Croats in Sweden (Swedish: Sverigekroater) are citizens and residents of Sweden who are of Croatian descent. As of 2017, they number approximately 28,000 individuals.[1] Croats mostly follow Catholicism, but a small minority that have been living in Sweden for generations have converted to Evangelicalism. They mostly live in Stockholm, the capital city, and in Malmö, in Rosengård district. The most successful football club of Croats of Sweden is NK Croatia Malmö, that played in 1988 the Swedish 2nd League, declared in 1989 with title "Best Immigrant Club of Europe"[citation needed], winner of Malmö Mästerskap four times (1988, 1989, 1991 and 2016). Zlatan Ibrahimović, a half-Croat, can be considered a Croat of Sweden, because his mother is a Croat.
