Ground: Landvetter Idrottsplats

Visits: 1

Date: 16th June 2023

Match: Landvetter - Västra Frölunda  1-2  (Division 2 Västra Götaland)

Attendance: 300

Earlier in the week my summer holidays had started and to get a nice start to the summer I had planned a tour. I would go to four games and re-complete two leagues over the weekend. First up was a visit to Landvetter IP for Landvetter IS v Västra Frölunda in Division 2 Västra Götaland. Landvetter is maybe most famous for being the location of the airport in Gothenburg. When I looked for hotels in Gothenburg they were all ridiculously expensive and the reason was the Metallica concert at Ullevi. With Landvetter being east of the city I looked for hotels in that direction and found one in Borås. I set off shortly before noon and at 3pm I arrived in Borås. It was yet another really warm day and except for an early dinner at a nearby restaurant I stayed in my room until it was time to leave for the game. It was supposed to take around 35 minutes from my hotel to the ground but roadworks meant it took 65 minutes. Thankfully I always set off early and I made it to the ground in time for kick-off.

Landvetter IP has two artificial pitches and the one used for league games has a wooden stand in the east side. For the cup game against IFK Göteborg a few years ago temporary stands were erected on the far side and that day a record crowd of 4,220 was recorded that evening. Tonight around 300 showed up and for this level that is a decent number. The visitors from Västra Frölunda even brought a few vocal fans and that is a bit unusual for division 2. Landvetter made it 1-0 in the 7th minute but two minutes later it was 1-1. In the 2nd half Västra Frölunda had gradually more of the possession and in the 83rd minutes they scored a cracking goal to make it, 1-2. A few minutes later both teams had a player sent off and in stoppage time another Landvetter player saw red. 9 against 10 on the pitch but 1-2 on the scoreboard. Landvetter remain in 2nd place and Västra Frölunda are now 4th in the tight table. More importantly the visit to Landvetter IP meant I have now re-completed this league!

At this game I was joined by fellow groundhopper Håkan and having introduced him to the Futbology app he has been (and will be for a while) busy with adding games. He started in the 70s so plenty of work for him! I was back at my hotel in Borås by 9.30 pm and once in bed I quickly fell asleep.
