Idrottsföreningen Sylvia are a Swedish third tier side based in the city of Norrköping (pronounced Norr-sher-peeeng for any non-Swedophiles reading this). Formed in 1922, they've been a consistantly OK kind of team, without ever really pressing on for further honours. The nearest they've ever got to top flight football was part of a two-year golden period in the late 1990s when they finished third in the second division on two occasions. Those near missed took their toll on morale, and these days they ply their trade back in the regionalised Division 1 Norra since their relegation back in 2007.
IFK Norrköping in the year of their last relegation when they switched their home game to their opponent's Idrottsparken ground, and had 11,114 pass through the turnstyles to give them a much-needed bumper payday. This was especially welcome as their own Bollspelaren ground can only hold 2000 at a push.
