New year, new season coming up, are you pumped?

2016 is here! Pre-season has started hosted by our brothers in Södermalm Blues.
The Australia Day party is on Saturday and the AGM is coming up in a few days.
Things are in motion and we are pumped to see what this season will bring.

2015 was a good year for the Swans. We finished third on the ladder after being defeated by the Axemen in the semifinals. Axemen was, in turn, defeated by Södermalm Blues who stood as victors of the SAFF league in early October.

So, we are pumped to get things started and we hope you are too!

Are you interested in joining us to make 2016 even greater?
Have you had the idea that footy would be a cool thing to try out?
Well, it is time to put that idea into action, my friend!
Anyone and everyone are welcome, regardless of age or prior experience.
Get in contact with us!

If you want to meet us in person first, then the Australia Day party we have on Saturday is the perfect occasion. We will host an event together with the Stockholm Netball club at the pub Big Ben on Folkungagatan 97. The party starts at 16.30 and will cost you 120 SEK at the door, but that will gain you access to some mighty fine company, drinks, raffles and unexpected shenanigans. So come on down!

What: Australia Day Party
Where: Folkungagatan 97, Stockholm, Sweden

2011 Australia Day success

Thanks for all the support & the wonderful turnout for the 2011 Australia Day Party, organised by the Årsta Swans, hosted by The Liffey, Irish Pub & Restaurant.

It was great to see so many people having a great time! Our beancounters are counting the buckets of donations we received for the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal. We’ve picked out the best photos & put them on the Årsta Swans Facebook site and shared them here, below. Thanks to Jorja Scholes for taking the vast majority of the photos.

Email contact@arstaswans.se if you want a full-size photo.

Thanks again!
