Husqvarna

Ground: Vapenvallen

Date: 28th June 2009

Match: Husqvarna FF - Västra Frölunda  2-2  (Division 1 Södra)

Attendance: 354

 

Husqvarna FF was founded in 1987 as a merger between Husqvarna IF och Husqvarna Södra IS. They play their matches at Vapenvallen (Weapon Stadium) in the city of Huskvarna. The main stand is very nice and is dug into the grass bank on the south side of the ground, see pictures below. If you wonder why the ground is called Vapenvallen it is because a royal rifle manufacturer was established in Huskvarna in 1680 and lasted until 1757, when it was sold to private owners. It continued to supply the Swedish and Norwegian armies with rifles (for example, in 1870 some 10,000 rifles were finished), but the company later switched over to the production of sewing machines and bicycles. Today, it is known as Husqvarna (it never changed the old spelling), an internationally known company with a variety of products.

 

Today´s match against Västra Frölunda was quite weird. Husqvarna was 2-0 up at half-time and in total control of the game. When they had an early penalty in the second half most of the crowd was certain it was Game Over. The penalty was saved however and after two defensive errors by Husqvarna Västra Frölunda managed to score two goals and the game finished 2-2.
