VMA (Ädlavallen)

Ground: Ädlavallen

Visits: 1

Date: 24th April 2010

Match: VMA - Karlskrona  2-0  (Division 2 Östra Götaland)

Attendance: 175

 

VMA is a club which is the result of three villages (Vånga, Mjönäs and Arkelstorp) merging their football clubs in 2002. All three villages are situated 20-30 km north of Kristianstad and it is a remarkable achievement that a club like VMA are playing as a high as Division 2, the 4th tier of Swedish football. In 2004 the newly formed club were promoted to Division 2 for the first time. They were immediately relegated but after winning Division 3 last season they are back in Division 2. One interesting thing about the club is that home matches during the first half of the season is played at Ädlavallen in Vånga, during the second half of the season VMA switch to Arkelstorps IP. The strong winter in Sweden was bad news for grass pitches in Sweden but for some reason the pitch at Ädlavallen was in excellent condition. From what I have seen on TV I can honestly say very few, if any, of the grass pitches in Allsvenskan and Superettan are as good as the one at Ädlavallen. When it comes to the match I was expecting the visitors from Karlskrona to win quite easy but after a poor start VMA played really well and in the second half they scored twice to win the game 2-0. The last goal was scored from the penalty spot but VMA deserved all three points. I had never been to Ädlavallen before and it may not look like a proper football ground but I have to say this is a great place to watch football.
