Joakim Sjöhage (born 27 September 1986) is a Swedish footballer who plays for Varbergs BoIS as a striker.


Sjöhage started his career in the Swedish club IF Elfsborg where he won the Swedish Premier League in 2006 and Supercupen in 2007. He was a regular on the team that won the Premiership-gold, but in the 2007, Elfsborg bought in new strikers and went over to using a one-striker-formation, thus making it hard for Sjöhage to retain a spot on the team.

On 3 July it was reported that Norwegian Premier League title contenders Brann were interested in his signature.[2] He signed a 3.5 year deal with Brann on July 4, 2007.[3]

He got his debut for Brann on 29 July 2007, when he got a couple of minutes against Strømsgodset IF in the Norwegian Premier League.[4]

He struggled to get a regular place in Mons Ivar Mjeldes first eleven, finding himself fourth in line for a starting position after international strikers Thorstein Helstad, Robbie Winters and Ármann Smári Björnsson, even after Bengt Sæternes left for the Danish team Odense BK.[5]

In 2008 he returned to Elfsborg on loan, with an option to make the move permanent, however at the end of the season it was reported that he had signed for Trelleborgs FF.[6] Following the end of the 2011 season Sjöhage's contract with Trelleborg ended and he decided to leave the club for Varbergs BoIS, newelly promoted to Superettan from Division 1 Södra.[7]
