Matthijs de Jongh,
The Other Sport (Swedish: Den andra sporten) is a three-part documentary series zooming in on the often harsh conditions of women's football/soccer in Sweden since the first clubs got structurally organized in the mid-1960's up until this very day. The three various approaches to story are told from the perspective of today's reality - The Winning Call (Vinnarskallar) - from yesterday's reality - Women Against The Tide (Kärringar mot strömmen) - as well as through a somewhat chronological study and insight to the important dates and decisive situations occurring throughout the history showing the developments of the sport - in Play Seriously (Leken Som Blev Allvar.)

Have just seen this three-part series about the Swedish women's football and its history and must immediately point out what incredible work the creators of this series managed to do. The history bite into one of beginning and we follow several generations of Swedish female football players fight for a get involved with their sport. think it is much more to tell, even if the three programs get with it Most and related managed to establish contact and proximity to the participants that I rarely seen before in Swedish television. Would really recommend these titles to those who talk about women's football in condescending terms with the hope that they understand that it is not in any way been easy to participate in this trip since the 1960s.
