Varbergs BoIS

Ground: Påskbergsvallen

Visits: 2 (1 for a Varbergs BoIS match)

Date: 7th May 2011

Match: Varbergs BoIS - Rosengård  2-1  (Division 1 Södra)

Attendance: 1 285


The city of Varberg is situated on the Swedish west coast, just south of Gothenburg, and is a town that welcomes a lot of tourists during the summer months. In recent years several "big" foreign clubs (including Barcelona) have used Varberg as part of their pre-season. Historically the most successful in Varberg has been Varbergs GIF but nowdays it is Varbergs BoIS who are the main team in the town. Last year Varbergs BoIS won Division 2 meaning they are now, for the first time ever, playing in Division 1 South. With 7 points in their opening three matches Varberg were actually top of the table before today´s match against Rosengård.


Varberg is 190 km from where I live and after a very early round of golf I set off for Varberg shortly after lunch. I arrived at Påskbergsvallen with an hour to go before kick-off. Påskbergsvallen is a typical Swedish ground for this level. A seated main stand on one side and an open terrace on the other. There are approximately 1 200 covered plastic seats in the West Stand making this a decent stand for watching football. Since it was a warm day there was a lot of fans prefering to sit/stand/lie on the far side though. They had a nice afternoon in the sun, espacially with the home team winning by 2-1. For the first time ever I also witnessed a streaker. In the second half a nude man ran across the pitch waving at his friends on the far side. Too much beer for some today...
