Ground: Motala Idrottspark
Date: 4th July 2009
Match: Motala AIF - Östers IF 1-3 (Division 1 Södra)
Motala is nicely situated by Sweden´s second biggest lake, Vättern. The local football club, Motala AIF, play at Motala Idrottspark which has a wooden main stand with a capacity of 600. The far side is a covered wooden terrace. With the athletics track only having six tracks you weren´t too far away from the pitch and it was actually possible for the Öster fans to create some sort of an atmosphere inside the ground.
After promotion back in 2007 this is Motala´s second season in Division 1 and before today´s match Motala were second in the table. Öster has so far this season not lived up to everyone´s expectations and are currently in the bottom half of the table. The visitors however played like a new side today and took a deserved 3-1 victory to the delight of the 100 or so fans who had travelled to Motala from Växjö.
