These make it possible for the website to automatically recognize you the next time you are active on Next Gen Athletes and make the whole visit easier for you by remembering some of your previous choices and information.
You can of course visit Next Gen Athletes without accepting cookies, but we ask you to note that this can affect your experience on the website negatively, as functions that depend on cookies disappear.
