Helsingborgs IF (alternative spelling Hälsingborgs IF), commonly referred to as Helsingborg, or (especially locally) HIF, is a Swedish football club located in Helsingborg. They are currently playing in the second highest Swedish league, Superettan. The club, formed 4 June 1907, has won five national championship titles and five national cup titles. Helsingborgs IF have also won Allsvenskan on two occasions when the title of Swedish champions was not decided by the outcome of that league.[1][A]

Helsingborg was a founder member of Allsvenskan, and between 1924 and 1968 they spent all but two seasons in the top division, and won the league five times. At the end of the 1968 season, HIF was relegated, and while most people initially expected a quick return, they went on to spend the next 24 seasons in the lower leagues before finally getting promoted back to the top flight in 1992. Having returned to Allsvenskan in 1993, Helsingborg remained in the top division until 2016, winning the league twice in 1999 and 2011.

The club is affiliated to the Skånes Fotbollförbund.
