Hillerod Fodbold

Hillerod Fodbold is a Danish association football club, located in the district of Ullerod in the western part of Hillerod, that is an independent men's football department of the sports club, Hillerod Gymnastik- og Idratsforening (HGI). The club is playing their home games at Hillerod Stadium (previously known as Selskov Stadium) at either the exhibition ground (known as bane 1), that can hold 5,000 standing spectators or at a fenced football field (known as bane 2), that can hold approx. 1,500 spectators and features 240 seats. After having been founded as a multi-sports club under the name Ullerod Gymnastikforening (abbreviated UGF) in 1937, the club changed their name to Hillerod G&IF in 1968. With the introduction of a women's football department in 1970, the men's football department was then referred to as Hillerod GI Herrefodbold until 2009, when the senior men's team was renamed Hillerod Fodbold.

A slow ascent from the lower regional league levels started in the 1970s, reaching the highest regional division, Zealand Series, in 1977, and the highest amateur league, Denmark Series, in 1992. After a series of promotions and relegations between the fourth, fifth and sixth levels from the late 1970s up until the late 2000s, the team was sent back to the third best regional league in the 2011/12-season, before they one season later secured four promotions over the course of six seasons to reach the national professional leagues in 2017. As of the 2018/19-season, the club's first men's team play in Danish 2nd Division after winning promotion to the third level from the Denmark Series in the 2016/17-season for the first time in the club's history. At the 1990/91-edition of the Danish Cup, the Hillerod-based team reached the fourth round (round of 16), where they were ultimately defeated at Brondby Stadium by Brondby IF.

The Hillerod-based club has fielded two active players on the national football teams, a youth player for the Under-17 and Under-19 teams, and a senior player (Christopher Jakobsen) on the Denmark national football team.
