Tough day at the office for AIK

Tough day at the office for AIK - Michael Campanella Photography

Summer vacation is winding down and it’s time to get back to work. I’m starting to pencil in photography assignments for the fall it and it’s looking pretty promising. Yesterday I returned to Friends Arena and photographed AIK’s match against AFC Eskilstuna. On paper it seemed like an easy win. AIK sitting in third place and Eskilstuna dead last, but AIK made things hard on themselves giving up a goal in the first half and then having to chase the equalizer against a team that is incredibly adapt to wasting time and defending in eleven.

In the end AIK was able to equalize but couldn’t go on to break the deadlock. It’s a shame because it feels like the season is all but over for us photographers in Stockholm. Neither Djurgården or AIK seem to be able to keep up with Malmö, who looks all set to cruise to an another easy title.

Maybe next year.
