Alvik

Ground: Liko Arena

Visits: 1

Date: 9th June 2019

Match: Alvik - Öjebyn  5-2  (Division 4 Norrbotten Södra)

Attendance: 98

The match at Boden Arena finished around 15.50 and I thought that was the end of my adventure in northern Sweden. Leif had other ideas though and knowing there was a fixture at Liko Arena, Alvik v Öjebyn, at 16.00 he used back roads on the other side of the mighty Lule Älv (river) and as we arrived a few minutes late it was “only” 1-0 on the scoreboard. Alvik played in Division 2 Norrland a few years ago but are now playing in Division 4 Södra Norrbotten. In 2002 the women´s team of Alvik played in Allsvenskan and as I understand it those games were played at Liko Arena. Anyway, the sun was back out making this a very pleasant finale to my tour. At half-time visiting groundhoppers were invited to the speaker´s box for coffee and cookies. A very nice gesture by the club and something I really appreciated.

The match at Liko Arena this afternoon was eventful with plenty of goals. It was 2-0 at half-time and as the final whistle was blown the scoreboard said 5-2 to Alvik. I have now been to watching football at seven different grounds in Norrbotten and as always being in this part from Sweden in the summer is something I really enjoy. My flight back home departed Kallax airport in Luleå at 8pm and via Arlanda I then headed back towards the south of Sweden. I was back home at 01.31, tired but happy after a rewarding weekend. Finally, a big thank you to Leif for his help this weekend!
