Malmö Fotbollförening, also known simply as Malmö FF, is a Swedish professional association football club based in Malmö. The club is affiliated with Skånes Fotbollförbund (The Scanian Football Association), and plays its home games at Swedbank Stadion.[1] Formed on 24 February 1910, Malmö FF have won seventeen national championship titles and fourteen national cup titles, making them the most successful club in Sweden in terms of total trophies won.[2] They have also won the highest Swedish league, Allsvenskan, on three occasions when the title of Swedish champions was not decided by the outcome of that league, adding up to a total of 20 league titles for the club.[3][A] The team competes in Allsvenskan as of the 2014 season; this is Malmö FF's 14th consecutive season in the top flight, and their 79th overall. The main rivals of the club are Helsingborgs IF, IFK Göteborg and, historically, IFK Malmö.[5] Since playing their first competitive match, more than 450 players have made a league appearance for the club, of whom 88 players have made at least 100 appearances; those players are listed here.

Defender Krister Kristensson is the player with the most league appearances in the club's history, having made 348 appearances between 1963 and 1978, scoring seven goals. Kristensson also played for the Sweden national football team, and ended his career with 38 international caps. Forward Hans Håkansson is the player who has scored the most goals in league matches for Malmö FF, with 163 goals in 192 matches; Bo Larsson holds the record of most goals scored in Allsvenskan with 119 goals in the league.[6][7]

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ The title of "Swedish Champions" has been awarded to the winner of four different competitions over the years. Between 1896 and 1925 the title was awarded to the winner of Svenska Mästerskapet, a stand-alone cup tournament. No club were given the title between 1926 and 1930 even though the first-tier league Allsvenskan was played. In 1931 the title was reinstated and awarded to the winner of Allsvenskan. Between 1982 and 1990 a play-off in cup format was held at the end of the league season to decide the champions. After the play-off format in 1991 and 1992 the title was decided by the winner of Mästerskapsserien, an additional league after the end of Allsvenskan. Since the 1993 season the title has once again been awarded to the winner of Allsvenskan.[4]
