History[edit]

A chart showing the progress of IFK Luleå through the swedish football league system. The different shades of gray represent league divisions.

IFK Luleå played one season in the Allsvenskan in 1971 but after a promising start their stay was short-lived as they were relegated at the end of the season. In the late 1980s and most of the 1990s the club enjoyed their heyday by playing in Division 1 Norra, which at that time was the second tier of Swedish football. Over the last decade IFK Luleå have been competing in the Division 2 Norrland which is now the fourth tier of the Swedish football league system. For 4 consecutive seasons between 2006 and 2009 they have experienced the frustration of finishing in second position and consequently missing out on promotion.

In 2010 under new coach Fredrik Waara did they finally finish in first place and receive promotion to Division 1 Norra where they finished in tenth place during the next two seasons.

The club is affiliated to the Norrbottens Fotbollförbund.[1]
