Press release, Luleå, 4 October 2023: Data Ductus, one of the largest IT consulting companies in Luleå, is now an official partner of Luleå Basket, Sweden’s most successful women’s basketball team over the past decade. The agreement covers the next three seasons.
As a leading IT consulting company with a strong local presence, Data Ductus aims to build partnerships and support initiatives that enrich and develop the cities in which it operates in. In Luleå, they have entered a collaboration with Luleå Basket – a women’s basketball team with a rich heritage and multiple national championship titles.
“Diversity is something we strive for,” says Anders Hermanson, Site Manager at Data Ductus in Luleå. “It therefore feels right to contribute to the development of women’s sports, especially at a club like Luleå Basket whose values closely reflect our own.”
The collaboration runs over three years and indirectly also contributes to the city of Luleå’s future development.
“A growing and prosperous Luleå is an important prerequisite for tech talents to stay or indeed return here, enabling us to meet customer demand for IT resources. Luleå Basket plays an important role in society by inspiring and encouraging young people to play sports and pursue their dreams. The team also creates a wonderful community and pride for the city,” concludes Anders Hermanson.
“We are delighted to welcome Data Ductus as gold partners of the club,” says Christer Sehlin, Club Director Luleå Basket. “Cooperation with businesses is extremely important as we continue to develop operations. Commitment from locals is particularly close to our hearts.”

About Luleå Basket
Luleå Basket was founded in 1979. Today it is one of Sweden’s strongest elite sporting associations. The club’s aim is to influence elite sports for women in Sweden. The approach to women’s elite sports must fundamentally change, and the bar must be raised significantly. Luleå Basket wants to give players the conditions to develop as individuals and the opportunity to make a living from sport.
Luleå Basket combines basketball with experiences where people meet, celebrate and get inspired. Winning eight of the last decade’s Swedish championships, the club is moving ahead with European goals as it strives to become Sweden’s leading women’s elite club. However, it is not only profits and gold medals that count; the club is a social actor, partner, friend and sister.
