The rivalry, however, has limits. When B36 Tórshavn published an official book in 1997, they used HB Tórshavn's book as the main source, as their original documents had been lost. When B36 was founded, they battled with rivals HB Tórshavn for the rights to the Gundadalur Stadium, although both teams used the venue, and played a number of derby matches there during that initial season.
B36 Tórshavn had a hard time by getting accepted by the main newspaper in the Faroe Islands, but after half a year B36 Tórshavn had achieved some good results, that resulted in that journalists had no other option but to accept B36 Tórshavn. Today, B36 Tórshavn is one of the biggest football clubs in the Faroe Islands.
