Landskrona BoIS (short for Landskrona Boll och Idrottsällskap, English: Landskrona Ball and Sports Society, locally referred to as BoIS) is a Swedish professional football club located in Landskrona, Scania, which currently plays in Superettan, the second tier of football in Sweden. The club was formed on 7 February 1915 through the merger of two older Landskrona clubs, IFK Landskrona and Diana.

Landskrona BoIS was one of the twelve teams in the inaugural Allsvenskan season in 1924-25. Since then, they have played 34 seasons in Allsvenskan and 51 seasons in the second highest division. Landskrona BoIS has one national cup title, won in 1971-72. The club is affiliated with Skånes Fotbollförbund and plays its matches at Landskrona IP, which has a capacity of 11,000 spectators.[1] Landskrona BoIS, like most Swedish sports clubs, is a non-profit organization, run by a board which is elected annually by the club's members.[2]


Roots of football in Landskrona[edit]

IFK Landskrona, one of the teams that would merge to form BoIS, on the road to an away match during the earlier part of the 1910s.

One of the earliest sports clubs in Landskrona was GF Idrott [3] and the oldest one as of today, which was founded in 1882. Landskrona Velocipedklubb built in 1893 a simple kind of cykle track which included a grass field in the middle (which eventually would become the first home ground of Landskrona BoIS).[4] A year later football was introduced to a wider audience in Landskrona at an event hosted by GF Idrott at the pitch that the grass at Banan formed. The exhibition game between players of the football section of Malmö Velocipedklubb was attended by 700 spectators[5]

As a ban on totalizators was adopted in 1896, the interest of the cykling sport at tracks decreased and Landskrona Velocipedklubb whose economy already was poor, was a few years later forced to transfer their sports ground to Landskrona Town.[6] GF Idrott formed sections of several sports: Gymnatics (1882), Athletics (1894), Football (1902), Swimming (1906).[7] Whithin football GF Idrott soon become a leading club in Scania.[8]

But GF Idrott would not end up becoming Landskrona's primary football club, however, which can be connected to GF Idrott's focus on other disciplines, as well as their typical middle class appeal[9] in a town whose heavy industry was increasing [10]

Thus GF Idrott's football section declined during the 1910s.[11]:10 In contrast, Landskrona-based competitor Diana appealed to the community's socialist and sobriety movement subcultures.[11]:12[12] Diana also had a youth association with strict rules and the club had a formal leadership structure.[13] Not much is known about the other team, that together with Diana would merge into Landskrona BoIS, IFK Landskrona. Their main contribution to the merging seem to have been their players [14]

Foundation and pre-Allsvenskan era[edit]

These respective strengths led to a merger between Diana and IFK Landskrona on 7 February 1915, forming a new club, Landskrona BoIS, with IFK Landskrona's strong player roster complementing Diana's structural advantages.[15] The former chairman of Diana, Bror Nilsson, also became the first chairman of Landskrona BoIS, a position that he held until the end of the 1940s.[11]:12 Until the summer of 1924, the club's home pitch was Velocipedbanan, referred to as "Banan" locally.

In July 1918, BoIS played their first match abroad, against Copenhagen-based KFUM.[15]

The best player in Landskrona BoIS during the pre-Allsvenskan era was Albin Dahl, who became the club's first, and only, Olympic competitor, as he represented Sweden at the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerpen.[16] Albin played for the club between 1915 and 1921 before joining Helsingborgs IF together with his younger brother Harry "Hacke" Dahl in 1922. The transfer was fractious, as the clubs couldn't agree on the terms. Also, Albin's younger brother Harry followed his brother to the larger city of Helsingborg, located only 25 km north of Landskrona. However unlike Albin, Harry returned to BoIS after only one season. For the following Olympics, 1924 in Paris, both brothers was nominated to play for Sweden, however Harry's supervisor at Thulinverket refused to let him go.[17]

