The 2016 Allsvenskan, part of the 2016 Swedish football season, is the 92nd season of Allsvenskan since its establishment in 1924. The fixtures were released on 9 December 2015 and it included a meeting between the two most recent champions IFK Norrköping and Malmö FF (in Malmö) as the opening match, a replay of the last round of the previous season.[1][2] The season started on 2 April 2016 and will end in November 2016.

IFK Norrköping are the defending champions after winning the title in the last round in the previous season.

A total of 16 teams are contesting the league.

Teams

A total of sixteen teams are contesting the league, including fourteen sides from the 2015 season and two promoted teams from the 2015 Superettan. Both of the promoted teams for the 2015 season managed to stay in the league, Hammarby IF and GIF Sundsvall.

Halmstads BK and Åtvidabergs FF were relegated at the end of the 2015 season after finishing in the bottom two places of the table. They were replaced by 2015 Superettan champions Jönköpings Södra IF and runners-up Östersunds FK. Jönköpings Södra IF returned to Allsvenskan after 46 years' absence, having been relegated at the end of the 1969 season. This is Jönköpings Södra's 11th season in the league. Östersunds FK are participating in the league for the first time in the club's history; they are the first new club in Allsvenskan's history since Falkenbergs FF in 2014.

Falkenbergs FF as 14th-placed team retained their Allsvenskan spot after winning against third-placed Superettan team IK Sirius 3–3 (away goals) on aggregate in a relegation/promotion playoff.
