List of Malmö FF records and statistics

An association football team poses for a formative black-and-white photograph. A row of five men are kneeling on the pitch, all wearing light-coloured shirts and white shorts apart from the player in the centre, who wears black. In front of him is a large trophy shield. Behind the kneeling row stand six more men, all wearing the same light-coloured shirts. The players are noticeably tired; large sweat stains are visible on their shirts. A stand of a stadium can be seen in the background.

A row of seven men sits on a bench, all wearing light-coloured shirts and white shorts apart from the player in the centre, who wears black. A football rests on the ground between his feet. Behind the seated row stand seven more men, all but one of whom are wearing the same light-coloured shirts. The exception is a gentleman standing at the end of the row on the viewer's right, who wears a dark double-breasted suit, tie and wide-brimmed fedora hat. All of those present have their arms folded apart from the man in the suit, whose hands are behind his back. In the background a set of goalposts can be seen.

FootnotesEdit

  1. ^ a b The title of "Swedish Champions" has been awarded to the winner of four different competitions over the years. Between 1896 and 1925 the title was awarded to the winner of Svenska Mästerskapet, a stand-alone cup tournament. No club were given the title between 1926 and 1930 even though the first-tier league Allsvenskan was played. In 1931 the title was reinstated and awarded to the winner of Allsvenskan. Between 1982 and 1990 a play-off in cup format was held at the end of the league season to decide the champions. After the play-off format in 1991 and 1992 the title was decided by the winner of Mästerskapsserien, an additional league after the end of Allsvenskan. Since the 1993 season the title has once again been awarded to the winner of Allsvenskan.[5]
