    More sports watching

    by Henrik_rrb Written Oct 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As I mentioned above Gothenburg is full of sporting activities to watch. Apart from football and ice hockey the city has also elite teams in handball (Redbergslid and Sävehof), basket (newly founded Gothia basket), floorball (Pixbo) and bandy (Gais).

    Handball is played in Lisebergshallen (Redbergslid) and Partillebohallen (Sävehof). The latter one actually situated in Partille, a city outside Gothenburg.
    Also floorball (hands up everyone who knows that sport...?) is played in Lisebergshallen, but also in Wallenstamshallen in Mölnlycke).
    Basket is played in Högsbohallen, a bit outside the central parts.
    Bandy is played at Ruddalen, next to where the football club Frölunda plays their home games.

    For female teams the best shot would be:
    Football: Göteborg/Landvetter (playing at Valhalla stadium from autumn 2006, very central) or Jitex (playing in Mölndal, south of Gothenburg).
    Handball: Sävehof has a great team, and so has also Önnered.

    Indians playing ice hockey...

    by Henrik_rrb Written Oct 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're not a big fan of football/soccer maybe a game of ice hockey sounds better for you? In Gothenburg one of Sweden's best teams, Västra Frölunda, plays.
    Season goes from early september to the end of april. 55 games in the serie, and then quarter-, semi- and final, with even more games...

    Frölunda play their homegames in Scandinavium, which takes almost 12 000 spectators. The indoor stadium was earlier wide famous for it's orange colour, but to this season they re-painted the whole building grey.

    Frölunda, called the Indians, won the swedish league in 2003 and 2005, losing the final to Färjestad in 2006. This season they have started really badly, after losing quite many players to the NHL.

    This has also meant that the supporters comes less to the matches, which means it's now easier to get a ticket to a game again. The last 2-3 years it has been almost impossible to find a ticket if not being a member or having a season ticket.

    Ticket prices goes from 150 SEK and up I think.

    Equipment: Earlier they played in a classic green and white shirt, but with the american culture coming also to Sweden, naming the club Frölunda Indians, also the classic colours were gone.
    They are nowadays mostly red, with some parts of the dress in white and green and yellow and probably pink too... Who knows, with all these americanisation...? ;)

    Fishing

    By now, you have probably realised that Gothenburg is all about the sea, so of course fishing can be arranged. Pike and perch can be fished in the inland lakes at Delsjön whilst salmon can be fished in the rivers Lärje and Säve. If you want to go fishing in the archipelago, that can naturally be arranged too. Your best bet is to contact the tourist information as they have a list of all the updated boat tours arranged for that, as well as routes to the inland areas, and they also sell the fishing licenses needed everywhere east of the Götaälv Bridge. Should you be unlucky, just see my tips about the "fish church" and fish auction...
