IFK Uddevalla is a Swedish football club located in Uddevalla[1] and played two seasons in the highest Swedish league, Allsvenskan, in 1925–26 and 1926–27.

Background[edit]

Idrottsföreningen Kamraterna Uddevalla were formed on 14 May 1905 and is today the oldest active football club in Bohuslän. The club's first committee was made up of John Andrén (chairman), Viktor Karlsson (vice chairman), Awe Johansson (treasurer), Mikael Swanberg (secretary), Johan Johansson, Albert Johansson, Gustav Lidman, Axel Hagman, Karl Hansson, Albert Andersson and Hans Lundgren . Originally IFK Uddevalla had many sections, but football has always been the dominant sport. Wrestling, swimming, skiing, athletics, bandy, handball, hockey and figure skating over the years had their own sections within the club but today IFK Uddevalla is only a football club.[2]

Oskar Andersson took over the gavel in 1906 and under his leadership IFK Uddevalla played two seasons in the Allsvenskan in the 1920s. He was at that time chairman of Bohuslän-Dals Fotbollförbund, Bohuslän-Dals Idrottsförbund, and also a member of the Swedish Football Association. On behalf of the club, Oskar Andersson also initiated the development of the Rimnersvallen, which was inaugurated in 1923. His chairmanship lasted from 1906 to 1942.[3]

Since their foundation IFK Uddevalla has participated mainly in the upper and middle divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 2 Norra Götaland which is the fourth tier of Swedish football. They played two seasons in the highest Swedish league, Allsvenskan, in 1925–26 and 1926–27. IFK Uddevalla have not returned since, although they played a few seasons in the second highest league in the early 1990s. They play their home matches at the Kamratgården in Uddevalla.[4]

IFK Uddevalla are affiliated to Bohusläns Fotbollförbund.[5]
