Växjö BK is a Swedish football club located in Växjö in Kronoberg County.[1]

Background[edit]

Växjö Bollklubb was formed on 20 January 1924 at a meeting at the Roséns café. Fotbollsföreningen Tigrarna had the previous year applied to join the Swedish Football Association but had been turned down because there was already a team from Stockholm with the same name. Therefore, it was decided that the club would be called Växjö BK.[2] The club currently has around 1,700 members including an active youth section

Since their foundation Växjö BK has participated mainly in the middle divisions of the Swedish football league system.The club reached its peak way back in 1936-37 when they played one season in Division 2 Södra, which at that time was the second tier of Swedish football.[3] They play their home matches at the Sportfältet in Växjö.[4]

Växjö BK are affiliated to Smålands Fotbollförbund.[5]
