History
• Founded in 1950, with the football division following in 1957, Breidablik is the oldest sports club in Kopavogur, Iceland's second largest municipality; it took its name from Norse mythology, where Breidablik – meaning broad gleaming – is the home of the god Baldr.

• The club's Kópavogsvöllur home was opened in 1975, and has boasted indoor facilities since 1993; a recent survey discovered that 1,300 of Kopavogur's 30,500 inhabitants played for one of Breidablik's sporting divisions, although the men's football section failed to establish themselves in the highest level until relatively recently.

• Promoted back to the top flight in 2005 when they won their sixth second-tier title, Breidablik's fortunes took a significant turn for the better with the appointment of coach Ólafur Kristjánsson in the summer of 2006, a team dominated by homegrown talents subsequently avoiding relegation.

• Persevering with that youth policy, Breidablik became an established presence in the top division and reached new heights as they won their first Icelandic Cup in 2009, beating Fram Reykjavík 5-4 on penalties following a breathless 2-2 draw.

• A year later they trumped that achievement with their first domestic league title, success earning 14-goal striker Alfred Finnbogason Iceland's Player of the Year award before heading for KSC Lokeren OV; Breidablik's academy has continued to thrive without him, their products forming the bedrock of the Iceland team that qualified for the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.
