IFK was created in Stockholm in 1895. The idea was to have a nationwide club. The movement was so successful that IFK clubs were created not only in Sweden, but also in Finland, Denmark and Norway.

Today there are well over a 150 different IFK clubs that compete in the most various sports. A single club can also have many different sections. IFK Göteborg, for example, competes, in both, orienteering, bowling, cross-country skiing, football, and a number of other sports.
