Background

Since their foundation in 1913, Västerås IK has participated mainly in the middle divisions of the Swedish football league system. Their peak came early in the club's history when Västerås IK competed in the inaugural 1924–25 Allsvenskan season. The club's stay in the top tier was short-lived, however, and they were relegated at the end of the season having won only two games. As of the 2014 season, the club plays in Division 2 Norra Svealand, which is the fourth tier of Swedish football.[2] They play their home matches at the Apalby IP in Västerås.[3]

Västerås IK are affiliated to the Västmanlands Fotbollförbund.[4]
