Linköpings FF (locally known as LFF) was the premier men's football team in Linköping, Sweden, playing in the Swedish second division.

Although Linköping is the fifth biggest city in the country, it continues to lack a first-class men's team. The town is prominent in both hockey (Linköpings HC) and women's football (Linköpings FC). The hockey and women's football teams cooperate intimately, sharing both directors and sponsorships, but so far men's football has been excluded from such cooperation.

The team played in red shirts. A lion formed its logo, as is the case with both the city and the other sports teams. The club had long aimed at securing a place in Superettan, the Swedish first division, but all endeavours failed. Linköpings FF played their home-games at Folkungavallen.

In 2009 the club were replaced by FK Linköping.
