Supporters and rivalries

It has been a long time since the first HIFK-players put on their jerseys and ran onto Kaisaniemi pitch in May of 1908. And a lot has happened since then. Star Chested, nickname almost as old as Club, has played an essential part in Finnish football history, and despite a lot of setbacks, Club is still alive and doing well. The first Finnish Championships were held in the year of 1908, with IFK include. The first year ended well and the club first medal was fact. A few years later, in 1912, club received its first silver-medal. That year, the Olympics were held in Stockholm. Finland, with a total of six HIFK-players, ended up in fourth place. Even though HIFK played in the highest division from its inception, it took until year of 1930 before the club was to be crowned Champions of Finland. Before that year, the Championship had been decided through the Cup system, which never yielded any benefit for HIFK. New system, round robin, suit Star Chested lot more. In autumn of 1937, IFK were celebrating their fourth Championship and tenth straight medal. HIFK kept its position as Finnish football elite after the War years, with the club winning yet another Championship year of 1947. But soon after that, they found themselves in the second highest division, where they would spend most part of their 50s, trying to rebuild their team and come back stronger. Historically, HIFK had been a team for Swedish-speakers of Helsinki, by this time it was seeing more and more Finnish-speakers among its teams-and youth teams were flourishing. The Reds won their seventh Finnish Championship in 1961. Previous autumn Club had hosted various international games, incl. IFK Malmo in the Europa Cup at Helsinki Olympic Stadium. In the beginning of 70s, after a couple of seasons in second highest division, IFK were back in the highest tier and reclaimed its position as top team. After third place in 1970, and second place the year after, everybody was expecting a team to win the League in 1972. But to everyonessurprise, that season ended with HIFK being relegate, and what no one would have guessed was that this would be the last time IFK would play in the highest tier for over 40 years. What happened after the relegation of 1972 could best be described as a downward spiral. By 1980, HIFK were in fifth lowest division. Getting back to the top would prove to be much harder than expect. By year 1999, HIFK had taken themselves back to second highest division, Ykkonen, but at great cost. Football Club HIFK, corporation that oversees first team operations, filed for bankruptcy in spring of 2003 and Red Chested had to give up their position in Ykkonen.
