Not only is it the only Swedish club to win a major European trophy it is the only club in the Nordic countries that has won one of the main UEFA competitions, having won the UEFA Cup in both 1982 and 1987. IFK have won 18 Swedish championship titles, second most in Swedish football after Malmö FF, and have the second most national cup titles with eight. The team has qualified for four group stages of the UEFA Champions League, and reached the semi-finals of the 1985–86 European Cup.
IFK are without a league title since 2007 meaning it is the longest period since they last won a league title and are currently not primed to make a run for it again in the next season or two as they are expected to finish 8th in the coming campaign.
So why have I picked IFK Goteborg?
Well I have only gone and got myself a new laptop which is a beast so I'm able to load up all the proper logos and the save should run like a dream as well so I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the full game now.
I have always enjoyed reading the stories of Hampus Silverholt where he transforms a league so I will be taking the former UEFA Cup winners and will be looking to transform Swedish football for the better and in the long run the national team as well. I will be looking to get the team back into the Champions League and trying to get to the final.
I will be starting the league season in May 2020 and have no experience of the Nordic leagues so this will be a brand new experience so lets get this party started.
