History[edit]

Start[edit]

During the 1960s, a women's team representing Djurgårdens IF under the lead of Gösta Sandberg met Öxabäcks IF and won 2–1.[3] In 1984 the team was promoted to Damallsvenskan for the first time.[3]

In 1988, Djurgården reached Damallsvenskan for the first time by finishing first in Division 1 Norra.[4] In the 1989 season, Djurgården finished fourth in Damallsvenskan and played play-off semifinals, which they lost on away goals (1–1) to Jitex BK.[4]

After finishing second in the 1991 Damallsvenskan, Djurgården lost again to Jitex BK in the semi-finals of the play-off.[5] The season after, Djurgården got relegated after finishing 11th in Damallsvenskan.[5] Djurgården again won promotion to Damallsvenskan in the 1996 season.[5]

Djurgården/Älvsjö merger[edit]

In 2003, Djurgårdens IF and five-time Swedish champions Älvsjö AIK merged to form Djurgården/Älvsjö, where Djurgården owned 51 percent and Älvsjö AIK 49 percent.[6] The new team consisted of a mix of Djurgården and Älvsjö players, including Swedish footballers Victoria Svensson, Elin Flyborg, Linda Fagerström, Ulrika Björn, and Jane Törnqvist and coached by Thomas Dennerby.[7]

Djurgården/Älvsjö won Damallsvenskan in their first year, and again in 2004.[8] During the 2004–05 season, the team were runners up in the UEFA Women's Cup after having lost the final against 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam[9]

From the 2007 season, the team competed as Djurgårdens IF.[3] In 2007, the team signed German goalkeeper Nadine Angerer to replace their retiring keeper Bente Nordby.[10]
