All change in Swedish Allsvenskan football league

Halmstad have won promotion back up to the top flight of Swedish league football, Allsvenskan, despite losing to rivals Sundsvall, who are now relegated down to the Superettan league.

Sundsvall beat Halmstad 4 - 3 in Saturday's all important final match at home, but Halmstad had already beaten the northerners 3 - 0 in the first leg, meaning Halmstad got the golden ticket back up to Allsvenskan.
