History

The Assyrians who had settled in Gothenburg formed in 1976 the football club Goteborgs Assyriska Idrottsforening (GAIF) that was attached to the Assyriska Mesopotamiska Association in Gothenburg.

After a couple years of football experience they formed in 1985 Assyriska BK (ABK) as a sports division of the Assyriska Mesopotamiska Association in Gothenburg. ABK was reformed into an independent association and formed with the objective of promoting their sporting interests in the Assyrian Association in Gothenburg. The club has its base within the Assyriska Association of Vastra Frolunda with over 1,000 members. Since their foundation Assyriska BK has participated mainly in the middle and lower divisions of the Swedish football league system. Over the years the club has expanded and has today several youth teams.

In 2016 Assyriska BK was promoted for the first time in the club history to Division 1 which is the third tier of Swedish football.
