Overview

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

You might have thought Sweden was all pretty women and flatpack furniture.

But 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 in October and witness why this derby has become one of Europe’s biggest derbies of the years. Get ready for an unreal football experience.

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 Mikael – a third generation Hammarby fan who has been showing us his culture for many years.

Mikael 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.

The secret’s starting to get out. But you can witness Stockholm’s derby while it’s still raw and completely authentic.

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.

Stockholm Derby

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!
