Who are we?
Pan Idræt is the common name for two multi-stranded sports clubs (Pan Idræt København and Pan Idræt Frederiksberg) with over 25 different sports and activities - we have activities in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg and together we have over 1100 members.
We focus on creating an inclusive and safe space for sporting ambitions and strong social relationships - and we know from our members that we are experts in this. We are also proud that others agree with this - our membership is increasing with approx. 4 pct. per year.

Pan Sports's activities are for the most part organized in the more than 25 departments that the club contains. Our members are therefore part of several communities - both the community that goes across the various sports and the close community that is on the individual sports teams.
We can see that it gives a very special strength to have several communities, and this means that as a member of Pan Idræt you can effortlessly and flexibly choose from the wide range of sports offerings that fit into a busy everyday life.
Pan Idræt København was founded as a sports association for gays and lesbians back in 1984 - while Pan Idræt Frederiksberg was born in 2012 in the Student House in Copenhagen.
Pan Idræt's first purpose was to create a free space for gays and lesbians, where they could play sports - unfortunately back in 1984 there was not much understanding of homosexuals in sports. The first department in Pan Sports that was founded was the swimming department (today Copenhagen Mermates), as gays were not welcome in the "regular swimming clubs".
Fortunately, such attitudes in many places today are a thing of the past.
However, this has not meant that people choose Pan Idræt from - on the contrary, the association has grown continuously since it seceded from the National Association for Gays and Lesbians (today LGBT + Denmark). Pan Idræt currently has over 1250 members.
Today we are a modern sports club - trying to get out of the outdated and exclusive LGBT concept - we focus on the inclusion of people with a special focus on sexual diversity and gender diversity.
We are pleased to see an increasing search for our community from i.a. transgender people. It is a great privilege for us as a sports club to be actively chosen in this way.
Since 2011, we have had a firm focus on the development of our management, communication and offerings. This development meant in 2015 that Pan Idræt was named Danish Champion in Association Development at a major national competition in DGI, and in the spring of 2016 DGI named Greater Copenhagen Pan Sports as the Association of the Year.
Sports and social community
Pan Idræt is not an elite sports club - although we have many ambitious athletes with a desire for a medal harvest. The basis for our sport is the community and then you as a participant in the individual sports find your own level. We have some very ambitious departments with level division of teams.
