    Info about transfers in Sweden can be found here:

    Nyförvärv = Signed Players
    Lämnar = Leaving

    A pretty sad year for Jitex BK, they have basically lost all their players, mostly because bad economy, since they had to play most of last season without a homeground, since theirs was under renovation. During that time they had to share ground with Göteborg FC, and that basically meant lost sponsor opportunities, profits from selling food and drinks. They asked their hometown for financial aid (Mölndal, suburb to Göteborg), since Mölndal miscalculated the time frame, and the renovations did get pushed, but with no luck.

    Pretty hard, since Mölndal had promised them they should have a pitch before last season opened. At the same time, the town of Malmö gave financial aid to LdB Malmö (FC Rosengård), though their problems were of their own doing for the most part.

    Jitex BK might not be as renowned outside Sweden, but has fostered many of Swedens greatest players, like Sundhage, Victoria Svensson etc. Don’t really have the figures, but the club should be high on the list with most Damallsvenskan titles won, though it might have been a while since last 😀

      Thanks Seb, will check it out. And thank you for the help with Swedish 🙂

      It is a shame to here the setbacks Jitex have been experiencing, I hope it gets sorted out as soon as possible because the lack of sponsor opportunities and profit loss will take its toll.

      I guess you are right, Jitex are not as renowned outside of Sweden, but they do have a great history. I think it will be a good idea to explore all the clubs in more detail at some stage.
