Date of birth
Sven started playing football at a local club at the age of 8 and discovered freestyle football in its very early stages in 2006, thus making him one of the first practitioners of the sport. The freedom associated with it made him quit playing regular football and pursue his newly-discovered passion. In the beginning, Sven was particularly drawn to the more technical side of the sport and sought recognition by continuously pushing his own limits.
For the past years, Sven has been competing in various competitions all over the world. In his first ever competition in 2009, he finished as runner-up in the Belgian national finals. Later on, Sven represented Luxembourg in the Red Bull Street Style World Finals in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016. In addition, he made it to the semi-finals at the European Championships in Amsterdam with around 50 athletes participating, and finished in 10th place at the Red Bull World Cup in Beijing in 2016.
Due to his high efforts and achievements in competitions, Sven quickly made a name for himself over the years. Thus, he was featured in various advertising campaigns and worked with clients such as UNESCO, Daniel Wellington, Red Bull, GoPro and Happy Socks.
With 13 years of experience, Sven is leading the Luxembourgish freestyle football community and strives to make the sport more popular in his country. He also does workshops with teenagers at various events, allowing him to pass on his knowledge to the next generation and encourage them to start their own freestyle football journey. Moreover, Sven actively participates in the “Freestyle-Tour”, a programme initiated by the Luxembourgish government to make urban sports more accessible to kids.
Nowadays, Sven is still pushing his limits. He is in constant pursuit to challenge his own style by creating a unique and original flow that sets him apart from other freestylers.
