VAGS Bóltfelag ( "Ball Club of Vágur "), abbreviated as VB , also known as VB Vágur , is a handball club based in Vágur on the island Suðuroy to be Denmark belonging Faroe Islands . The former soccer division merged with SÍ Sumba in 2005 and has been operating as FC Suðuroy since 2010 .


On June 5, 1905 young people met in the club ( Klubbin ) of Vágur for a meeting. Many of them had been abroad and seen people doing different sports there. Everyone agreed that football is the most interesting thing for them. This was probably due to the fact that TB Tvøroyri was founded in 1892 and HB Tórshavn and KÍ Klaksvík were founded in 1904 .

The new club was given the Danish name Vaag Sportsforening . The first board consisted of the chairman Daniel Thomsen, vice-president Peter Dahl and treasurer Magnus P. Jacobsen.

On June 8, 1910, the club got its first jerseys. They were blue with a yellow ball marked VS on their chest. Such a jersey cost only 2.75 crowns back then. There was no soccer field and so you played on the beach. On June 12, 1910 there was the first game between TB Tvøroyri and VB Vágur.

On November 2, 1924 it was decided to build a soccer field vesturi á Eiði , on the west coast of the isthmus of Vágur. On June 2, 1925, VB got red and blue jerseys and white shorts. The red / white combination is still used today. On June 24, 1926, HB Tórshavn played for the first time in Vágur, and on July 24, 1927, VB's first game took place in Tórshavn. On July 13, 1930, the VB visited Klaksvík for the first time . KÍ played the second leg on June 8 of the same year.

On August 18, 1929, the Shetland Islands played against VB and won 3-1. It was not until the following year that there was the first "international match" between the Faroe Islands and Shetland. Even if VB suffered from the fact that the young men mostly went to sea, VB provided players for the Faroe Islands national selection in the games against Shetland and Iceland from the start .

In 1948 a handball field was built next to the vesturi á Eiði soccer field . The handball players were at least as successful at the national level as the soccer players.

In 1994 the football division of VB merged with SÍ Sumba , but the partners separated again the following year. In 2005 the football departments of both clubs reunited, but the handball division continues to appear as VB Vágur.


VB Vágur's team with the silver medal after the 2013 cup final.

The women's team has already won three championship titles, the first one in 1950. The cup final was reached a total of eight times. After losing the final in 1991 with 11:12 against Skála ÍF , the first victory was achieved in 1993 against Stjørnan Klaksvík with 21:13. The finals in 2000 and 2001 were lost with 21:22 against Kyndil Tórshavn and 18:31 against Vestmanna ÍF . The revenge and thus the second cup victory was achieved in 2003 with 19:18, in the same year the second championship title and thus the double was celebrated. In 2004 the team lost again to Stjørnan Klaksvík in the cup final with 19:20, but in 2005 the third championship title was won. In 2007 and 2012 VB Vágur failed again in the cup final against Stjørnan Klaksvík with 28:31 and 23:27 respectively.

The men, on the other hand, are still without a title and took fourth place in the third division in 2012.



The men's team took part regularly in the Faroese championship from 1943 and was also a founding member of the Meistaradeildin in 1947 . However, in 1951, 1953–55 and 1960–65 they did not participate. The team belonged to the first division until 1981, after which it remained in the second division for five years. After first division football could be offered again from 1987 to 1993, the team took first place in the second division in 1994 and then merged with the fifth place in the second division, SÍ Sumba . This merger as Sumba / VB existed after a penultimate place in the first division but only one year. Until 2004 VB Vágur stayed in the first division, in 2005 a new merger with SÍ Sumba under the name VB / Sumba was decided. Since 2010 the football department has been operating under the name FC Suðuroy .
