Huddinge IF is a Swedish football club located in Huddinge, a municipality in Stockholm County in east central Sweden.[1]

Background[edit]

Huddinge Idrottsförening is the municipality's oldest sports club. Inspired by the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, Otto Hellkvist founded the club in the same year. For several decades the club had many sections, including bandy, table tennis, cycling, athletics and skiing. Today Huddinge IF is purely a football club and is one of Stockholm's largest with about 1,200 active members and 70 teams. Successful clubs in Huddinge that owe their origins as sections within Huddinge IF before breaking away from the parent club include Huddinge IK (ice-hockey) and Huddinge BT (tennis).[2]

Since their foundation Huddinge IF has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 1 Norra which is the Third tier of Swedish football. They play their home matches at the Källbrinks IP in Huddinge.[3]

Huddinge IF are affiliated to the Stockholms Fotbollförbund.[4]
