Brønshøj Boldklub is a Danish football club located in Copenhagen, and currently placed in the Danish 1st Division. Brønshøj Boldklub was founded in 1919, but had their first league appearance in the season of 1944-45. Brønshøj Boldklub has been a part of the Danish league system ever since, mostly playing in the two lower divisions. The team had short spells in the highest division (then called 1. division) in the early 1960s and the early 1970s, and half a dozen players made it to the Danish national team. Brønshøj Boldklubs golden era came about in the middle of the 1980s, when two consecutive promotions saw them a place in the 1. division. The culmination came in the season of 1984, when the team finished in the 5'th place, the clubs all time high. The club was relegated in 1989, and has not been represented in the best league since. Despite modest budgets Brønshøj Boldklub has maintained their league status, currently playing in the 2'nd best league and doing it well in the recent years.
