Ulricehamns IFK is a Swedish football club located in Ulricehamn in Ulricehamn Municipality, Västra Götaland County.[1]

Background[edit]

Ulricehamns IFK is a football club based in Ulricehamn that was formed in 1992 through the merger of the football section of Ulricehamns IF and IFK Ulricehamn. Both clubs had a rich football history with UIF being over 80 years old and IFK Ulricehamn over 50 years old. The new club title created considerable debate and the choice of Ulricehamns Idrottsförening Kamraterna (UIFK) enabled both parties to see their own club name in the new title. The new club's colours of blue and black is a compromise from the merger. The amalgamation of 2 historic clubs represents a concerted attempt to place Ulricehamn on the Swedish football map by laying a solid foundation to progress to Division 2.[2]

Since their foundation Ulricehamns IFK has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 3 Sydvästra Götaland which is the fifth tier of Swedish football.[3] They play their home matches at Lassalyckans IP in Ulricehamn.[4]

Ulricehamns IFK are affiliated to the Västergötlands Fotbollförbund.[5]
