    Sweden Qualification for Hockeyallsvenskan 2015/16

    It is now time time to start the qualification for HockeyAllsvenskan next season (2016/17).

    The qualification system is the same as last season, except that only two teams will qualify:

    The two winners of AllEttan Norra and AllEttan Södra qualifies directly for the qualificion series: Borlänge HF from Norra and Västerviks IK from Södra.
    The qualification series will also contain the teams placed 13th and 14th in HockeyAllsvenskan: IF Sundsvall Hockey and Asplöven HC will have the dubious honour. The last two teams will be determined in a playoff stage. The top two teams are qualified for HockeyAllsvenskan.

    Playoff 1 - The first two teams in each of the Div 1 Spring series faces the teams placed 2-5 in AllEttan Norra and AllEttan Södra. They play a best-of-three series of games. The pairs are:

    Tranås AIF - Skövde IK
    Östersunds IK - Vännäs HC
    Piteå HC - Lindlövens IF
    Kiruna IF - Örnsköldsvik HF
    Södertälje SK - Halmstad HF
    IF Troja/Ljungby - Hammarby IF
    Huddinge IK - Kristianstads IK
    Visby/Roma HK - Åker/Strängnäs HC

    Playoff 2 - The Playoff 1 winners are ranked and the top four drawn against the bottom for. They play a best-of-three series.

    Södertälje SK - Piteå HC
    Tranås AIF - Visby/Roma HK
    Östersunds IK - Kristiandstads IK
    IF Troja/Ljungby - Kiruna IF

    Playoff 3 - The four PO2 winners are paired according to their ranking.

    Södertälje SK - Kristianstads IK
    IF Troja/Ljungby - Visby/Roma HK

    The qualification series will start March 10.

    Södertälje SK being at this point will always amaze me.... seems like it wasn't all that long ago (I know... it's been more than a couple years now, but still) they were playing Elitserien hockey.
    Crazy how things can move.

    Also, I've been reading these threads too long, I recognize the names of most of the clubs you've listed here, and they are not top-level clubs in Sweden. Always fun to watch how this stuff develops!

    Well, Sodertalje aren't making it easy for themselves. Again they lose Game 1 away (this time at Kristianstads). Interesting to see if they can come back again.

    Sodertalje came back again to knock out Kristianstads. Troja/Ljungby are through too. Looking forward to seeing what happens to the final qualification tournament.

    Västerviks turnaround in the third period tightened up the series. Almost halfway through the series it looks like a three team race for the two promotion spots.

    The situation halfway through is precarious for Asplöven. They will need to start picking points on a regular basis to defend their spot in Hockeyallsvenskan. The race is close at the top and all teams still has a good chance to promote.

    Södertälje and Västervik are in the driver's seat in this series with a healthy lead over Sundsvall in third place. It currently looks like both Sundsvall and Asplöven will be demoted to Div 1 for next season.

    Congratulations to Sodertalje who clinched promotion tonight. Very pleased to see them back in Allsvenskan.

    Vasterviks has almost clinched promotion too now. Interesting to see how they fare in the higher division. Would their biggest local derby be vs Oskarshamn?

    5Asplöven HC822428:29 (-1) 91001
    6Borlänge HF810716:37 (-21) 30000

    After eight rounds it is clear that Södertälje will promote to Hockeyallsvenskan while Sundsvall and Asplöven will be sent down to division 1. There is still a tiny chance for Troja/Ljungby to catch up to Västervik and snatch that other promotion spot, but I don't believe Västervik will miss this chance for promotion.

    Now Västervik too can celebrate their promotion. In the end it looks like the two best teams prevailed. Both Västervik and Södertälje won their respective div1-series, they came in first and second in Allettan Södra and have sailed through this series as well. Asplöven and Sundsvall will have to restart from division 1.

    Rumor is that Asplöven has decided to drop down to Division 2 instead. To rebuild completely

    Qualification series, round 10 (final)

    2016-04-02 Södertälje SK - Asplöven HC 3 - 1 (0-0, 1-1, 2-0) 3395 Scaniarinken
    2016-04-02 IF Troja/Ljungby - Borlänge HF 10 - 2 (4-0, 3-1, 3-1) 1193 Ljungby Arena A-hallen
    2016-04-02 IF Sundsvall Hockey - Västerviks IK 4 - 3 (1-1, 1-1, 1-1, 0-0, 1-0) 419 Sundsvall Energi Arena

    The final round was essentially exhibition games when Södertälje and Västervik both were alread qualified for Hockeyallsvenskan. Troja/Ljungby clinched third place, which could become valuable if any team has to withdraw for financial reasons.

    I know they have had a very tight budget and announced earlier that they needed to raise SEK 1mio. to finance the qualification series. Haven't been able to find any info on this rumour though...
