Vimmerby IF, founded in 1919, is a Swedish professional football club located in Vimmerby in Kalmar County. VIF won the 2009–10 Swedish Futsal Championship and are Sweden's representative in the 2010–11 UEFA Futsal Cup.



Since their foundation Vimmerby IF has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 2 Södra Svealand which is the fourth tier of Swedish football. They play their home matches at the Vimarvallen in Vimmerby.

In autumn 2009, the city council made the exciting decision to build an artificial turf training facility in conjunction with current Ceosvallen. The Arena Ceos Project will be the biggest project since the club was formed in 1919. VIF has worked earnestly for decades to bring about a relocation of the main arena and to get proper winter training opportunities. The municipality's commitment is to build and own the facility and to lease it to Vimmerby IF who will manage the operation of both artificial grass and other green spaces in the Ceosvallen.

Vimmerby IF are affiliated to the Smålands Fotbollförbund.


A great achievement for Vimmerby IF has been winning the 2009–10 Swedish Futsal Championship. In the final against IFK Skövde who had won the previous 4 championships, VIK came back from 5–2 down with 5 minutes remaining to win 6–5 with a dramatic last minute winner. The club were Sweden's representative in the 2010–11 UEFA Futsal Cup but were knocked out in the preliminary round in a group held at Hafnarfjörður in Iceland. The group comprised Kremlin-Bicêtre United (France), CFE/VDL Groep (Holland), Keflavík ÍF (Iceland) and Vimmerby IF with the winners Kremlin-Bicêtre United progressing into the next round.
