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.
