With promotion secured last weekend, ÍA play their final game of the summer tomorrow afternoon against Þróttur Reykjavík in Akranes.


ÍA still have a chance of finishing as Inkasso deild Champions. They need to win tomorrow's game and hope HK drop points when they play Haukar.


Þróttur have been scoring plenty of goals this season, 51 with Gunnlaugur Jónsson as coach, they did win 4-1 at home to ÍA earlier in the summer.

15/09/18.....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED !!!

A year after being relegated from the Pepsi Deildin, ÍA will be back playing in Iceland's top division next year after securing promotion with a game to spare.


ÍA went into today's game away to Selfoss knowing they could be making a swift return to the Pepsi deildin and also pushing Selfoss closer to relegation.


Jeppe Hansen opened the scoring after 17 minutes. Arnar Már Guðjónsson doubled the lead a few minutes before half time.

Selfoss then had two men sent off within a couple of minutes of each other. First to go was Hrvoje Tokic, quickly followed by Kenan Turudja. It got Selfoss going and they pulled a goal back on 71 minutes, Guðmundur Axel Hilmarsson was the goal scorer.

13/09/18.....SELFOSS AWAY ON SATURDAY

ÍA will get another chance to secure promotion on Saturday afternoon when they play Selfoss at the JÁVERK-völlurinn.


It wont be an easy game for ÍA as Selfoss are fighting relegation. They have recently appointed a new coach. The former Akranes midfielder Dean Martin was brought in as they try to avoid the drop to 2.deild.


HK and ÍA are the favourites for promotion with two games left to play but if they slip up then Víkingur Ólafsvík could catch them.


The remaining fixtures in the race for promotion are as follows:

15/09/18 Selfoss - ÍA, HK - ÍR, Víkingur Ó. - Njarðvík

ÍA took the lead after 14 minutes, Arnar Már Guðjónsson (pictured left) scoring after a corner. Vignir Snær Stefansson scored for Víkingur on 33 minutes.

With no more goals the game ended level.

02/09/18.....ÍA LOOKING GOOD FOR PROMOTION

A 3-2 win away to Magni yesterday moved ÍA back to top place in the Inkasso deildin, HK had taken top spot for 24 hours after their win on Friday.

Jón Þór Hauksson kept faith with the same starting eleven that he had used in the previous four games.


ÍA had a chance to take all 3 points with a 29th minute penalty, Albert Hafsteinsson penalty was saved by the visiting goalkeeper.


Víkingur will join ÍA in the second tier next year as the draw was not enough to keep them up.


The board will have to decide over the next few weeks to appoint Jón Þór Hauksson as permanent coach or look for someone else to take over.

29/09/17.....SEASON COMES TO AN END TOMORROW

The 2017 Pepsi Deildin comes to an end tomorrow afternoon.


Its been a disappointing season for ÍA with their relegation confirmed a few weeks ago. The final game is against Víkingur Ólafsvík at the Norðurálsvöllurinn.


The visitors occupy the remaining relegation place, they need to win and hope ÍBV lose at home to KA. A draw for Víkingur probably wont be good enough due to a big goal difference.

25/09/17.....NEW CONTRACT FOR MIDFIELDER

Arnar Már Guðjónsson (pictured left) has signed a new two year contract with ÍA.


The deal will keep the 30 year old midfielder at the club until 2019.

Arnar Már made his league debut for ÍA in 2004.

He played for KA during the 2008 and 2009 seasons then returned to Akranes.

24/09/17.....NO GOALS AT THE VÍKINGSVÖLLUR

ÍA completed this seasons away fixtures with a 0-0 draw at Víkingur Reykjavík this afternoon.


Jón Þór Hauksson's team extended their unbeaten run to four games with the draw.


They finish the season next Saturday when they play Víkingur Ólafsvík in Akranes. The visitors will need to take something from the game otherwise they will be relegated alongside ÍA.

23/09/17.....ÍA AWAY TO VÍKINGUR TOMORROW AFTERNOON

ÍA go into Reykjavík tomorrow afternoon to play Víkingur at the Víkingsvöllur.


With ÍA relegation confirmed in midweek the team will be looking to end the season on a good run.


Víkingur are sitting in mid table in seventh place under former Akranes coach Logi Ólafsson.

21/09/17.....ÍA RELEGATED !!!

ÍA relegation to the Inkasso Deildin was confirmed tonight.


Fjölnir won 2-1 at home to FH meaning that even two wins from the remaining two fixtures wouldn't be enough for ÍA to climb out of the relegation zone.


The last time ÍA dropped down to the second tier was in 2013, they won promotion at the first attempt so hopefully we can repeat this next year.

