End of home and away season – time for semifinal

We have now reached the end of the home and away season.
It has been a great season for the Swans, full of good games, surprizes, unfortunately some bumps and bruises, but – at the same time – players rising above showing that they are capable of great things.
This has landed us third in the ladder and that means that we will play the semi final against the second team on the ladder – our brothers in Solna Axemen.

It was quite sometime ago that Årsta got to play a semifinal in the SAFF, so we are very proud of this opportunity.
The game will take place at Skarpnäcks sportfält on Saturday, Sept 12, 2015
at noon.

Take part in this great event.
Come down and cheer for the Swans and help us play the best footy we possible can.

Welcome

Go Årsta!!!!

Round 6 – Årsta Swans v Södermalm Blues

We have reached round 6 of the SAFF season and our last game before the summer holidays is against Södermalm Blues. We have met them once before this season and it was a fantastic game. They won but only by 4 goals and we even had the upperhand at halftime.

If this is not reason enuough to get you to come down to Skarpnäcks sportfält, then i can offer you another game right after the Swans v Blues game.

Solna Axemen and Bromma Vikings will battle it out and it will surely be epic.

To crown the evening the Bromma boys will be in charge of the BBQ and selling of refreshing drinks.

Now is that not the ultimate way to start of the weekend?

Come on down to the oval!!

Round 1 of SAFF 2015 is here!

The day we have been waiting for is finally here!

On Sunday May 3 the SAFF season starts, and the first game of the double header is Swans versus Norrtälje Dockers.
Both teams are psyched up and are dead set to step of the oval with a win.

Come on down to Skarpnäcks sportfält and watch the game!
Ball up is at 11:00 and the second game of the day, between Södermalm Blues and last years winners – Solna Axemen will start at 12:30

Game info will be available here

The season starts with a clash of titans

On Saturday, April 25, the footy season starts at the oval in Skarpnäck, and it starts with the first round of Elitserien.
Elitserien is the brand new tournament in Sweden where four powerhouse teams will meet in six rounds to crown the national champions. The teams will play 18 players a side, as opposed to the 9-a-side version we normally play – so it will be fast, tough and exciting footy!

The schedule of the day is as follows:
Södermalm vs Port Malmö at 1pm
ANZAC ceremony at 2pm
Sthlm Dynamite vs Helsingborg at 2.35pm

The Stockholm Dynamite team consists of players from Solna Axemen, Bromma Vikings, Norrtälje Dockers and Årsta Swans, and are being coached by our very own Robert Young. Årsta will be represented by six players; Glenn, Duncan, Mattis, Jonas, Patrik and Rob.

Helsingborg Saints are one of Swedens oldest footy teams, have played in the Danish league, and is one of the most productive teams when it comes to supplying players for the Swedish national team – The Elks.
So if you want to see swedish footy at its best – this is the event you can not miss.
Come to Skarpnäckssportfält and be a part of the new era of Swedish Footy!

If you are interested in the game and would like to learn more, or even try to play it – come to the game and meet the team. There will be Swans players on the field as well as in the crowd.

Welcome!

A new season is here, sooner than you think

The streets are paved with ice, the cold wind makes you hide indoors and the sun is hardly able to stay above the horizon passed 4 PM.
Nothing in that sentence makes you think of footy season, i agree.
But that does not mean that nothing is happening, it is quite the opposite.

Training has started a few weeks back, together with the Solna Axemen.
We have also secured access to a facility for our own Swans training.
The Swans AGM meeting is in a couple of days and – before you know it we will be standing on the oval in Skarpnäck waiting for “ball up”.
