It will soon have been four months since AIK lost the Stockholm derby against Djurgården with 1-0, where scandal scenes took place at Tele2 Arena.
Since then, AIK has had a tough time. In 23 games played in Allsvenskan, the club has only six wins. Sunday's derby against Djurgården – which is classed as a high-risk match – had 41,000 tickets sold on Thursday.
"Derby are fun events, certainly a little more work, but they are fun and wonderful matches to experience on site," says Henrik Koch, head of security at AIK, to SVT Sport.
"Anything can happen"
Is it a different situation to organize a derby when AIK are where they are in the table?
"No, I don't think so, what we talk about at the club both from the player and supporter side is that we should do this together. But we have to be prepared for what may happen and happen, if something happens and happens as it has been in previous games. It's emotions.
What do you say to those who are afraid to bring their children and other family members to AIK's matches?
"I think you can bring your families, we have such a big arena and whole stand sections for families. Until now, we have had no worries at all with them. Families need not be worried.
Other actions taken
On Saturday, there was an uproar at Fridhemsplan where pictures from the scene showed how a group of football supporters in the middle of the street threw Bengals at each other and clashed with police officers.
"I don't think we'll see the pictures from Fridhemsplan on Sunday. We have built both with barriers and fences, moved nets to try to keep the fans apart. There is no major threat to the event. We will have more searches than usual, says Henrik Koch.
