In 1897 the name was changed to Hammarby Idrottsförening (Hammarby IF) as a result of the fact that the club's athlethes were now engaging in more sports than just rowing. Hammarby Football has won 1 national championship title, and was up until that first title, in 2001, considered as a yo yo club, going up and down in the league system. The club has now been playing in the highest Swedish league, Allsvenskan, since 1998. Hammarby is often regarded as, in a historical sense, being the 'team of the workers' of the poorer southern parts of early 20th century Stockholm. The club is owned to 49% by the Anschutz Entertainment Group.
