Swedish football club sued for refusing girl, who identifies as a boy, to play for the boys’ team

A football club in the south of Sweden is being sued by a family from Malmö. The club excluded the family’s nine-year-old child from the boy’s team, since the child is legally a girl.

The child was born nine years ago as a girl, but, according to the family, has been identifying as a boy for a long time. Among other things, the child has been renamed, from a girl’s name to a boy’s name.

This has now created problems when the child is practicing sports. A football club denied the child to play on the boys’ team, and instead referred them to the girls’ team.

The family has been supported by an anti-discrimination agency, which has assisted them in contacts with the football club, but despite this, the club and the child’s family have not come up with a solution regarding the child’s football game.

The club stands firm, and says the child should play for the girls’ team, while the family demands that they let the child play for the boys’ team.

The disagreements will now be addressed in the district court, which will determine whether the club’s actions are to be regarded as discrimination or not.
