WELCOME TO STOCKHOLM

Most people wouldn’t think of planning a trip to Scandinavia to watch football in the first place, however, experiencing one of the main derbies in Stockholm should be on the top of your football bucket list. Stockholm, home of some of Sweden’s biggest clubs: Hammarby IF, Djurgärden and AIK is a great football destination to see arguably one of Europe’s top atmospheres during derby days.

The derby between Hammarby v AIK has escalated to insane levels over the last few years. AIK and Hammarby are arguably the two football clubs with the biggest support in Sweden. In 2015, two of the three games between these two teams had an attendance of 41 063 and 41 630 respectively, which is more than any other matches in the Nordic Countries. Hammarby consider Södermalm, the southern district of Stockholm City Centre where the club was founded, and the boroughs south of the said district, their heartland.

AIK has a strong concentration of fans in the northwest of Stockholm. Hammarby IF is not just a football club, it’s one big family with a big fan base. Supporting Hammarby means more to the locals than just watching a winning team, these fans are some of the most loyal in Sweden and have been there for their club through good and bad times. Experience football the local way in Sweden in April and witness why this derby has become one of Europe’s biggest derbies of the years. Get ready for an unreal football experience.
