Sweden - List of Champions


Note that from 1896 to 1925, the Swedish championship was decided in a cup format. However, since 1910 a Swedish league started playing; its winners are the official champions only since 1930/31. From 1982 to 1990, the Swedish championship was decided in a playoff between the top teams in the league.
