The AB Argir , full name Argja Bóltfelag ( German  football club from Argir ), shortly AB is one of six football clubs of the Faroese capital Tórshavn and plays in the first Deild .


Argja Bóltfelag was founded on August 15, 1973. The founding father was the Dane Johnny Nyby together with other sports friends in Argir, the southern district of Tórshavn. Argir was already part of the contiguous settlement area of ​​Tórshavn. Seen in this way, AB was the third Tórshavn club after HB Tórshavn (1904) and B36 Tórshavn (1936). However, Argir was only incorporated in 1997, so that Fram Tórshavn (1975) can count as an older capital club.

In the spring of 1974, AB elected its first board of directors. The first president was Johnny Nyby, vice-president Fróði Olsen, treasurer Sonja á Argjaboða and secretary Kristian Arge. The assessors were: Erling Olsen, Sæmundur Mortenen and Jens Hansen.

In the same year the club took part in the regular Faroese football matches.

At first there was only a narrow school yard available as a training ground. Later there was a 20 × 40 meter square next to the school. As a result, there was no stadium of their own, but with the permission of the clubs HB Tórshavn and B36 Tórshavn and the municipality of Tórshavn , AB was able to rent the pitch in Gundadalur for training and league games. In this way, AB was able to participate in regular sports activities.

In 1983 a real football field was built in Argir, which significantly improved conditions for AB. In 1985 the clubhouse was added in the basement of the previous school building.

The Argir Stadium has had artificial turf since 1998 and therefore the same conditions as the other clubs in the Faroe Islands.

In the 2006 season Argir was the first time in the Formuladeildin (now Betrideildin ), the highest league, ascend, but increased as Penultimate again immediately. In 2008 the club reached second place in the 1st Deild and thus played again in the top division in 2009, in which this time relegation could be secured with a sixth place. A season later, AB Argir had to start again in the second division. In 2011, the promotion seemed to be already certain, when before the last matchday there was a goal difference of six goals better than the tied team from TB Tvøroyri , thanks to an 11-0 win by TB against EB / Streymur II with a 6-1 - AB's victory against FC Hoyvík , this lead was lost and the ascent was missed due to the fewer goals scored. The decisive goal for TB came from a penalty in the sixth minute of stoppage time. In 2012 he finally managed to get up in second place. In 2016, when he was ninth, he was relegated again, and when the 1st Deild came first , he was immediately promoted again.
