Welcome to Järnsvenskan 2017 (#Rubenstock)
Hidden i the deep forests of Sweden lays the small town called Järnboås, where the heart of the Swedish jugger-community is located. With your help we can make it thrive even more!
Between 3-4 of June Järnsvenskan is going of at Finnsjöstrand. Saturday is set for the pools and Sunday is for finals. There will be a lot more activity like live music, pomfen-battles, BBQ and much much more.
There will be a small fee for the tournament this year to cover unexpected experiences, oh, I mean expenses. This fee will be on 25 Euro per team and can only be paid in advance.
We will be updating this continuously throughout the spring with all the necessary information and happenings.

Here is some last updates and practical information to all!
==== INFORMATIONDESK/CHECK-IN ====
The informationdesk opens at 8.00 and every team should check in between 8.00 and 10.00.
Here you will get information about which pool your team will play in among other information. For those of you that have bought t-shirts, those will be picked up here. There is some extra t-shirts left so if you missed out on the opportunity to buy one, fear not you still got a chance for only 250 sek.
Here you will be able to sign in on a pompfen-tournament. As we are a little short on staff we hope that all the interested players will be able to administer this together.
If you have any kind of merch you will be able to hang them up or lay them out in the informationdesk, note that we donÂ’t take any responsibility for your merch and we will not handle any cashflow of any kind for your merch.
===== OPENING AND INFORMATION ====
At 10.00 we will have an information speech on stage. We will set a small amount of time off here, for captains only, to discuss the rules. This is to make sure that every team use the same ruleset. So if your team have some questions or you are thinking of something, pass it to your captain and we will discuss it there.
The first matches starts at 11.00. Every match got a timeline of about 30 minutes. We hope that this will be upheld to the closest. So make sure that you got all your gear ready when itÂ’s your turn to play. For this convenience, we have also set out which matches each team will have referees on. This information will be found in the informationdesk or near every field.
The pools and lower bracket will be played on Saturday and all the final matches will be played on Sunday. As soon as the pool matches are finished we will announce who made it to the finals and who will be playing in the lower brackets.
==== FOOD AND DRINK ====
Between 12.00 to 16.00, both Saturday and Sunday, you will be able to buy hamburgers for 60 sek, Swedish fika and drinks for 10-15 sek (depending on chooses). We recommend that you bring some extra cash so you can get something in your belly along the tournament. You can pay with cash or with swish transfer.
If you decide to shop for your own food and want it to stay cold during the daytime there will be a fridge near the informationdesk that you can use for this, note that there will be a limited amount of room here, so think before you fill the fridge. There will also be a microwave and a kettle (water boiler) there for free usage. We will also have some grills ready for you too, later on the evenings.
Here are the sizes and dimensions on the T-shirts. When you order your shirts we would like you to bunch as many payment as possible, the reason to this is because we get a fee for every transaction made.
The shirts costs Â€ 25 and you will pay it to the same account as all other charges/fees, see below.
Latest date for t-shirt orders is April 20th. This is so we can get them in time for the tournament.
