 [hide*1 History


Hammarby IF Damfotbollförening was founded in 1970[2] as a section under Hammarby IF. In 1999 there was reorganization in the association and all the sections under Hammarby IF got separated. They are still linked through Hammarby IF Alliansförening[3] where the brand and the central register of members are handled.[4]

[2][3]Before a match with Älta IF in 2013

Hammarby DFF still considers that their founding year is 1970, and not 1999.

Hammarby won the 1985 national championship and two national cups in 1994 and 1995. In 1994 it was also the championship's runner-up. Previously, the team had been the cup's runner-up in its first three editions (1981–83).[5] Hammarby declined from 2005 and in 2011 it was relegated to First Division for the first time.[6] Before its relegation it was one of only two teams (the other one being LdB Malmö) to have played all 24 editions of the Damallsvenskan to date since the competition's foundation in 1988.[7]
