About AGF

Aarhus Gymnastikforening (AGF or AGF Aarhus) is one of the oldest sport clubs in Denmark. AGF participates in a variety of activities in both individual and team sports. AGF is best known for its football (soccer) team which has the longest streak in the Danish top division and also holds the record for most number of cup wins. However, the club has struggled with poor results and a string of bad management decisions since its impressive Danish Superliga 1995-96 season. The club currently plays in the best tier of the league system, the Danish Superliga.

AGF has twice reached the quarter-final stage in European Cups: In 1961, losing to S.L. Benfica in the European Cup and Champions League history (1–4 home and 1–3 away), and in 1989, losing to FC Barcelona in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (0–1 home, 0–0 away). AGF has played a total of 52 matches in European Cups: 18 matches in the former European Champions' Cup, 18 in the Cup-Winners’ Cup (a Danish club record), 14 in the UEFA Cup and two preliminary round matches for the UEFA Cup.






- AGF have reserved Squad number (association football) 12 for the fans, since the fans are the "twelfth man" on the pitch. The initiative came from members of the official fanclub.
