Several clubs with teams in the men's Swedish have in recent years started women's teams or otherwise got a women's team in their operations.

Elite women's soccer, EFD, believes that several factors are behind this happening right now.

- I think society at large.

But also that you see that there is a commercial and sporting interest, that you can attract new target groups by actually having a women's business as well, says Annika Grälls, chairman of EFD, to SVT Sport.

Malmö FF is one of the teams that started recently, but is also an association that has had women's teams before.

Annika Grälls believes that there is a reason why today's damallsvenska largely consists of pure women's associations and clubs that now have both a men's and women's team in the same business must work for it to work.

- I think it's a lot about attitude and will, that if you want this seriously, you also have to have a plan on how to integrate the women's business in a good way, she says.

"I think it benefits football in general"

There is one thing that the men's team has that Annika Grälls hopes the ladies can take part in - large crowds of supporters.

- I think it is important to see that you can be a supporter regardless of which team plays.

If we can take part in that part, that you keep the club regardless of team, then I think it benefits football in general.
