The club won promotion to the top division, at the time known as Allsvenskan, in 1941, but were relegated after one season. They did not return until 1997, when the league had been renamed Elitserien.[2] In 1998–99, IFK Ystad finished 7th in the autumn season and qualified for the spring season of Elitserien.[3] They finished last (8th) in the spring league, but still qualified for the premilinary round of the playoffs.[4] They eliminated Lugi HF in the preliminary round[5], but were defeated by HK Drott in the quarterfinals.[6] In 1999–2000, the club finished 7th in the spring Elitserien[7] and lost against Alingsås HK in the playoffs preliminary round.[8] In the following season they improved to 4th and qualified directly for the quarterfinals[9], where they were eliminated by IFK Skövde.[10] In 2001–02, IFK Ystad finished second in the spring league[11], but were defeated by Lugi HF in the quarterfinals.[12] They finished fourth in the spring league in 2002–03[13], and were again eliminated in the quarterfinals, by IFK Skövde.[14] For 2003–04 the autumn and spring leagues were discontinued and a single league was played each season.
