Meet Finn Anker Horn (96)
Almost every club or team have some persons or personalities that stands out from the crowd. We have Finn Anker Horn. Watch video (Norwegian), at the bottom of the article, or read the text to know one of the key members in Fram Larvik. A fantastic guy!
Every day before a match, Finn Anker shows up in his red car with a big smile on his face. The red car he won in Fram’s car-lottery in 1979. Before every match, he comes with a box of bananas to the team, perfectly packed and cut. He never misses a match and have worked for the club in 80 (!) years.
After delivering bananas to the boys, most people his age would go home for a rest. However, Finn Anker’s day has just started. The 96-year-old man looks like a man in his early 70’s. He takes place in the box office, handing out the match program, sells tickets and smiles to the same persons every home game year after year.
On his spare time, he visits retirement homes to help the elderly, even though he is the oldest one there. We really want to show our gratitude to you Finn Anker for all effort you put down! Thank you!
We spoke to Finn Anker before the game against Egersund. In his “office”, 2 hours before kick-off he was handing out programs. We know he is a bit shy, but we had to get som words from the legend. Finn Anker gladly invites us over. He tells us a bit about himself, and some storiesfrom the past. Back in the days he handed out gum to all the players before the games: “Before a game in Skien, I was delayed, and one of the boys bought gum for the team, not expecting me to show up. When I arrived, I saw all the boys spitting out their gum. They tried to hide it, maybe they were afraid of me,” says Finn Anker laughing.
It has been a long time since Fram Larvik last saw glory, but Finn Anker has never stopped caring and supporting his team. Now he is really hoping that Fram will become bigger and someday beat Bayern. “It would be a dream, not only for me but for the fans, players and the people of Norway. Having the world’s largest club in Norway would be amazing for the nation” Watch the #beatbayern promo video
We look forward to having you around for another 100 years Finn Anker.
