Season 63


Grindavík Grizzlies is an Icelandic football club founded by Dronkert86

History

On 23-07-2020 the signatures were set, by the owners of Beeldenstorm F.C, on an agreement to create a new club in Iceland. The affiliated club was named Grindavík Grizzlies and based in the region of Suðurnes. The owner said that this was a big day for the city of Grindavík and also for Beeldenstorm F.C. in the Netherlands.

First match

The first match was played only three days later on the home ground, Bláa Lónið (Blue lagoon) Everyone in the stadium was very excited and after the match there was a big celebration, not only because of the realisation of the new club, but also by the very suprising win. After goals of Tor Øyvind Bergseng, Freymundur Erlingsson and Snorri Bragason, every felt that this was a good foundation to bring a lot of succes in the near future.

Home ground

The stadium of Grindavík Grizzlies is Bláa Lónið, which means Blue Lagoon in Icelandic. There are 8.000 terraces, 3.000 basic seatings and 1000 seats under the high-tech retractable roof. With a total of 12.000 and a big stand where the Grizzlies fan club roar ! there is a high tense atmosphere every home game. After the first season we decided to expand the capacity to 18.000 and later at the end of season two, we went to 30.000 seats. With our fanclub growing and growing we expect to build an entire new stadium in the near future.

First Season

Because Dronkert86 took charge halfway through the season, the new franchise replaced FC Gunnlauchson and took over the 2nd position in the league table. The first season was to get experience in the league and set the bar for the upcoming seasons. At the Season 62 page you can find all the results and other information about the first season of the Grizzlies.

The first season of Icelandic team the Grindavík Grizzlies started in week 8 of the 62th season. We took over the license of Gunnlauchson who unfortunately got bankrupt and started in league IV.39 on the second place and never gave that position away. The first thing the new manager did was buying a couple of great young prospects like Hungarians Szintye, Kajla and Nemeth and also Bunea from Romania, Raun from Estonia and Bergseng from Norway. Two months later we sold Szintye for a record breaking fee of € 349.000. In our first match we surprised everyone with a great win against Stúlkafluga Int. After 90 minutes the score of 3-2 was on the scoreboard and the start of an exciting future. Wit wins against Weed Raiders and AC Zetor we collected 9 points in our first 3 matches. Unfortunately in the last 4 matches of the season we only got 2 points and conceded 8 goals. At the end of the season we decided to hire a new head coach from Italy and we expect a lot of him in the forthcoming season. We wish Valerio Scorza al the best during his time with the Grindavík Grizzlies.

Season 63

Season 63 was the first one that the Grizzlies played from start to finish. After the second place last season, everybody expected a lot, but certainly not a championship, but that is exactly what did happend. With new player Dainis Brenards from Latvia and the departion of Bunea and Kajla we're ready for the first games. Our season started in the first round of the Íslandsbikarinn and that was a tough one. With 5 goals conceded against the Reggae Lions we were eliminated from the Icelandic national cup. With low morale we played our first league match and won surprisingly with 1-3 and that was the first 3 points of the total of 42 we collected that season. With great wins against Coca Cola Romanian Team (6-1) KF Ísafjörthur (5-1) and KF Hagskinna (7-0) we also had a couple of close calls against Weed Raiders (3-2) and War Vikings (3-2) After the elimination in the main cup we had a chance in the Smaragðsbikar Íslands. We survived the first three rounds but got eliminated in the fourth round by Yount FC Selfoss. During the 63th season, our youth Academy showed their worth with the promotion to the first squad for Kolsson, Gylfason, Sigurvinsson and Hallmarsson. We invest a lot of our time and money in our youth academy and that pays off said coach Valerio Scorza. At the end of the season the Grindavík Grizzlies bought winger Klemens Guthnason and sold Néméth, Raun and Brenards for a total of 3,4 million euro's. With the championship and the automatic promotion to division III we send a message to the rest of Iceland that we're coming.
