Breiðablik is a multi-sports club from Kópavogur, a short distance south of Reykjavík (Iceland). The club was founded in 1950 and is the largest sports club in the country, as it counts on several sports divisions (both men’s and women’s), including football, athletics, basketball, karate, dance, skiing and swimming. The name Breiðablik comes from Norse mythology: it was the home of Baldur. The nickname ‘Blikar’ comes from the second part of the name, and it means splendours or twinkles (like a star).
