We Are Not You: The AIK Mantra

Some football clubs offer a simple, modest approach to the game and their community. You come to the ground on  weekends, support your side, hope for a win, and then get on with your life.

Well, in Stockholm, that’s not how Swedish club AIK sees the game. Every fan expects a win. They scream for 110% from every player on the pitch. They dream of giving opponents nightmares. United by the fight against an opponent, any opponent, AIK is a family that lives and breathes the idea of one against. As a new season begins, this is their mantra, declared by their English midfielder Kenny Pavey. Make no mistake, supporters want everyone to know exactly what AIK represents.
