The fixture between Helsingborgs IF and Malmö FF is a local derby in Scania, Sweden and a fierce rivalry. The derby does not have a common name, any derby in Scania is usually called a "Skånederby"[1] (English: Scanian derby), the fixture is sometimes referred to as Slaget om Skåne[2] (English: The battle for Scania). The rivalry has arisen due to the fact that the two clubs are the most successful clubs in Scania and also come from the two most populous cities in Scania. The two clubs have also played most seasons in the top tier league Allsvenskan of all Scanian clubs and they are also the only Scanian clubs to have won the Swedish football championship, Malmö FF with 18 titles and Helsingborgs IF with 5 titles.[3] In the early days of Swedish club football before the time of national league play the two clubs often faced each other in the final of the regional championship "Distriktmästerskapet".[4] The clubs have also faced each other in Svenska Cupen and Supercupen. The majority of all matches between the two clubs have taken place in Allsvenskan. The rivalry temporarily died out between 1968 and 1993 when they weren't playing in the same league, Helsingborgs IF had been relegated from Allsvenskan and spent 23 season in lower leagues while Malmö FF played in Allsvenskan.
