Höganäs BK is a Swedish football club located in Höganäs in Skåne County.[1]

Höganäs BK in 1944 during their heyday.

Background[edit]

Höganäs Bollklubb were founded in 1913 and for many years before and after the Second World War played in Division 2, which at that time was the second tier of Swedish football. In the more recent decades Höganäs BK has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system.

The cradle of Scanian football is in Kullen, as the rector Lars Hallén took the sport to Scania from Zealand together with Danish miners, and Scania's representatives in the Swedish football championship therefore used to be Väsby FK during the first years.[2][3] Höganäs BK passed on this legacy.[4]

The club played between the seasons 1931/32 and 1960 for a full 28 seasons in the second highest division in football. In the 1952/53 season, they became second behind Kalmar FF who were promoted straight up to Allsvenskan.[5]

The home ground is the Sports Center in Lerberget since 2015.[6] At the old home ground Julivallen,[7] the record attendance is 5.283 against Halmstad BK in the 2nd highest league division (todays Superettan) October 25th 1953.

The club currently plays in Division 2 Västra Götaland which is the fourth tier of Swedish football.[8] [9]

The club plays in red shirts, blue shorts and red socks.
