Helsingborgs IF (alternative spelling Hälsingborgs IF between 1912 and 1971), most commonly referred to as HIF or Helsingborg, is a Swedish football club located in Helsingborg. The club, formed 4 June 1907, has won six national championship titles and three national cup titles. They are currently playing in the highest Swedish league, Allsvenskan. Helsingborg was the last Swedish team to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. They did so in the 2000-01 season, eliminating Inter in the third qualifying round winning 1-0 in Helsingborg and drawing 0-0 in Milan with Alvaro Recoba missing a penalty at 90th min.


2005: Failed year

In 2005, Helsingborg opened strong with four wins from their first five matches. But they ended at sixth place in Allsvenskan losing both derbys with rivals Malmö FF in the process.

2006: A successful Autumn

Helsingborg went through the spring of the 2006 Allsvenskan season very slowly. They once again lost the derby against Malmö FF and their manager Peter Swärdh was fired. Following the World Cup break however, Henrik Larsson arrived at Helsingborg along with a new manager, Stuart Baxter, and Helsingborg started to win matches. After victory in the derby and a 3-2 win at home against IFK Göteborg, Helsingborg finished in fourth place in the league and as winners in the Svenska Cupen after a 2–0 victory over Gefle IF in the cup final.
