Swedish Superserien doubling in size in 2024, and will include Norwegian champions

The Swedish Superserien will at least double in size according to reports expanding from four to at least eight teams in 2024.

There are rumors that even more teams could be added as well.

With a schedule starting in April, the defending champion Stockholm Mean Machines, along with the Carlstad Crusaders, Örebro Black Knights and Tyresö Royal Crowns will be joined by the Limhamn Griffins, Kristianstad Predators, AIK and for the first time ever a team from Norway, the reigning Norwegian title holders, the  Oslo Vikings.

The league has not had this many teams since 2014 when nine teams battled for the championship.

For the past five seasons, the Superserien has operated as a four team league. From 2019 to 2021, the Mean Machines, Crusaders, Black Knights and Uppsala 86ers competed for the title and in 2022 the Royal Crowns joined the league after Uppsala dropped out.

Apparently there are plans to expand the league even further in 2025 to transform the Superserien into a true pan Scandinavian league by adding teams from Denmark and another team from Norway.

How this will affect the potential expansion of the European League of Football into the Nordic region is difficult to say. Also, could a future merger of some kind with Finland’s Maple League be a possibility?
