FOC Farsta

Ground: Farsta Idrottsplats

Visits: 1

Date: 3rd June 2023

Match: FOC Farsta - Sleipner  0-2  (Division 2 Södra Svealand)

Attendance: 120

The game at Kungsängens IP ended shortly before 15.00 and at 15.25 we were back at the train station in Kungsängen. 10 minutes later the commuter train departed and despite Farsta being in the other end of Stockholm it was, with a direct train route, quite easy to be there in time for kick-off between FOC Farsta and Sleipner. 17.30 is quite an unusual kick-off time for a Saturday but it gave me the possibility of doing a double today. FOC Farsta was founded in 1977 as a merger between IF Cobran and Farsta FF and the club play their home games at Farsta IP in southern Stockholm. Since the merger the club has been going up and down between division 2 (level 4) and division 3. At the moment the club is playing in division 2 Södra Svealand, one of six leagues at level four in Sweden. Most of the clubs in this league are from Stockholm but today´s opponents, IK Sleipner, are from Norrköping. In 1938 IK Sleipner won the Allsvenskan but last season they were playing in division 3.

There was free entrance at Farsta IP today and upon entering the open gates the ground looked kind of similar to Hagsätra IP, where I was yesterday. With the entrance being free there was a constant flow of people coming and leaving. Håkan estimated the attendance was around 120 and I agreed. One of those present was Lars Stjernkvist, for many years a leading politician for the Socialdemocrats. He is from Norrköping and proudly wore a Sleipner scarf today. He as well as other Sleipner fans had every reason to celebrate this lovely Saturday evening in Farsta. A 2-0 victory for Sleipner meaning the club from Norrköping is now top of the table. After the final whistle the three groundhoppers present made it to Farsta Centrum metro station and at Gullmarsplan I said goodbye to Stephen and Håkan. Stephen will go to AIK tomorrow but Håkan and I will meet up at IFK Stocksund.
