In brief: Another small provincial club that has found success in recent years, winning their first and to date only league title in 2008. Notably players from that title-winning side include Swedish international Rasmus Elm. However a big part of their recent success has been their policy of signing anyone with a Brazilian passport.
Expectations in 2013: The current squad is good enough to stay up, and last season they had an impressive record at home. However regularly being forced to sell their better players means they’re unlikely to progress much further than mid-table.
Players to watch: Midfielder Tobias Eriksson remains the team’s key player. Romarinho is the latest Brazilian to join the club, and having already spent the past few seasons at Gais, he is accustomed to Swedish football.
