Lunds BK is a football club from Lund, Sweden founded in 1919. The club currently plays in Division 1 Södra and at the same time also plays in the Tipselit.

Despite their relative success Lunds BK has never competed in the Allsvenskan or Superettan, but has played nine seasons in the second highest level. The club is well known for their youth football programme and has managed numerous players such as Martin Dahlin[1] and Roger Ljung[2] who have progressed to major clubs.


The team was first formed in 1919 when the Lund GIF's juniors rebelled against their coach because they were not getting any playing time. The entire junior squad along with some players from IFK Lund were without club affiliation.

Two juniors, Gustav 'Gast' Persson and Bertil Larsson requested Berndt Paulsson ito form the new club. Gunnar Bjorn Hammar became the chairman and the rest of the board consisted of junior players.

In the year that they were formed the team only played one match which they won 4–1 with an attendance of 165 people. Almkvist scored 2 goals and thus became that year's leading scorer.

From 1919–1923, the club did not play league football. During this time, the club played 95 matches.

In 1923 Nils Nilsson (Pegen) was the top scorer with 20 goals in 26 matches. In 1924, LBK played 34 matches of which they won 15 games and lost 11.

The next year the club competed in a new league called Sydsvenskan. Since then the club has continued to progress despite the fact that their league position has fluctuated over the years. Over the last 20 years the club has mainly competed in Division 2 Södra Götaland but they have had 3 seasons in Division 1 Södra.

The club is affiliated to the Skånes Fotbollförbund.[3]
