Early daysLĂ„ngholmen Football club was founded in 2002 and is now an important part of the sporting and social life of the expatriate community in Stockholm. We currently run six men’s and two women's teams.

So far, our teams have won four championships and ten promotions. 2010 represented a pinnacle for our first team, playing in Division 3 of the national leagues. 2013 sees us in Stockholm Division 5 M, but we hope to return to Division 3 as soon as we can with our new management team and new dedicated approach. Also in 2013 our Reserves R1 team will be kicking off in the same higher reserves league guaranteeing a really high standard of football. This means our first and reserve team squad is a very attractive one to join this year. We also celebrated our 10th anniversary year in 2012 and topped it off with our dream fixture on August 20th against IFK Göteborg (yep, it's very true: check the site for reports and tv clips) in our Swedish Cup match here in Stockholm. A night to remember.

LFC signIt’s incredible to think that just ten years ago, after a few months of friendly kickabouts on LĂ„ngholmen's gravel pitch, a few friends formed the club and entered our first team in the lowest Korpen league. Although English is generally the main language used by LĂ„ngholmen players and a slight majority of members have tended to be from the British Isles, the club has always been proud of its international mix of players. We like to consider ourselves an international team, with a proud tradition of becoming a second-home for many a travelling footballer.

We have had members from several European countries, the US, Australia and New Zealand, and been livened up by a regular supply of South Americans. Not forgetting a steady increase in young Swedish members. In total we have has around 26(!) different nationalities playing for us. In short, all are welcome.


 As previously mentioned, we have a thriving social community, consisting of over 150 members, plus family and friends.
Grus pitchOur website and forum is used as our central information point: offering details of training, matches, kickabouts and social events, as well as providing a source of useful tips, helpful answers and a fair few laughs.





Our main sponsors currently include The Southside Pub, (Zinkensdamm, Södermalm), A0chM, The Local. As well, we have a special football relationships with fitness clubs that help keep our elite teams in top trim throughout the year.

NOSTALGIA: Below is a short piece about a LĂ„ngholmens season of the past written by one of LFCs footballing legends Mr. James Passmore:

LĂ„ngholmen Football Club

Three words.

Early timesThree words that have started fires in the hearts of some and fear into thehearts of others. A club that started as no more than a collection of travellers, lost souls and renegades searching for the opportunity to play ball, the chance to scream, kick, argue, curse, shoot, pass, score, celebrate, blame, suck in the frozen air, sweat in the summer heat, slip on the ice. How far we have come, gentlemen. And of course,ladies, now. But it has not been an easy ride.........this pre-season rambling of words is dedicated to you. All of you..all of us...the safeestablishment of our club has required passion, understanding, organisation, discipline, empathy, sympathy, teamwork, even nagging and setting of rules. Our greatest victory to date is that we are still here as a club and facing a new season. In our second season, a season riddled with learning experiences, mistakes and “could do betters” we won two promotions, one league title, are still in the cup and walked off with a European cup winners cup! Go the L®s.....

The new season will bring new challenges and new faces. We welcome both with open arms. Old enemies will be fought on past and present battlefields, new enemies will find us tougher and more determined than ever. We may lose, as we have lost before, but we never give up....we will win, as we have won before, with grace and style. (Unless of course we play “Bajen break your legs”, just kidding) However before we look to the future, can we take one last glance at the past?
Indulge me....let me tell you some of my highlights from last season. Please “return all” and tell us yours...as last season is very shortly forgotten. Lest we forget......


SidelinesWithout a doubt
the most important is the way the club settled down after the first few games. We found it hard to find our rolls, Who? Which team? Who does what? When? Where? Heated words were exchanged and e-mails were exchanged faster than trading floors tabs and half time arguments were the summer trend. We ended the season with harmony and focus in the club..and deserved our success.


The last korpen game (against Gary Glitter) was almost broadcast to my sickbed live by supporters mobile phones. That game I am so sad to have missed. The korp ten man victory against 11 and a ref...who can forget that....Daniels breathtaking saves to ensure the first Gary Glitter victory?

The apologies from the opposition for the behaviour of the referee? They come flooding back now....Teds 50 yard equaliser in Div 8, beating Viking away from home with more wounded players than fresh.. ...Putting 7 past the Tudor in style....

Our internal friendlies...wrought with competition, passion and excitement.....the final in Berlin!!! Oh my god... gladiators.....I have never been so knackered!.. :-) The last 10 minutes of that game was the strongest example of teamwork I have to date... Justin's desperate clearance..tackle after tackle... Goosebumps.

Some players playing for both sides...some in different positions, Roy of the rovers stuff!.........DaraÂŽs goal, one for the books....PeterÂŽs curling corners and Beckham style free kicks, defences giving nothing away and midfields running their hearts out...Richies wonder goal, Mark and Tom running through on goal, Robbie scoring and scoring again, Bushnell getting a brace, Andy playing in three positions in 2 days, Div 8 scoring frrely from all positions, Tim and Paul breaking the net frequently, the red cards, the yellows......the memories are great, thank you. Please send me your favourites. Half a season injured was made so much easier by our amazing performances. An enormous thank you to those in management and organisation and of course to our loyal supporters. I will leave you with a kind word and thought. The one thing that always stands out most from last season has nothing to do with a win, a goal, a personal or team achievement. It has to do with the club members attitude to each other and to newcomers. On the night that Artoo our star polish attacking midfielder striker was to be deported I asked him if he would be back and if he would miss Sweden. He said he would be back, but he would miss playing football with the boys...

It then struck me how much a small club can mean to us. We have lost some friends to foreign shores and we have gained new ones. Thank you for the good times, the memories and the respect for each other that should stand us well for the challenges ahead.....
