Elm brothers handed Women's EURO honour

Rasmus Elm said it was "an honour" for him and brothers Viktor and David to return to the city of Kalmar in order to be named as ambassadors for UEFA Women's EURO 2013.

Rasmus, Viktor and David Elm have been unveiled as ambassadors for UEFA Women's EURO 2013 venue Kalmar.

The brothers were all influential members of Kalmar FF's maiden Swedish First Division title in 2008 before embarking on impressive careers overseas. Rasmus of AZ Alkmaar is a mainstay of the Swedish national team, while sc Heerenveen's Viktor has ten caps to his name. David plies his trade at IF Elfsborg, having returned to his homeland last year following a spell at Premier League outfit Fulham FC.

"It's great to have a final tournament on home turf, which I've experienced once with the Under-21s [in 2009]," said Rasmus. "It's an honour for us brothers to be ambassadors for UEFA Women's EURO 2013." Johan Göransson of the local organising committee in Kalmar added: "We picked the Elm brothers because they're down-to-earth and because they love football. They represent good values."
