Norrby IF is a Swedish football club from Borås. The club was founded 27 April 1927.

Background[edit]

The club's best achievement was being promoted to Allsvenskan (top level of Swedish football), after winning the second division in 1955. In Allsvenskan the team only managed to win three games, and were relegated after just one season, and have never returned to top-level football.

Norrby IF's average attendance in the top division, established through the course of the sole 1956 season, is 9,971. This is the fifth-highest historical attendance of all clubs that have played in the Swedish top division. The club holds the record for the highest minimum attendance of all clubs that have participated in this division, at 6,378.[1]

The club is affiliated to the Västergötlands Fotbollförbund.[2]
