During a game in the seventh division, Sörskogens IF shouted abuse at Stockholm Snipers, a team that encourages LGBT players to join it.

"We had no choice but to suspend the entire team. The choice of words are not suitable in football or anywhere else. We are an association with 90 percent youth members and have to be clear about our values," the club's chairman, Ketil Torp, tells news agency TT.
