Knattspyrnufélag Akureyrar, abbreviated to KA, is a football club based in Akureyri in the north of Iceland.

Sports club[edit]

The club offers other sports apart from football, including judo and handball. Its main rival is another sports club in Akureyri named Þór ("Thor"). KA and Þór merged[clarification needed] their handball clubs to Akureyri handboltafélag before the 2006–2007 handball season in Iceland.

Football[edit]

They have once been the Icelandic champions, in 1989 after a tough fight against FH (Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar). FH were in the lead until their final match, against already relegated team Fylkir. FH lost and KA obtained the title for the first time in their history.

KA currently play at Akureyrarvöllur and their training ground at KA-Heimilið.
