Welcome to Malmö FF - Sweden's biggest football club.
Malmö FF was founded in 1910. In 1932 we played for the first time in the highest division in Sweden and in 1944 we won our first national title. Through the years, we have won 16 Swedish Championship, 14 Swedish Cups. We are first in the marathon table (number of overall victories among all clubs historically) and with only three single season exceptions, have been in the highest division since we first were promoted.
Malmö FF is a members club where every year the membership votes for who should lead the club. The longest serving such president and the one who led the club up to the elite division was Eric Persson, who led the club from 1933 to 1974, except for the years 1934 and 1936. Eric Persson was the initiator of the Intertoto Cup which was played in 1961 - 2008 and we are also the Swedish club with the most success in the tournament. His successor, Hans Cavalli-Björkman, seized on that legacy and led the club to success in Europe and was also the president in charge as MFF took the step to having full-time professional footballers.

Running our own stadion
Our current president is Håkan Jeppsson and he took office in 2010. Under his leadership, MFF has strengthend ist position as the financially strongest club in Sweden and also the only club to run its own stadium. MFF's president traditionally has a long term of office which guarantees the continuity that has given us so much success.
First Swedish club in Cup final
1979 was an important year in MFF's history, the year when we were the first and so far the only Swedish team to reach the final of the European Cup (now Champions League). On the way to the final we defeated gigants of the time such as Monaco, Dynamo Kiev, Wisla Krakow and Austria Vienna. The final on May 31st was against Nottingham Forest in the Olympic Stadium in Munich. The match ended 0 - 1 but is still celebrated as one of our greatest days when we were missing a number of key players and included two young 19-year-olds in the side.
MFF has had many successful coaches. Among the internationally renowned coaches were Spaniard Antonio Duran (1964-71), the Englishmen Bob Houghton (1974-80) and Roy Hodgson (1984-89). The latter managed to top the Championship every one of those years but due to a temporary play-off system won the title outright in only two of those years. Another famous name to coach at MFF is the former assistant manager to the England national team, Tord Grip (1983-84).
In 1990 MFF were the first club in Sweden to introduce professional footballers. In 2001 we beat the Swedish transfer record when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was sold to Ajax for 81 million. Other players with an internationally successful career who have represented MFF are: Bosse Larsson, Stefan Schwarz, Jonas Thern, Mats Magnusson, Martin Dahlin, Patrik Andersson, Daniel Andersson (now back at the club and team captain), Afonso Alves, Markus Rosenberg and Ola Toivonen. Before them we had many players who primarily moved to Italy, including Calle Palmér, Nils-Åke Sandell and Börje Tapper.
A stadium for the future
Swedbank Stadion opened in 2009 and is our new home. As the first club in Sweden to own our arena and with this as a strong sporting and economic basis, we aim towards new successes in the future. Swedbank Stadion has three two-tiered all-seater stands and one standing terrace to provide the best possible football setting. The capacity is 18000 seated and 6000 standing. For international matches it can be converted to a fully seated capacity of 21000. The summer of 2009 sees the UEFA U-21 Championship staged in Sweden with the final played at Swedbank Stadion.
See you in Europe!