1924 brought the construction of Landskrona IP (Landskrona Idrottsplats), occasionally but never locally referred to as "Karlsunds IP" in reference to the beech forest located just west of the arena. The new arena enabled Landskrona BoIS to become one of twelve clubs participating in the inaugural season of Allsvenskan.[15] The inaugural Allsvenskan matchday concluded with Landskrona BoIS as the first ever Allsvenskan table leader, following a 1–0 away victory against IFK Norrköping.[18] (Until 1940, goal ratio was tiebreaker when separating teams with the same amount of points.) The club's first Allsvenskan home match at Landskrona IP was a 4-0 defeat against IFK Göteborg. Landskrona finished their first season in Allsvenskan in 6th place.[18]

"Hacke" Dahl continued to play for the club until the 1931–32 season. And when he left, he had scored an unmatched 334 goals in 410 matches, and he is still the club's best goalscorer of all time.[15][19]

BoIS was relegated for the first time following the 1932–33 season, the first season following the departure of Hacke, but the club was promoted back Allsvenskan the following season, and this time they had their first real manager in Nisse Svensson. He took Landskrona to the top of the league. The club won their first medal in the 1937–38 season, the Little Silver Medal as it is called in Sweden, awarded to the third-best team in the league. BoIS was only a small difference in goal ratio away from runners-up Helsingborg IF. The following 1938–39 season ended with Landskrona BoIS winning the bronze for their fourth place finish.[20] Knut "Buckla" Hansson was a notable player and striker during the late 1930s, who was in the squad that finished third in the 1937-38 Allsvenskan.[21] He later had to leave the club due to not being able to find a job in Landskrona.[22]

During the 18 seasons from the inaugural Allsvenskan in 1924–25 until the 1941–42 season, BoIS participated in 17 of those.


The 1940s were not as positive for the club as the 1930s. The team had no stability and was a yo-yo club for most of the 1940s. An exception to the otherwise mediocre performance came in the 1949 Svenska Cupen, the eighth edition of the tournament, in which Landskrona made their way to the final, defeating Mjölby, Helsingborgs IF, Råå IF and BK Kenty on the way. In the final, played on 24 July, they met AIK in front of 14,718 spectators at Råsunda Stadium in Solna. They lost 1-0, with the sole goal coming on a penalty for a handball.[23]

After the 1941/42 relegation, Landskrona BoIS first became a top team in their Division 2 group, and on two occasions they won their group, thereby winning promotion back to Allsvenskan, but on both occasions their stays were short, finishing dead last in both the 1944–45 and 1948–49 Allsvenskan seasons. The situation worsened in the 1951–52 season, with BoIS finishing ninth of ten teams in the second tier, and being relegated to the third tier. With Landskrona's other notable club, BK Landora, also relegated from Division 2, Landskrona now lacked any representation in the two top tiers of Swedish football. That situation would last only one year, however, as BoIS were promoted back to the second tier in 1953.

Notable players from this period include Sigvard "Kallinge" Pettersson who scored 297 goals[15] and Knut "Buckla" Hansson who had previously been in the squads that had captured two Allsvenskan medals.

Mid-1950's and 1960's[edit]

The club was relegated from Allsvenskan in 1949 and didn't return until the 1971 season, however Landskrona BoIS played qualification games for Allsvenskan in 1958, 1959, 1962 and 1968, all without success. In 1962, the qualification games took place through a four team group, with the clubs meeting each other only once . The third round was played at neutral grounds. When Landskrona BoIS game was finished, appeared to have secured promotion to Allsvenskan, but the other match, which had been delayed a few minutes, ended with a late goal, resulting in Stockholm's AIK securing an Allsvenskan spot instead.[24][page needed] During this period the main star player was Hasse "HP" Persson. In the early 1960s, Claes Cronqvist had some success with the club, but moved after the 1965 season to Djurgårdens IF in Stockholm. The 1965 season was also the last one for the club's main star, "HP".

