SønderjyskE Fodbold

SønderjyskE is a Aabenraa) and an ice hockey team (SønderjyskE Ishockey, based in Vojens). All the teams play in Southern Jutland. The name is short for Sønderjysk Elitesport (English language: Southern Jutlandic Elite Sport).

SønderjyskE was created as a club for the whole region of South Jutland as it was obvious that it was impossible to create elite teams able to compete in the top leagues on the former basis of city teams. The men's football team used to be solely based in the city of Haderslev under the name Haderslev FK. In 2004 all the elite teams in football, ice hockey and handball merged into SønderjyskE, enabling the clubs to represent not only a city but the whole region of South Jutland (Sønderjylland), which drew more attention to the teams from sponsors, fans and media and made it easier to keep talents in South Jutland.

As of 2009-07-01 4 of the 5 teams in the club play in the best Danish leagues: Men's football (Latest position: 6th), women's football (latest position: relegated to second-best league), women's handball (latest position: 12th) and the ice hockey team (latest position: 1st). The male handball team finished 1st in the second-best Danish league.
