to figure out how to best use them. For a club of such a small size, this donation will go a long way.
And since you’re still chuckling about the club name, “Fart” translates as “speed” in Norwegian.