The two following seasons ended without any notable success. But the club had for a while had their eyes on a tall and muscular youth, in the local small club BK Landora (who plays their home games at the B-pitch of Landskrona IP). A very talanted but heavy centre forward (the 4-3-3 uplining was in fashion during the end of the 1960s), his name was Sonny Johansson. He, just like Claes Cronqvist in 1966, was of interest for the Stockholm club Djurgårdens IF. Together with his father Oscar, they made the long journey up to the Swedish Capital. Everything looked like Sonny should put his signature on the transfer papers. But he didn't, stating "Dad would be so lonesome without me". After his return from the Capital, Sonny did instead sign for Landskrona BoIS, and he would become true to his new club for his entire career over 17 seasons.

After rival club Helsingborg IF (only 25 km separate the two towns, of wich Helsingborg is three times larger) was relegated from Allsvenskan in 1968 (for its first time ever), and after having no success in the qualification to Allsvenskan in 1969, the year 1970 became a very important one for Landskrona BoIS. To reach the promotion qualifiers, they had to win at home against Helsingborgs IF, and so they did, with a single goal scored by the Danish player Leif Carlsen. In front of more than 15.000 attenders. In the home game of the qualification for Allsvenskan again more than 15.000 attenders came to "IP", and BoIS after goals by Tommy "Gyxa" Gustavsson and Sonny Johansson, won 2-0 against Sandvikens IF, the away game was played in the very northern town Luleå, just as the winter began at the 66th latitude. BoIS managed a goalless draw as result. In the final game, at neutral Nya Ullevi in Gothenburgh, BoIS had to play Skövde AIK and at least another draw was required for the promotion. It began bad, as Skövde scored twice and almost a third, but by goals of Sonny Johansson and Leif Carlsen, Landskrona BoIS finally managed to becoming promoted back to Allsvenskan, after 21 seasons.[25] As a result of the success, the Danish player Leif Carlsen was forced to leave BoIS. Still by 1971 The Swedish Football Association didn't allow foregin players in Allsvenskan, not even a Danish one in an ex-Danish province (The Danish Capital Copenhagen is visible from the coastline in Landskrona).

In 1971, as the club finally had returned to Allsvenskan, Claes Cronqvist soon got homesick and left Djurgården, but he had went to the Stockholm club as a forward, but returned as a defender. BoIS stayed in Allsvenskan for ten seasons, which included two bronze medals (1975 and 1976) and a Swedish Cup victory in 1972. During the 1970s their former rivals from Helsingborg had no luck in their attempts to return to Allsvenskan, and the main rivals instead become Malmö FF. In 1974 BoIS managed to beat Malmö FF for the first time at Malmö Stadion. Worse was the 1975 home game against Malmö FF, as the guests won 0-5, the attendance that year was though as high as 17.600, the second best attendance at IP.

The club's ever main star Sonny Johansson contributed to this in a major way. Sonny played for the club from 1968 to 1984 and scored more than 300 goals. He was the highest-scoring player in Allsvenskan during the 1970s.[26] In 1971, Claes Cronqvist returned to the club and remained until the relegation in 1980. Unlike in the 1960s when he was a forward, he mostly played as defender during the 1970s. Cronqvist holds the record for being sent off more than any player in Allsvenskan, 6 times including 4 times while representing BoIS (1971–80) and twice during his time with Djurgården.[citation needed] In autumn of 1978, the club got into problems. The supposed manager for the years to come, Lennart "Liston" Söderberg changed his mind in a very late stage. And suddenly the club was without manager for the next season. After a hasty search, Ulf Schramm become manager. But already in the spring of 1979 players began to make severe complaints to the chairman and board, suggesting that Schramm was "incompetent". This soom led to the dismissal of Schramm.[27] At this time, whithin Swedish football, a dismissal of a manager in the middle of a season was a rare event. And Ulf Schramm eventually decided to process the club. Landskrona BoIS chairman of the time Claes Munck af Rosenschöld, who also was a solicitor, represented the club successfully during a trial that attracted some national attention. (Barristers are not used in Swedish courts) Schramm never appealed the matter.

