Carl Henrik Jordan Larsson was born on June 20, 1997 (age 26 years) in Glasgow, Scotland. He is the son of Henrik Larsson, who played in the same position for Högaborgs BK, Helsingborgs IF, Feyenoord, Celtic, Barcelona, Manchester United, and the Sweden national team. The elder Larsson won trophies in the Netherlands, Scotland, Spain and England, totaling 242 goals for Celtic alone.
Larsson was born in Glasgow, days after his dad signed for Celtic. He is named after basketball player Michael Jordan. He has Cape Verdean descent through his paternal grandfather. Larsson was regularly seen at Celtic Park when his father played there and accompanied him on the pitch in trophy celebrations. He is the son of former professional footballer and current manager Henrik Larsson.
Jordan Larsson played for the team’s La Masia Academy while his father played for FC Barcelona between 2004 and 2006. He began his senior career at Högaborg in the Swedish Football Division 2, the fourth level of the sport in the country. On 19 June 2013, in a match against Tenhults IF, 15-year-old Larsson played alongside his 41-year-old father, who was making a comeback due to an injury crisis at Högaborg.
Larsson was tracked by another of his father’s former employers, Manchester United at the age of 16 in January 2014. Instead, he signed a four-year deal for the city’s main club Helsingborgs IF, the same transfer that his father had made 22 years prior.
He made his first team debut in the Allsvenskan on 27 July 2014, coming on as a substitute for Mattias Lindström in the 73rd minute of a 1–1 home draw against Örebro SK. On 26 August, he made his first start away to Division 2 team Torslanda IK in the second round of the Svenska Cupen, scoring in each half of a 4–1 away win.
In November 2014, Jordan Larsson’s father took over as the team’s manager and assured the public that he would not practice nepotism. The following 4 March in the group stage of the competition, Larsson opened a 2–2 draw against Superettan team Syrianska FC with a goal that received attention abroad for the quality of its technique, reminiscent of his father.
Jordan Larsson scored his first league goal for Helsingborg on 6 June 2015 in the second minute of a 3–0 win against Åtvidabergs FF, two weeks before his 18th birthday. On 19 July, he added two more in a 3–1 win over AIK at Olympia, and a further two on 20 August in an 8–1 win at fifth-tier Lunden ÖBK in the second round of the cup, which led to interest from IFK Göteborg.
After Helsingborg lost their relegation play-off to Halmstads BK in November 2016, Larsson, who scored a late goal that would have kept them up, was attacked by Hooligans from his own team, who rushed onto the pitch and tore off his shirt.

Two weeks later he was sent off as the VitBlå suffered a first home defeat of the season to Trelleborgs FF, for a high challenge on Robin Nilsson.

On 27 October 2019, he scored twice after coming on as a substitute in the second half in a 3–0 victory over FC Lokomotiv Moscow.
In March 2022, FIFA introduced special regulations related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The regulations allow foreign players in Russia to suspend their contracts until the end of the 2021–22 season and sign with a club outside of Russia until that date. On 4 April 2022, Larsson used the new rule to join AIK on a short-term deal, one of the only Spartak players to do so.
Jordan Larsson made his debut for the club six days later in the home premiere against IFK Norrköping. Larsson went straight into the starting eleven and made an assist after 15 minutes when he lifted the ball from a corner to Alexander Milošević who scored the match’s only goal.

He scored the second goal for the club on 21 May 2022 when AIK played 2–2 against IK Sirius at Friends Arena. In the following match, Larsson scored the decisive goal against his old club Helsingborgs IF at Olympia, which AIK won 2–1. He made his last match for the club on June 26, 2022, when he played 61 minutes when AIK played 1–1 against Degerfors IF. During his time at the club, he produced 3 goals and 2 assists in 11 Allsvenskan matches.

Jordan Larsson made his under-21 debut on 3 June 2016, coming on in added time for Arber Zeneli and scoring the winner in a 3–2 victory over Georgia at Rimnersvallen, in qualification for the 2017 European Championship. He was one of three forwards chosen by coach Håkan Ericson for the team at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. However, he was withdrawn by his father and club manager, as Helsingborg only had one other striker available.
On 7 January 2018, he made his debut for the senior national team playing 64 minutes in a 1–1 friendly draw with Estonia in Abu Dhabi. Two years and two days later he scored his first international goal, the only one of a friendly win against Moldova in Qatar.
