About FH

Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar, usually known as FH and sometimes known as FH Hafnarfjörður, was first established in October 1928. Based in the town of Hafnarfjarðar, the team have spent much of their history in the lower divisions of the Icelandic league system. However, FH have risen to far greater prominence in recent times and have enjoyed tremendous success, emerging as one of the dominant Úrvalsdeild teams of the 21st century so far. They are nicknamed FH-ingar.

After several decades in the lower leagues, FH earned promotion to the Úrvalsdeild for the first time in 1979. Their first season saw them finish two points above the relegation zone, but at the conclusion of the 1981 campaign, they were once again relegated to the second tier. Over the next two decades, the team bounced up and down between the divisions, until they returned to the top flight at the end of the 2000 season.

In 2002, the team were able to claim their first major honour, the Icelandic League Cup, and since that time FH have added many more trophies to their cabinet. In total, they have won six league titles, with those wins coming in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2012. Moreover, the club have been able to collect four additional Icelandic League Cups, two Icelandic Cups, six Icelandic Super Cups and the 2005 Atlantic Cup.

Hörður Magnússon is one of the best players to play for the club and he was the league's top goalscorer in 1989, 1990 and 1991. Other notable FH players include Allan Borgvardt, Tryggvi Guðmundsson and Atli Guðnason.

FH's home games are held at Kaplakriki Stadium, which was built in 1973. The venue underwent a renovations process in 2011 and currently holds a maximum of 6,450 people, with 3,050 seats. The long term plan, however, is for the stadium to become an all-seater venue, able to hold around 6,000 spectators.
