HistoryEdit

 
Before a match with Älta IF in 2013

The club has gone through several reconstructions through the years. The original women's team was first founded in 1970 as a section under Hammarby IF. In 1999 the association was reorganized and all the underlying sections got separated into an umbrella organization.[4] The club Hammarby IF DFF was then founded, with the latter letters meaning damfotbollsförening. Before the start of the 2017 season, Hammarby IF DFF was merged with Hammarby Fotboll, which previously only included the men's division.[5][6]

Hammarby Fotboll Dam however considers that their founding year is 1970, and not 1999 nor 2016.

Hammarby won the top tier Damallsvenskan in 1985 and two national cups in 1994 and 1995.[7] In 1994 it was also the championship's runner-up. Previously, the team had been the cup's runner-up in its first three editions (1981–83).[8]

The team declined from 2005 and in 2011 it was relegated to First Division for the first time.[9] Before its relegation it was one of only two teams (the other one being FC Rosengård) to have played all 24 editions of the Damallsvenskan to date since the competition's foundation in 1988.

In modern years, Hammarby has been a typical yo-yo club. They finished the 2014 Elitettan season in 2nd place & gained promotion back to the Damallsvenskan. However, they enjoyed a short stint in the top tier getting relegated in 2015. In 2016, the club once again gained a promotion from the second tier.[10]
