The club has altogether played 13 seasons in the premier division, in 1960 IFK finished second. In 1961 they made it to the quarterfinals in the European Cup (losing to Rapid Vienna). At home IFK plays in yellow jerseys, white shorts and white socks. Before the 2009 season, the club switched their home stadium from Malmö IP to Malmö Stadion. IFK Malmö is often colloquially called di gule (The yellow ones) in reference to their team colours. Historically the clubs main rivals are Malmö FF although this rivalry has been toned down since the clubs have not played in the same division for more than 50 years.

In the 1958 World Cup, the Argentina national football team worn the IFK Malmö's home shirt, because Germany would not agree to use its alternative colours.[1]
