Karlskrona AIF

Ground: Västra Mark Idrottsplats

Visits: 1

Date: 13th August 2010

Match: Karlskrona AIF - Nybro  3-1  (Division 2 Östra Götaland)

Attendance: 210

 

The city of Karlskrona is situated the county of Blekinge. With the city´s strategic location by the Baltic Sea it has for centuries been a naval town and the Swedish navy has its headquartes in Karlskrona. It was of course in the Karlskrona archepelago the Soviet submarine U-137 stranded in 1981. Being in a military protection zone it was a major incident, probably the most famous cold war incident that took place in Sweden. After two very dramatic weeks the submarine could return home. A match in Division 2 Östra Götaland between Karlskrona AIF and Nybro was not as dramatic as the 1981 submarine incident but with four goals it was still an OK way to spend a Friday evening. Karlskrona AIF was founded in 1968 as a merger between three local clubs. In the 1980s the club spent a couple of years in the 2nd tier of Swedish football and the record attendance at Västra Mark (3 893) is from a 1981 match against Västra Frölunda. Being a ground used for athletics meeting there are floodlights at the ground, not that commom in Division 2. For this evening´s game 210 turned up and with the home team winning 3-1 most of them seemed happy as the final whistle went.
