AaB Fodbold,[1] also referred to as Aalborg BK[2] or AaB,[3] is a professional Danish Superliga and have won four Danish Superliga championships and three Danish Cup trophies. The last trophy they won was the double in 2014, the Danish cup and championship.

AaB became the first Danish team ever to participate in the UEFA Champions League group stage in 1995. AaB also qualified for the 2008–09 Champions League and qualified for the UEFA Cup in the same season by finishing in 3rd place in their Champions League group.

History

Aalborg BK was a part of the top-flight Danish leagues from the 1928–29 season, until the [4]

Through the 1990s, the club won its first two Danish championships. In the Scottish club Rangers, but in Søren Frederiksen, the club found its next goal-getter. Though not the league top scorer, Frederiksen scored 17 goals in the Danish Superliga 1998-99 which the club won under guidance of Swedish coach Hans Backe. Once again, Aalborg BK faced Dinamo Kyiv in the Champions League qualification, but this time they fell short, losing 1–2 at home and drawing 2–2 in Kyiv after a late Aalborg BK goal was disallowed for being behind the goal line.

Since then, the club established itself in the top half of the Superliga and won a bronze medal and qualified for the Anderlecht, Tottenham Hotspur, Getafe, and Hapoel Tel Aviv. Drawing with Anderlecht at home, and losing 2–3 to Tottenham (after being ahead 2–0 after the first half) forced Aalborg to win at home against Getafe, a match Aalborg BK lost 1–2.

In the 2007–08 season, Aalborg won their third Danish Championship and qualified for the 2008–09 UEFA Cup knockout stage.

Their first match in their UEFA Cup run was against Spanish side Manchester City. After a 2–0 loss in Manchester in the first leg Aalborg BK fought back to tie the score with a 2–0 win at home. The tie ended in agony however, as Aalborg were defeated by 4–3 on penalties.

On May 11, 2014, the club won their 4th Danish Championship, and four days later the double was secured, as the club defeated Copenhagen 4–2 in the Cup final.

Stadium

Since 1920, Aalborg BK has played its games at Aalborg Stadion. The stadium was opened on 18 July 1920 with a north-south aligned playing field. The first spectator seats was built in 1927, and in 1937 a wooden terrace for 3,000 standing spectators was built. In 1960, the stadium burned down and a new east-western aligned concrete stadium was opened in 1962. In recent years the stadium have been enlarged and rebuilt so that it now has modern facilities and roof over all spectator stands.[5] The stadium currently has the capacity of 16,000 people (7,700 seats) or 10,500 people (all seats).
