Thrilling Pyrotechnics Display Marks First Training Session of Season for Champions AIK Fotboll

Swedish football champions AIK Fotboll began the new season with a bang on January 10 as thousands of fans turned out for a spectacular pyrotechnics display at an open training session.

Some 2,000 supporters braved temperatures of -2 degrees Celsius (35 Fahrenheit), the club said, as they welcome the men’s and women’s squads at the Skytteholms IP stadium, in the suburbs of Stockholm.