17/09/17.....SKAGAMENN STILL HANGING ON !!

ÍA still have a small chance of escaping relegation after a 2-2 draw against Stjarnan this afternoon.


As expected Jón Þór Hauksson kept the same line up for the third successive game.


Arnar Már Guðjónsson (pictured left) got ÍA off to the perfect start with a goal after just 40 seconds. Guðjón Baldvinsson levelled the scores after 10 minutes.


Into the second half and Hólmbert Aron Friðjónsson put the visitors in front with a 59th minute goal. ÍA drew level on 88 minutes, Steinar Þorsteinsson scoring for the third game in a row. With the game coming to an end, a clash of heads ended in Stjarnan's Hólbert Aron Friðjónnson leaving the pitch in an ambulance.


ÍA still have a small chamce of avoiding the drop depending on other results in the remaining games, but could even be relegated later tonight if Fjölnir take points from leaders Valur.



16/09/17.....ÍA AT HOME TOMORROW AFTERNOON

ÍA play Stjarnan at the Norðurálsvöllurinn tomorrow afternoon.


As we know ÍA are in need of as many points as possible to avoid relegation.


As for Stjarnan they are in second place in the table, they are 7 points behind leaders Valur and could still win the title if Valur collapse in the remaining games.


Things have improved for ÍA over the last few games and I would imagine Jón Þór Hauksson will keep faith in forwards Steinar Þorsteinsson and Stefán Teitur Þórðarson who have both scored in the last two games.

14/09/17.....ÍA DRAW AT FJÖLNIR

ÍA have drawn 2-2 away to Fjölnir tonight as the 19th round of Pespi Deildin fixtures were played.


Jón Þór Hauksson kept the same starting line up that had won against KA at the weekend.


After a goal less first half, it was Fjölnir who took the lead after 48 minutes when Ólafur Valur Valdimarsson scored an own goal. Stefán Teitur Þórðarson scored on 53 minutes to level the scores, his second goal in as many games. ÍA went ahead on 60 minutes when Steinar Þorsteinsson (pictured left) made it 2-1. With 15 minutes left to play Fjölnir equalised with a goal from Þórir Guðjónsson.

The game ended 2-2, ÍA remain bottom of the league on 14 points. Fjölnir are in ninth place and just outside the relegation places on 21 points.


ÍA are up against Stjarnan next, the two sides meet in Akranes on Sunday.

13/09/17.....FOUR GAMES LEFT TO PLAY

There are just four rounds of games left to play in this years Pepsi Deildin.


ÍA are away to Fjölnir tomorrow afternoon, both teams are trying to avoid the drop to 1.deild.

Fjölnir are in ninth place with 20 points.

ÍA will be looking to build on the weekends win against KA, another win tomorrow could make for an exciting end to the season.

10/09/17....ÍA WIN AGAINST KA !!

Two second half goals have given ÍA their first win since 19th June to keep alive their hopes of escaping relegation.


Jón Þór Hauksson had defender Viktor Örn Margeirsson back in the team and a young strike force of Stefán Teitur Þórðarson (pictured left) and Steinar Þorsteinsson.


ÍA had the chance to take the lead during the first half when they were awarded a penalty on 40 minutes. Þórður Þorsteinn Þórðarson had his penalty saved.


The game sprung into life on the hour mark, Stefán Teitur Þórðarson scoring his first ever league goal. Ten minutes later and it was 2-0, Steinar Þorsteinsson scoring this time with his third of the season.

KA were reduced to ten men on 90 minutes when Callum Williams was red carded.

There was even time for Guðfinnur Þór Leósson to make his league debut when he replaced Steinar Þorsteinsson on 90 minutes.


ÍA now play Fjölnir in Reykjavík on Thursday as the fight to stay in the top division continues.

09/09/17.....ÍA BACK IN ACTION TOMORROW

ÍA are back in action tomorrow after the break for the World Cup Qualifiers.


ÍA play KA at the Norðurálsvöllurinn.


With only five games left to play, ÍA have a massive task if they are to avoid relegation. They are 10 points behind tenth placed Víkingur Ólafsvík so three points are needed tomorrow.

27/08/17.....ANOTHER DEFEAT FOR ÍA

Jón Þór Hauksson's first game as coach has ended in a 2-0 defeat to Breiðablik.


ÍA went into the game without defender Viktor Örn Margeirsson who is on loan from Breiðablik, Gylfi Veigar Gylfason (pictured left) replacing him.


Breiðablik took the lead after 21 minutes, it was ÍA defender Gylfi Veigar Gylfason scoring an own goal.
