Väsby IK is a Swedish sports club based in the Stockholm suburb of Upplands Väsby, with an athletics department, a football department and a hockey department. Väsby Hockey plays in Hockeyettan, the third tier of Swedish hockey. The clubs association football department merged with FC Café Opera United in 2005 to form AFC United. In 2013, after AFC United relocated to Solna, Väsby IK once again formed their own fotball department.

At the end of the 1986–87 season, Väsby achieved one of the greatest upsets in the history of Swedish hockey by achieving promotion to the top division of Swedish ice hockey.[1] The team's time in the top league would be short however, as the team finished last in the first round of the following year's Elitserien season and were sent down to the Allsvenskan spring series after Christmas, where they failed to re-qualify for the following Elitserien season and were ultimately relegated to the second tier league.
