Mariestads BK is a Swedish football club located in Mariestad, currently playing in Division 5 Västergötland Norra.[1]

Background[edit]

Mariestads Bollklubb was formed in July 1929 by Alla Lindqvist. The club name is often abbreviated as MBK or nicknamed "Bollis". The club has a loyal fan base, with the most famous grouping being known as Bollis Trogna (BT) – which translates as "Loyal Bollis".

Since their foundation Mariestads BK has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 5 Västergötland Norra which is the seventh tier of Swedish football.[2] They play their home matches at the Vänershofs IP in Mariestad.[3]

Mariestads BK are affiliated to Västergötlands Fotbollförbund.[4] The other main club in the town is IFK Mariestad and the rivalry is enormous. The activity and support in the Mariestads BK fan base has later diminished due to an increased number of police arrests and charges.
