From 3-3 against Norrtulls SK on Djursholm's IP to home match against most champions Malmö FF. Amir Azrafshan, new head coach in Östersund, has a huge task ahead of him. The Giants have started the season offensively, but took an important three-point away to Falkenberg at the last Allsvenskan.
Azrafshan most recently comes from Djursholms FK in division four, but has previous experience from the superetta and allsvenskan after two seasons in Dalkurd between 2017-2018.
- Of course, it feels fantastic to have this opportunity. ÖFK's basic view with a focus on individual and legislative development as well as long-term view I fully share, he says to the team's website.
Ian Burchnall was allowed to leave ÖFK after the two parties did not "share the same vision for the club". The Englishman took over after the successor Graham Potter and has held the head coach responsibility for the last two years in Östersund.
