Landskrona BoIS is a Swedish professional football club located in Landskrona, Scania, which currently plays in Division 1 Södra, the third tier of football in Sweden. The club was formed on 7 February 1915 through the merger of two older Landskrona clubs, IFK Landskrona and Diana, Landskrona BoIS was one of the twelve teams in the inaugural Allsvenskan season in 1924–25. Since then, they have played 34 seasons in Allsvenskan and 51 seasons in the second highest division, Landskrona BoIS has won four medals in Allsvenskan, little silver in 1937–38 and bronze in 1938–39,1975 and 1976, as well as one national cup title, in 1971–72. The club is affiliated with Skånes Fotbollförbund and plays its matches at Landskrona IP, the club is of open foundational type, not owned by any individuals. One of the earliest sports clubs in Landskrona was GF Idrott and the oldest one as of today, Landskrona Velocipedklubb built in 1893 a simple kind of cycle track which included a grass field in the middle, which eventually would become the first home ground of Landskrona BoIS. A year later football was introduced to an audience in Landskrona at an event hosted by GF Idrott at the pitch that the grass at Banan formed. The exhibition game between players of the section of Malmö Velocipedklubb was attended by 700 spectators. GF Idrott formed sections of several sports, Gymnatics, Athletics, Football, GF Idrott soon become a leading football club in Scania. Thus, GF Idrotts football section declined during the 1910s, in contrast, Landskrona-based competitor Diana appealed to the communitys socialist and sobriety movement subcultures. Diana also had an association with strict rules and the club had a formal leadership structure. Not much is known about the team, IFK Landskrona. Their main contribution to the merging seem to have been their players, the former chairman of Diana, Bror Nilsson, also became the first chairman of Landskrona BoIS, a position that he held until the end of the 1940s. Until the summer of 1924, the home pitch was Velocipedbanan. In July 1918, BoIS played their first match abroad, against Copenhagen-based KFUM, Albin played for the club between 1915 and 1921 before joining Helsingborgs IF together with his younger brother Harry Dahl in 1922. The transfer was fractious, as the clubs couldnt agree on the terms, however, unlike Albin, Harry returned to BoIS after only one season. For the following Olympics,1924 in Paris, both brothers were nominated to play for Sweden, however, Harrys supervisor at Thulinverket refused to let him go. 1924 brought the construction of Landskrona IP, occasionally referred to as Karlsunds IP in reference to the beech forest located just west of the arena, the new arena enabled Landskrona BoIS to become one of twelve clubs participating in the inaugural season of Allsvenskan. The inaugural Allsvenskan matchday concluded with Landskrona BoIS as the first ever Allsvenskan table leader, the clubs first Allsvenskan home game at Landskrona IP was a 4–0 defeat against IFK Göteborg
