IF Heimer is a Swedish football club located in Lidköping in Lidköping Municipality, Västra Götaland County.[1]

Background[edit]

IF Heimer is a sports club from Lidköping that was founded by a bunch of lads in the town on 18 March 1906.

Since their foundation IF Heimer has participated mainly in the middle divisions of the Swedish football league system. Their best period was in the 1920s including the years 1925 to 1928 when they played in Division 2 Västsvenska which was then the second tier of Swedish football. In 1941 they played a Division 2 promotion qualification match with Skogen before 4,027 spectators but their all time attendance record was the 4,178 people who attended a friendly match against IFK Norrkoping in 1948.[2]

The lowest point for the club was in 1952 when they finished bottom of Division 5 but they subsequently played many years in Division 3 followed by spells in Division 2 over the last 2 decades.[3] The club currently plays in Division 3 Mellersta Götaland which is the fifth tier of Swedish football.[4] They have played their home matches at the Framnäs IP in Lidköping since 1915.[5]

IF Heimer are affiliated to the Västergötlands Fotbollförbund.[6]
