Final

National team results

Notes

  1. ^ After the season's end it was disclosed that Vasalunds IF had played nine matches with four non-EU/EEA players, one more player than the rules allowed. The result in eight of the matches was changed to 0–3 losses, and one 0–5 loss was unchanged. This had a positive effect on Spårvägens FF which thus avoided both relegation and relegation play-off, and a negative effect on Lira Luleå BK which now had to play a relegation play-off, and Enköpings SK which were now relegated directly instead of playing a relegation play-off.
