Stockholms Stadion
Djurgårdens IF Fotboll, commonly known as Djurgården ( or ), is a Swedish football club based at Stadionmarker in Östermalmmarker. They are currently playing in the highest Swedish league, Allsvenskan.

Formed in 1891, the club has 11 national championship titles and 4 national cup titles. Djurgården were relegated from Allsvenskan in 1999, but after one year in the second tier, Superettan, they returned to the top flight in 2001. Dominating Swedish football in the first half of the 2000s, they finished second in 2001, won Allsvenskan and the cup - Svenska Cupen - in 2002, Allsvenskan in 2003, and Svenska Cupen in 2004, before winning Allsvenskan for a third time in 2005.

History

Djurgårdens IF was founded 12 March 1891 at a café in Alberget 4A on Djurgårdenmarker. The first real football field in Stockholm was created in 1896 and Djurgårdens IF's football department was formed in 1899, with the help of former GAIS-player Teodor Andersson. The first real achievement was made in 1902 when the team finished second in the tournament Rosenska Pokalen. Just two years later, in 1904, the first Swedish Championship final of the club was played, ending in a defeat against Örgryte IS. The team finished second in three more finals before the first Championship victory came in 1912 after two draws in the final matches against Örgryte, and a replay which Djurgården won. The club won three more Swedish Championships in the early years, in 1915 against Örgryte, 1917 against AIK and 1920 against IK Sleipner. However, DIF never managed to win Svenska Serien, the top Swedish league of the period, before the club's first great era ended.Between 1911 and 1935, Tranebergs Idrottsplats was the homeground for Djurgården. For the 1912 Summer Olympics, Stockholms Stadionmarker was built. It became Djurgården's home arena in 1936.

The club did not qualify for the first season of Allsvenskan, and only reached that league twice between 1924 and 1944, being directly relegated back down to Division 2 both times. The club did also play three seasons in the then third highest league, Division 3, between 1929 and 1932. From 1944 on, the club became a stable Allsvenskan club. In 1951, the team became runner-ups in Svenska Cupen after Malmö FF, this was the team's first Cup final. The second great era took place in the 1950s and 1960s, winning Allsvenskan four times during the period. In 1959, both the football team and Djurgårdens IF's hockey team won their respective Swedish Championships of Sweden's two most popular sports, a remarkable happening.

The 1970s saw no greater successes, with three third-places as the best results. The 1980s was not a good decade for the club, being relegated from Allsvenskan in 1981, and losing two promotion play-offs, before making a one year visit in the highest league in 1986, although DIF returned two years later, and stayed in Allsvenskan for five consecutive seasons, but had no greater success except losing the Championship final in 1988. The 1990s saw Djurgården being relegated from Allsvenskan no less than three times, and being promoted back two times. During this decade, the club suffered from great economical problems and was close to bankruptcy. The first half of the 2000s was a golden era for the club, with three championships (2002, 2003 and 2005) and three cup wins (2002, 2004 and 2005).

Former England striker Teddy Sheringham had a brief spell at Djurgården early in his career, as a 19-year-old loanee in 1985.

Fans

Rivals

Djurgården's main rivals are AIK and Hammarby.

Abbreviation problems outside Sweden

Outside Sweden, the club is often referred to incorrectly as "Djurgårdens", which means "Djurgården's". The club's full name is Djurgårdens Idrottsförening, abbrieviated Djurgårdens IF, which literally translates to "Djurgården's Sports Association". Helsingborgs IF, Halmstads BK and Trelleborgs FF have the same problem.
