This year I thought I’d run the information on this event through this site. Here’s organiser Kim Hedwall’s prospectus.
WELCOME to the 14th Annual SWEDISH GROUNDHOP
FRIDAY JUNE 5th to SUNDAY JUNE 7th 2020
Since 2007 we’ve been seeking out the undiscovered gems of the Swedish game. After three successful hops in southern Sweden,
We’re back in the Stockholm area this year and visit the interesting and beautiful grounds in and around the capital of Sweden!
This time there is 5 (hopefully 6) Swedish games to enjoy and also plenty of time to sight see and socialise!
As ever the itinerary and fixtures are subject to change.
Collection from Arlanda airport, North of Stockholm and transport to our hotel close to Stockholm.
We could be in for a surprise before the evening game, and we start the hop with ….
HAMMARBY TFF vs. FITTJA IF (Div. 4) @ Hammarby IP
Transport back to hotel and some free time.
Last year’s hop saw some pretty grounds and this year will be no different. Today’s games begin in Grillby and a visit to beautiful Skogsvallen with stunning surroundings…
IK NORDIA vs. UPPSALA INTER FC (Div. 6) @ Skogsvallen
Then we go on a bit further out in the country to Enköping and one of the most beautiful grounds in Sweden.
ENKÖPINGS IS FK vs. STOCKHOLM INTERNATIONALE (Div. 2) @ Enavallen
Back to Stockholm for some free time, plenty of pubs and bars to visit!
We’re working hard on getting a third game and if we are lucky, that’s a bonus.