1980's and early 1990's[edit]

The manager issue during the end of the 1970s and early 1980s led to a relegation from Allsvenskan, and ten consecutive seasons at the Swedish top level came to an end during the autumn of 1980. After having been close to reach qualification for Allsvenskan in 1983, the goal of a return to Allsvenskan ended the following season, as a relegation down to third tier of Swedish football followed 1984. This was the second time in the clubs history that Landskrona BoIS had to play third tier football. The first time was in 1952/53, and the club had then been promoted back after one season.

The difference between tier 2 and 3 was large in 1985. As the second tier comprised two leagues only (North and South) a total of 28 clubs, while third tier was divided into twelve regional leagues, and 144 clubs in all. In order to get promotion, the clubs had both to win its own regional league and this was followed by a home and away qualification against any of the other third tier league winners. (Out of 12 league winners 6 got promoted, the relegation from the higher league comprised the three last teams in both second tier leagues, North and South.)

An all time low home attendance was noted on a rainy day in June 1985, as little less than 400 people watched the club be defeated by Hittarp with a score of 1–2. In the regional league, after around half of the series, BoIS was excluded from the top by other clubs and local media. However, after winning more matches in combination with main contenders (Varbergs BoIS and Råå IF) began to loose their games, BoIS managed to win the league with several match days remaining. Now the away-home qualifying games against Linköpings FF should decide which club that would be promoted. Both games ended 1–1 and a penalty shoot-out became the final tiebreaker. BoIS forward, the well bearded Ole Jensen scored the winning penalty for the club [28] in front of a crowd of 6.000, and Landskrona BoIS was back at the second level within Swedish football. However, during the years 1986 until 1991 the club mostly had to fight to avoid a new relegation. In 1992 manager Conny Karlsson broke this trend, as the club defeated Henrik Larssons Helsingborg IF away 2–1 and a home crowd of above 10.000 watched the same game home at Landskrona IP, the best attendance since 1979, at that time. The following year Landskrona BoIS succeeded in becoming promoted to Allsvenskan for the first time in 14 years.


However the club chose not to prolong the contract with successful manager Conny Karlsson. Instead Danish Torben Storm became new manager. The club was relegated in the 1994 season, however the relegation didn't become definite until the last day of the season. Major financial troubles became evident during the later part of the season [29] A temporary board,led by Allan Karlsson, now got the task from the club members, to take over after the former chairman. The club needed to sell some of their profile players as Andreas Jakobsson and Greger Andrijevski among others,[30] and the club's financial troubles led to bad results in "Division 1 Södra", the second tier. For the second year in a row, the club was relegated. Unlike at the two previous occasions that Landskrona BoIS had been below the second tier, the return to elite football of some kind, after the 1996 season, seemed unlikely.


And now the temporary board brought the club's former legendary and celebrated striker Sonny "King Sune" Johansson back to the club as manager for a period of three years. And his first task, to bring the club back to the second tier of Swedish football was immediately accomplished during the 1997 season. And already the following season, 1998, "Sonny's boys" managed to become the runners up in their league, just one single point behind winners Kalmar FF. And only a lost home-away qualifier against Trelleborgs FF prevented a second promotion in row for the club.[31] During the 1999 season, a re-construction of Swedish second tier was imminent. Instead of two geographical leagues (labeled as Division 1 South and North), the national Superettan should begin in 2000. Hence it became imperative to finish the league at the upper half of the table,[32] as the other half of the teams would be relegated. Landskrona BoIS got this "semipromotion" after a memorable game against Kristianstads FF. After 88 minutes the score board stated BoIS 2–4 Kristianstad, but when the referee blew his pipe this had changed into BoIS 5–4 Kristianstad [33]

Since 2000[edit]

During its first ever season, Landskrona BoIS managed to profile themselves in Superettan, and defeated Malmö FF away, but the club had to wait one season longer for promotion. They eventually become successful in the 2001 Superettan, securing promotion to Allsvenskan after winning against Assyriska in the final game. This spell in the top flight lasted four seasons. Notable players during this period were amongst others Daniel Nannskog,[34] the "one armed bandit" Håkan Söderstjerna who was born with only one arm,[35] and Alexander Farnerud.[36]

