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”.

Do you want to know more about aussie rules football?
Why don´t you come down and give it a try! It is fun, fast and filled with action. Everybody can participate and anyone is welcome.

Swans back in action this weekend

After bye (rain) comes game time (sunshine) as the old saying goes!

After a bye weekend for the Swans, where some squad members has had the chance to recuperate from minor knocks, and some players participated in the Swedish Elks vs. Stockholm Dynamite game, it’s finally footy time again!

This Friday will see the Swans go head to head with Södermalm blues at the JCG, in what promises to be a thrilling clash between a young and promising Swans squad and an established Söder squad. The Swans will prepare throughly with training on Tuesday, and a light session on Thursday.
