Kronohagens Idrottsförening is a sports club from Helsinki, Finland. The club was founded on 27 September 1908 in Maneesikatu, Kruununhaka district of Helsinki. The club has been mainly known for the achievements of its association football, handball and ice hockey teams. In the past the club also won the Kalevan malja in athletics. Other sports that the club had participate include shooting, bandy and boxing.
The men’s football team is historically one of the most successful teams in Finland, and won the national football championship on three occasions during the 1910s and once in 1950’s, but currently plays in the Kakkonen (Second Division), the third tier of Finnish football. The football section of Kronohagens Idrottsförening is now known as FC Kiffen 08.
Our Honorary Chairman Göran Wallen said once that “Kiffen is not a club whose motto is order and discipline. In contrast, we can be said to be liberal, permissive, free and independent. Kiffen is an option, and we still stand out from the crowd, often for good and sometimes for bad.”
