The king actually never visited Söderhamn.UnemploymentIn October 2012, organised by the local authorities of Söderhamn and Sweden's national employment office, anyone aged 18–28 could apply to be paid to find a job in Oslo, Norway, in an attempt to reduce local youth unemployment. Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, project manager Magnus Nilsen said: "Going to Norway to find work has always been quite popular with young people, but sometimes they want to go but don't know how to find a job or accommodation so we thought we'd give them a bit of help with both." Those who sign up are given a free ticket to the Norwegian capital, while also being put up in a youth hostel for up to a month while searching for employment.SportsThe biggest local sport is bandy. Broberg/Söderhamn Bandy play in the highest division Elitserien. Many in high positions, like coach of the national team or member of the Federation of International Bandy board, have come from Söderhamn, like the current Secretary General Bo Nyman.
