Representitive players from the all clubs in Sweden come together to form the Swedish Elks!

Already in 1997, the Elks made their first appearance, when they met Denmark's Vikings in Helsingborg. It took a good seven years for the next Elks match when the Elks defeated the touring North London Lions by 11 points in Malmö in 2004.

2010_elks_logo.jpgSince then, the Elks make regular appearances on the intenational footy scene. In 2005, Denmark was played in an amazing game at Farum, Denmark, with the game played out as a draw. During the following two years, the Elks competed with Denmark and Germany in the Tri-Nations Cup with matches played in all three countries.

The Swedish national team jumperSweden also competed in the 2005 EU Cup in London, where they were unlucky to lose to Belgium in the final. However, they were able to go one step better in the 2007 EU Cup, where they defeated Germany in the final.

Strong growth in the Swedish league has seen the Elks competing even in the AFL International Cup (IC) in Australia. In their first appearance in 2008, the team did a tremendous effort and came 12th out of 16 competing teams, just one place behind Denmark. In 2011, the Elks could improve their position with a narrow win over Japan in their last game and gave them eleventh spot on the Division one ladder.

Their biggest success so far, was the bronze medal in the European Championships in 2010 on home soil, where the Elks beat Great Britain in a hard fought and tremendous match. Last year, the Elks also made it to the bronze medal final, but were beaten by neighboring rival Denmark in Dublin. Currently, the Swedish Elks prepare for their third return to Australia for the IC14.

For further information about the Swedish Elks, contact the coach Daniel McClaer or the board of AFL Sweden.

Sweden vs Denmark friendly April 26, 2014 The Swedish Elks ran into a dominant and very experienced Denmark Viking s on Saturday, when they were out-classed 3. 2 (22) to 26. 22 (178), on what was a perfect spring day for footy in Malmö.

In the first of two training matches for the Elks before the 2014 International Cup in Melbourne, the goal for the day was to get to know each other with over half of the team making their national team debut.

It was clear to see that the young Swedish team is going through a rebuilding stage, as a very well organised Danish side took complete control of the match in the second quarter and ran away with the win.

Head coach of the national team Daniel McClaer explains, "We have conducted a rigorous selection process for the Elks based on several factors, such as, the combined trial weekend earlier this month, form at club level, squad balance, training performance and Elks playing history."

AFL Sweden president Jörg Pareigis continues, "We want to give this event the proper framing and we had great feedback when we announced the EC2010 playing squad in this format."

With the enthusiasm and experience of the two new team managers this should be one video to look out for.
