Idrottsföreningen Kamraterna (IFK) Fjärås was formed in 1932 at Westergård by some lads who wanted to start a football club. The oldest archived annual meeting minutes from the end of the 1930s indicate that the club activities included not only football but also walking, hiking and cross-country training for its members.[2]

IFK Fjärås now has over 800 members and is organised into three sections, namely men's, women's and a youth section. The club runs 25–30 teams and has around 350 active players. The main operations are based in Ögärdets IP at the Fjärås Fritidscentrum (Fjärås Leisure Centre). This is where the clubhouse is located along with two grass pitches for 11-a-side teams and a pitch for the seven-a-side teams.[3]

Since their foundation IFK Fjärås has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 3 Sydvästra Götaland which is the fifth tier of Swedish football.[4] Their best season was in 1998 when they finished 11th in Division 2 Västra Götaland, which was then the third tier of Swedish football.[5] The club play their home matches at the Ögärdets IP in Fjärås.[6]
