Allsvenskan (literally, "The All Swedish") is the highest league in the league system of Swedish football. The league was created in 1924. Before that, the top league in Sweden had been called Svenska Serien. Since 2008 season 16 teams have taken part instead of 14 previously.

Status

The champions of the Allsvenskan are considered Swedish Champions since 1931. The winners of Allsvenskan before that, between 1924 and 1930, were only considered league winners. The same is true for the years 1982 through 1990 when the champions were decided through play-offs and 1991–1992 when the champions were decided through a continuation league called Mästerskapsserien.

The competition

There are 16 clubs in Allsvenskan, increased from 14 participants from 2008 onwards. During the course of a season (starting in March and ending in October) each club plays the others twice (home and away) for a total of 30 games. The two lowest placed teams at the end of the season are relegated to Superettan and the top two teams from Superettan were promoted in their place. The third lowest team in Allsvenskan plays a relegation/promotion play-off against the third placed team in Superettan.

The winners of Allsvenskan qualify for the UEFA Champions League, the runner-up togheter with the third placed team in the table qualify for the UEFA Europa League as well as the team who wins the Svenska Cupen. Since the start of Royal League in 2004, the four top placed teams enter that tournament together with four teams from Norway and four from Denmark.

But with the expansion of Allsvenskan to the 2008 season with two teams, Kentaro sold TV4 the rights to 36 extra matches to be aired on TV4 Sport, this has led to a lawsuit from C More Entertainment suing Kentaro over the rights for the new matches, the case has at the moment has been appealed to the Supreme Court of Sweden, the verdict from the Court of Appeal was in C More Entertainment's favour.
