Karlbergs BK is a Swedish football club located in Karlberg in Birkastaden, an area in the southwestern part of Vasastan in central Stockholm.[1]

Background[edit]

Karlbergs Bollklubb were formed on the 15th May 1912 at a meeting held in a property at Karlbergsvägen 74 in Vasastan. Almost a century after this historic meeting hundreds of boys and girls from Vasastan, Lindhagen and Kungsholmen districts wear the club's red and white colours.[2] The name of the club was later changed to "Widar" before being registered as Karlbergs Bollklubb in 1919.

Since their foundation Karlbergs BK has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 2 Norra Svealand which is the fourth tier of Swedish football.[3] They play their home matches at the idyllic Kristinebergs IP in the district of Kristineberg on Kungsholmen in central Stockholm.[4]

Karlbergs BK are affiliated to Stockholms Fotbollförbund.[5]

The club has also been playing bandy and ice hockey. While the ice hockey department is defunct since its fusion with another ice hockey club, the bandy department is formally just dormant since 2003.
