HistoryEdit

The club was formed on 9 March 1903. The first years saw the club also compete in sports such as gymnastics and athletics.

In bandy, the club played in Allsvenskan for the first time during the 1975–76 season. The club was degraded and did not return until the 1982–83 season. The club was once again degraded, and was not upgraded until the 1986–87 season. Since then, the club has stayed in the top league, now called Elitserien. They have one of the more modern indoor arenas for bandy.

During the 2014 World Cup the team played the final, losing 1–4 against Västerås SK.[1]
