With 230,000 amateur players and 300,000 young players, football is the most popular sport in Sweden, ahead of winter sports such as skiing and ice hockey. Women's football is particularly well developed, and there are 29,000 amateur players and more than 100,000 young players registered with clubs. The Swedish Football Association was established in 1904, but football arrived in the country in the 1870s.
UEFA World Cup Qualifiers
The Union of European Football Associations, almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA is the administrative and controlling body for European association football, futsal and beach soccer. UEFA represents most of the national football associations of Europe, runs national and club competitions in its area, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia, are members of the UEFA rather than AFC, as are Israel and Cyprus which lie entirely in Asia.
