Arboga Södra IF is a Swedish football club located in Arboga in Västmanland County.[1]


Arboga Södra Idrottsföreningen were formed in May 1933 by sports enthusiasts in Södra Skogen in Arboga. A major project undertaken was the development of Ekbacken IP in 1967 and the restoration of the "Södragården" as a clubhouse. The municipality donated the building and construction materials to the club who themselves undertook the extensive renovation of the dilapidated building. The changing pavilion was built in 1975–76 and later extended with two dressing rooms, a meeting room and a kiosk.[2]

Since their foundation Arboga Södra IF has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 3 Västra Svealand which is the fifth tier of Swedish football.[3] They play their home matches at the Ekbackens IP in Arboga.[4]
