About Dalkurd FF
Dalkurd FF was founded in 2004 in Borlänge as a project to help a group of youths from diverse ethnic backgrounds to stay away from criminality. Since then the club has grown to become one of the largest and most exciting sports brands in the nordic region. During Dalkurds fifteen-year history the club has advanced from division six to play in Sweden’s top flight, Allsvenskan. An achievement that lacks parallel in Swedish football history. Dalkurd has since the club was founded grown to engage millions of people both within and outside of the Swedish borders. With the catchphrase “Happiness is success” (“Glädje är framgång”) the club continues its journey to become Sweden’s most modern football and E-sports club.
