Kulladal

Ground: Kulladals Idrottsplats

Visits: 1

Date: 30th July 2016

Match: Kulladal - Hanaskog  1-1  (Division 3 Södra Götaland)

Attendance: 100

 

I arrived back home from Croatia on Monday evening and after that trip I had nothing planned. Going through my options for the coming weekend I decided it was time to visit another ground in Division 3 Södra Götaland, the most southern of the 12 Division 3-leagues in Sweden. Kulladal is a part of southern Malmö and is most famous for being the place where former Swedish Prime Minister Per Albin Hansson was born. Kulladals IP, where Kulladals FF play, is actually situated on Per Albin Hansson väg 102. When it comes to football the most famous player is Stefan Schwarz who played a a few years as a youth player for Kulladal. Stefan Schwarz won the Swedish league title with Malmö FF in 1988 but his biggest achievement must be the bronze medal from the 1994 World Cup. Aside from Malmö FF Stefan Schwarz played for clubs like Benfica, Arsenal, Valencia, Fiorentina and Sunderland. In today´s team I doubt there are many who will make it to the top but you never know. Kulladal won promotion from Division 4 at the end of last season and are currently 8th in the table. With only two points from 12 games Hanaskog are bottom of the table and for Kulladal this is a game they should win.

 

It takes around 70 minutes for me to drive to Kulladal and an hour before kick-off I parked my car outside the car. The weather forecast said changeable weather with sunshine and rain, maybe even thunder. As I arrived the weather was quite nice and I could take a few pictures of the ground without being rained on. Kulladals IP is quite a basic ground but with a grass pitch and no running tracks it is still a decent ground for this level in Malmö. There are a few steps of terracing in the north side of the ground but unfortunately there is no roof protecting fans from bad weather. In the first half it rain for about 15 minutes but with the rain being light the trees in the south side was enough cover. From under the trees I could watch Hanaskog taking the lead. A few minutes later Kulladal were awarded a penalty and after an even first half it was 1-1 at half-time. After only 10 minutes or so in the second half it started to rain heavily and standing under a tree was not enough cover, I got soaked! The pitch could not handle all the rain and at times conditions were farcical. Quite an entertaining game though as both sides tried their best to get the winning goal. Kulladal had the best chances towards the end but the game ended 1-1. Back in my car I could hear thunder but thankfully the game was over by now!
