The fixture for 2017 has now been set and can be found here on the site.
A few things have changed this year, as you might have seen.
This year there are only four teams playing in the SAFF league; Årsta Swans, Norrtälje Dockers, Södermalm Blues and Solna Axemen.
The Bromma Vikings will be in hiatus during the 2017 season and their active players will play with the Solna Axemen.
We are also striving to play 12-a-side games as opposed to the 9-a-side game we have been playing. We are hoping that all teams will have the manpower to be able to fill a 12 + bench roster. More on this in the beginning of the season.
The SAFF has also been in contact with Stockholms Stad and the league has been promised a grandstand to be put next to the oval at Skarpnäcks sportfält. This is something we feel has been missing for a long time and we hope that this will enhance the spectators viewing experience.
The first games – a double header, will be played on May 6th.
Mark that day in your calendar and come down to the oval and kick off an awesome new season!
See you there!
One for all, All for Årsta!
