The Swedish Damallsvenskan clubs are all preparing for the start of the season which is now less than 2 months away. Some clubs are playing games amongst themselves while others have also been playing lower division teams, foreign teams or even younger boys.

KIF Örebro and AIK played in Örebro yesterday, and the game ended with a 2-2 draw. AIK took the lead when Therese Andersson scored the first goal but Hanna Ågren leveled the scores. Clara Marksted took the lead back for the Damallsvenskan newcomers but Sanna Tallonen found another equalizer for Örebro.

The reigning champions, LdB Malmö, are not only preparing for the Damallsvenskan start, but also the Champions League. A good way to measure up where they stand against their next opponents, 1.FFC Frankfurt, was to play their last opponents in the CL. Frankfurt defeated Stabæk 2-1 so Malmö had a good opponent in Stabæk. It took only 45 seconds for LdB to take the lead, as Therese Sjögran scored the first goal. Stabæk got an equalizer but it was an own goal by LdB. Katrin Schmidt took the lead back after 25 minutes and Katrine Veje scored the final goal in the second half.

Yesterday, a friendly tournament in Växsjö kicked off with four teams, Linköping, Tyresö, Kopparbergs/Göteborg and Öster. Linköping and Tyresö met in the first round and the game ended with a 1-1 draw with goals from Line Röddik Hansen and NIlla Fischer, so the game went to penalties. Linköping came out victorious from the shout out, after 18 taken penalties and therefor play the final today against Kopparbergs/Göteborg.

The Gothenburg team beat the hosts, Öster, with 0-4. Despite the goal difference, Öster put up a great fight but weren't able to maintain the Damallsvenskan giants. Ingrid Wells, Sara Lindén and Linnea Liljegärd(2) scored the goals for Kopparbergs/Göteborg.
