Founded 1916

Majornas IK are a Swedish sport club from Gothenburg founded in 1916.[1] The club is most famous for its handball team, who have been Swedish champions 7 times (1935, 1940, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945 and 1946).[2] Until 1964 they had played all seasons but one in the top flight, but have not played there since.[3] They currently play in Division 4, the 6th level.[4]

When the club started, it was mainly concentrated on association football, but the football section was discontinued in 2006 because of a lack of players.[5] In 1928, the club took part in the creation of the Gothenburg district federation for bandy.[6]
