Arboga Södra IF is a Swedish football club located in Arboga in Västmanland County.[1]


Arboga Södra Idrottsföreningen were formed in May 1933 by sports enthusiasts in Södra Skogen in Arboga. A major project undertaken was the development of Ekbacken IP in 1967 and the restoration of the "Södragården" as a clubhouse. The municipality donated the building and construction materials to the club who themselves undertook the extensive renovation of the dilapidated building. The changing pavilion was built in 1975-76 and later extended with two dressing rooms, a meeting room and a kiosk.[2]

Since their foundation Arboga Södra IF has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 3 Västra Svealand which is the fifth tier of Swedish football.[3] They play their home matches at the Ekbackens IP in Arboga.[4]
