IS Halmia is a football club, located in Halmstad, Sweden.[2]

Background[edit]

IS Halmia was founded on 16 June 16, 1907 and currently plays in Division 1 Södra.[3] In 1932 the club became the first team from Halmstad to reach the Allsvenskan, the highest football league in Sweden. In total IS Halmia has played 11 seasons in the Allsvenskan, the last time being in 1979. The club's best spell was from 1944 until 1950 when they spent seven seasons at the top level. They have also enjoyed 44 seasons playing second tier Swedish football. However they have been less successful in recent years.

The club shares Örjans vall with, its rival of many years, Halmstads BK.[4] They still hold the record attendance of 20,381 spectators for a promotion playoff match in 1962. IS Halmia are affiliated to the Hallands Fotbollförbund.[5]
