  1. Hi! My name is Gus. This is the first time I'm posting here so feel free to give critique. The Swedish top soccer division called Allsvenskan (All-Sweden) is a mid-level European League with teams from the late 1800's. Teams: AIK BK Häcken Djurgårdens IF GIF Sundsvall Hammarby IF IF Brommapojkarna IF Elfsborg IFK Göteborg IFK Norrköping IK Sirius Kalmar FF Malmö FF Trelleborgs FF Örebro SK Östersunds FK First up is the team from the island of Hissingen located in the Gothenburg arpelago. BK Häcken is a team founded in 1940 by two 14-15 year old boys that wanted to play games against other teams instead of just practicing. The name Häcken means Hedge in English. The original pitch was surrounded by two chestnut trees and a hedge, therefore the name BK Hedge. BK is short for Bollklubb which means ball club. The team has always worn yellow and black stripes earning the nickname Getingarna (Wasps). The primary kit has minor changes from the original while the clash kit has gone through a major change. The original is plain white with no striping, trims or design features. I changed it up giving them wings like a wasp (not really but the thought is there) to make it more interesting. C&C Appreciated
  2. I'm jumping outside of my comfort zone a little with this one! I've barely ever dipped my toes into soccer concepts, but really wanted to today. A couple of things have inspired treading into the soccer waters. Firstly, I love Sweden's new crest and felt a nudge to make some kits to go along with it. Secondly, through some recent geneology work, I've discovered that a much deeper heritage based out of Sweden than I initially thought - one of my great-great grandmother's family generations back all hail from either the Jonkoping or Goteborg areas. So I've had a bit of a Sweden kick as of late due to that fun and personal discovery. Anyways, here's my best stab at a Sweden set. I wanted each kit to be simple and straightforwards, but still have a little something to give it some personality. The primary features a design centered on the flag cross, the navy second with utilization of the national colors as trim, and the white third features a front design meant to be an abstract representation of a viking ship sail. And yes, that's the throwback Adidas logo because I think it's better than the current. Here goes!
  3. 1975 SFL Teams Nordic Conference Baltic Helsinki - Uppsala - Stockholm - Gavle Svea Eskilstuna - Vasteras - Goteburg - Örebro Contintntal Conference South Malmo - Aalborg - Copenhagen - Helsingborg Norman Oslo - Paris - London - Dublin Swedish Federation of American Football (SFAF) Inaugural Season 1965 1963 In late 1963 Swedish emigrant Anders Bergström, seeing a path to AFA ownership as iffy at best, took a trip back to his hometown of Uppsala, Sweden, where he met with several Swedish First Division Soccer Club owners and hatched a plan to bring America's Football to Sweden. With a positive first meeting, A.B. returned to Northern California and sold the majority stake in his logging empire, in order to free himself of the major responsibilities of day to day operations, while maintaining a 40% share that would give his new league a rather large nest-egg, and a steady flow of income that would help the league get past the first 5 years without worrying about turning a profit. Something A.B. knew how to do, and with cooperation from the AFA offices, he would do that inside of 3 years, or so he hoped. 1964 On his second trip to Sweden, A.B., along with league lawyers met with industry leaders, as well as 10 prospective team owners in Stockholm's Olympic District. the first order of business was to create a Board of Directors who would steer the league through hits infancy. And help select the first 6 teams. The second order was naming the league, Svenska Förbundet Amerikansk Football was unanimously agreed upon, or the Swedish Federation of American Football in English. A.B. and the board made the decision to adopt AFA rules, knowing that if the league were to thrive it would need to find a way to work as a place for American football players who had talent, but weren't ready for the league to grow and develop their games. This would bring the level of Scandinavian players skills up more rapidly than an organic course of seeding and watering. The SFAF would actively recruit players cut by AFA teams and each team would be allowed 8 American players on the team. This would include Americans currently living and working in Sweden. A Supplemental Draft would be held the week after AFA rosters were finalized. To start the first Season Each team would be allowed to select 10 American players in an Expansion Draft. These 10 players would be grandfathered into the rules, and as long as they remained on the team that drafted them, the 8 player limit would be waived. As these players were cut, retired, or moved into coaching, the teams numbers would roll back to 8 American maximum. The next order of business was selecting the first six cities to be awarded teams, and suprisingly 14 cities put in bids. The criteria was simple: Size of city Historical support of local teams Appropriate facilities and existing stadium able to hold 5,000 supporters Rail service Financial Stability All but one team was supported by an existing sports club with a history in the Swedish First Division of European Football Lund beat out Malmö strictly due to the support of SAAB AB, and a guarantee of travel expenses paid for the other five teams visiting Lund. Of the 14 proposals, 2 were selected for the leagues first expansion in 1967 (those names will be announced at the 1966 Supplemental Draft. 1965 The first season began with the Uppsala Hammers and Stockholm Vikings playing in Uppsala, in front of 4,876 mostly University students and American Expats. Stockholm won the game 22-20 on a 31 yard field goal by 39 year old former Uppsala Kunig (Swedish Premier League) striker #6 Bengt Lunden. Lunden played 18 years for the Kunig, helping them win 4 Premier League titles, and becoming the all-time scoring leader in the teams history. Ironically, Lunden won the leagues first game, on the same field he dominated for nearly two decades. The season was dominated by these same two teams, and the difference was Uppsala player/coach #10 QB Billy Johnson, a doctoral student at Uppsala's Linius University. Johnson was born in Aledo, Texas in 1935, and after a standout schoolboy career in Aledo, went on to play for the Ft Worth University Bearcats, being named 2nd team All- American as a junior, and pre-season All-American as a Senior. During the 4th game of his senior year, Johnson would suffer a thought to be career ending nee injury that required surgery, and at 5'9" 178 pounds, his pro career would be put on hold for 8 years as he went into coaching, and after 6 successful seasons leading Aledo HS to the state playoffs, he was awarded a scholarship to attend Linius University and earn a Doctorate in Education. Johnson heard about the league during a class and at the prodding of his classmates went to the open tryout. After about 5 minutes he was nor only offered the QB's job, but an additional stipend to be a player coach. It was his wide open passing game that would seal the Championship 4 months later in Stockholm, and redemption for the now 30 year old Rookie QB. Soon after the first season concluded Anders Bergström and several board members flew to San Francisco to meet with the AFA... History of a Fictional Football League
