the Board wants to investigate a possible name change but Douglas Roos would like to see a change already at the annual meeting on Tuesday, February 19.
– It will be voted on the name issue and the board is very concerned that it will divide the club. But I have pushed this issue because I think it's incredibly important, " says Roos, who has been coach at IF Brommapojkarna during the eleven years of time.
already at the annual meeting of last year, which voted 37 members in order to preserve the original name, 29 were for IF BP. To change the name requires a two-thirds vote for the proposal.
"I want to take up the name issue again," says Roos. But I do not know how many will be at the annual meeting, there are many that are active at the computer.Douglas Roos would like to see a namnändrig of IF Brommapojkarna to IF the BP at the annual meeting on Tuesday, February 19.

for a name change on Facebook and in social media and received great feedback, both positive and negative.
Many have called me for the right nasty things, the issue stirs up emotions but I think that it is very simple. As Europe's largest football club should Brommapojkarna in symbolikens name go in the lead and show where they stand.
to get the vote, players and leaders pay the membership fee of 400 sek, parents and supporters pay 600 sek and the fee shall be paid no later than december 31.
– unfortunately, There is a democratic deficit in the BP that many people are not aware. You must also be 18 years of age and it is a pretty high limit, it makes to rule out a fairly large amount of BP's members from voting.
IF Brommapojkarna has around 5,000 active and a leader.
" I am absolutely convinced that if you ask the members, so it is an overwhelming majority who want the club to be a modern association that shows where you stand in the jämlikhetsfrågan. Why should the 1,000 soccer playing girls is called ”boys”?
founded by the boys from Bromma on 13 april 1942 at Yllevägen 6 at Brommaplan, is a name that is well known not only in Sweden but also around Europe.
Ola Danhard, which for a long time ruled the club, Leif Andersson, former player in the BP, and Putte Salminen, chairman of the "skipped" a generation Bromma support, are against a name change.
They also pointed out that Eskilstunaklubben Guif (Godtemplarnas Youth and sports Club) not only consists of abstainers, and all active in Stockholmspolisens IF not wearing the uniform.
”We are proposing that the registered name IF Brommapojkarna composed and communicative uses BP,” writes the trio in a motion to the annual meeting.
