Overview

Join us in Stockholm for a city derby that will blow you away.

Fans are starting to see Sweden for what it really is – one of Europe’s most explosive football cultures. Stockholm is the epicentre of this. And when the city’s biggest clubs collide, things escalate to a level rarely seen on European shores.

The derby between Hammarby v Djurgärden has escalated to insane levels over the last few years. The fixture between Djurgårdens IF and Hammarby IF is a local derby in Stockholm. This intense football rivalry traces its origin back to the later half of the 1910s but did not reach relevance until the 1950s and 60s.

There is a certain social aspect in the Hammarby – Djurgården rivalry. Hammarby consider Södermalm, the southern, originally working-class, district of Stockholm City Centre where the club was founded, as well as the boroughs just south of said district, their heartland. Djurgården counts Östermalm, the affluent district that forms the eastern part of the city centre, and where their former home ground Stadion is situated, as their stronghold.

In 2013, both Djurgården and Hammarby moved into the newly built Tele2 Arena, just south of the city centre. This increased tensions significantly between the two sets of fans. Experience this derby the local way in Sweden and witness why this derby has become one of Europe’s biggest derbies of the years. Get ready for an unreal football experience.

Hammarby and AIK are two of Scandinavia’s biggest and best-supported clubs. But this is more than a sporting rivalry. It’s territorial too. Hammarby see the southern portion of Stockholm as their heartland. While AIK command vast support in the city’s northeast.

So what can you expect when they clash? Well, there’ll be a sell-out crowd of around 40,000 for starters. There’ll be smoke and pyro a plenty. And there will be times you can’t hear yourself think. To put it bluntly, you’ll witness something you never thought Swedish football would or could deliver. It’s that good.

Your weekend will be led by a local Hammarby fan. He will take you to right to the core of Stockholm’s football scene. Making you feel completely at home and giving you the chance to eat, drink, sing, and experience Swedish football like a local.

Your tour includes match tickets and accommodation. The secret’s starting to get out. But you can witness Stockholm’s derby while it’s still raw and completely authentic.

Homefans and their local hosts are now taking bookings for the Stockholm Derby – for the below dates:

15th of May: Hammarby v Djurgården (6 spots left).

You can secure your place with a 30% deposit and should circumstances change this becomes credit for any future trip.

FAQs

You can do it if you wish.

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting, we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking. However, our destination managers and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

Homefans is for everyone!

If we can accept children, there will be an option to do so in the booking flow. However, for some trips, our local hosts take the decision to open this up to adults only, based on the content of the tour. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I extend my stay / upgrade my hotel?

Yes, you can extend your stay by clicking on the EXTRAS section at checkout, choosing the number of extra nights you wish to extend your stay.

For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!

Stockholm. what a weekend!

After months in the making, the trip delivered everything and more than what I expected, it was the complete weekend. The organisation from start to finish really was first class. I didn't expect to feel so welcome in a foreign country, especially from another club. The game wasn't a classic, but will be one I never forget. It was one of the best cities and weekends I've had in Europe.

My 2nd trip with Homefans and Luke was on both trips! Absolutely loved every minute of it. Great atmosphere, met some very welcoming Hammarby fans and the trip was very well organised on the whole. Looking forward to the next trip to Hammarby already!

Great weekend in Stockholm

I went with 2 friends to the Stockholm derby via Homefans and it was great. The main reason to travel with them is for me is that you meet local people en see local hot spots. In Sweden it was no different as we felt welcome and had a great time there!
