For the defunct top Swedish ice hockey league, see Svenska Serien (ice hockey).

Svenska Serien (literally, "The Swedish Series", also Svenska Fotbollserien, "The Swedish Football Series") was the highest league in Swedish football, and was played 1910–1917, 1920–1921 and 1922–1924. It was then replaced by the current-day league Allsvenskan. Despite being the highest league, the winner of Svenska Serien did not become Swedish Champions; instead, that title was awarded to the winner of the cup tournament Svenska Mästerskapet between 1896 and 1925.
