But Djurgården want's to build and OWN thier own stadium. Malmö FF only owns 25 % of Swedbank Stadion and has a leasing contract. DIF doesn't want to have such a contract with AEG or SvFF. Djurgården wants to own the stadium to 100%. A leasing contract will kill the club in long term. I am no expert but IMO to own a stadium and get all the income is way better than lease and only get the income of the games.Ofcourse, i understand that. But there are manny other factors in the "game".
Look at Malmö FF, and their arena for exemple. They are one of Swedens most rich clubs, with a lot of fans, but still, they don't go economic minus even after a year they win the league. Most because of their arena.
Not really. Many people (including me) would still go see Djurgården if they would play in SE. A new arena would attract the "supporters" that don't want to go to Stockholms Stadium that often. If you have ever seen a game from "kurvan" or the fond stand (fondläktaren) you know why there are only ~6k there. It's like 30m to the pitch, big pillars blocking the wiew, benches, etc. With a new high class stadium I am sure more people would find it more fun to go see Djurgårdens IF FF.Djurgården haven't got the results on their sides the past few years, and the economy haven't been the best. We all know that, when djurgården fotboll is in the bottom of the league, as now, you have around 5000 spectators each games. Could you imagine what you would have if you where in the second league, Superettan?
And with factors like, when the hockeyseason starts up, and people decide to spend their money to se djurgården hockey at Hovet...
Then you have even less spectators.
Could you imagine what would happen on a new arena?