Swedish footballer Henrik Larsson was appointed manager of the club in 2009, and remained for three years before his departure following the 2012 season.[37][38]

Crest and colours[edit]

For Landskrona's first season, they wore a black and white striped top with black shorts and white socks. They have worn the same home shirts ever since. The away shirt have traditionally always been a red top with black shorts, however there are a few exceptions. In 2003, the away shirt was in the colors of the Scanian flag; a bright yellow top with red shorts, and in the 2012 and 2013 season the club changed to a pink top with white shorts.[39]

Banan 1893 to 1924[edit]

Cykle race with totalizator from 1895, at the old sports venue in Landskrona. Its formal name was Velocipedbanan, but people called it simply "Banan". After totalizators got banned in 1896, the interest for football began to grow instead.

Landskrona BoIS previously played in the middle of simple kind of cycling track, locally referred to as "Banan" (English: the track or the lane), which was in use for cycling with a totalizator 1893-96. But as totalizators were prohibited in 1896, the interest for this type of cykling fell. In what year football first became introduced at "Banan" is unknown, but it was this ground that became the first home of Landskrona BoIS and its in 1915 merged predecessors IK Diana and IFK Landskrona.[40] Banan was located only a kilometre from the town's centre, but the new arena was built far outside the city limits as of 1923, the distance to the city centre is 3–4 km.

Eventually also football was played at "Banan". Photo from 1920.

IP since 1924[edit]

Since its construction in 1924 (the same year as the inaugural Allsvenskan season), Landskrona IP has been the home of Landskrona BoIS.[41] An opening ceremony was held on July 20, 1924, with Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf inaugurating the stadium in front of 6,000 spectators.[42] As a part of the inauguration, a friendly match was played between Landskrona BoIS and B 03 from Denmark. The Danish club won the match 3–2.

The first Allsvenskan match at Landskrona IP was on August 10, 1924, when BoIS played IFK Göteborg and lost 4-0.

The record attendance of 18,535 was set on October 18, 1959 in a qualifying match to Allsvenskan, against Degerfors IF.[42] Whithin Allsvenskan, highest attendance is 17,697 against Malmö FF in 1975.

In the autumn of 2013, the Landskrona BoIS board suggested that the stadium should switch from natural grass to artificial turf. This led to protests from supporter groups, both in the form of banners at matches and protest petitions on the internet.[43]


In recent seasons Landskrona have had the following average attendances:

The official supporter club is called Black & White, and was established 1993, before the upcoming season of Allsvenskan, where Landskrona made a comeback after several years in the lower divisions.[45] Since the building of Landskrona IP in 1924, the singing supporters have always stood on the part of IP called the "English Stand" (Swedish: Engelska Läktaren). The majority of the club's supporters are from the city of Landskrona, but they also draw support from nearby towns such as Svalöv, Eslöv, Kävlinge and Lund. A group of supporters in Stockholm also exists.[46]


Landskrona BoIS players at the home derby against Helsingborgs IF in 2003.

The main rival to Landskrona is Helsingborgs IF. The cities are geographically close to each other, and the supporters of the two teams hold a certain grudge, which dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. There is also a rivalry between Landskrona and Malmö FF, which reaches back to the 1930s. During the 1970s Malmö FF was definitely the only rival, as Helsingborg didn't participate in Allsvenskan.[47] The derby matches between the teams from Scania are called Skånederbyn.[48] In a poll from 2005, Landskrona supporters were asked which club was most important to beat during the season. A majority answered Helsingborgs IF (with 64.6% of the votes) followed by Malmö FF (26.9%).[49]

En dyrbar idrottslig anställning för Hacke. 1924 blev han nämligen uttagen i landslaget till OS i Paris. Hans chef, disponent Eskilsson, vägrade dock att ge honom ledigt och åka i väg.
