Stadsparksvallen (popularly called Vallen) is a classic sports facility located in Jönköping, Sweden.
Stadsparksvallen was inaugurated in 1902 and is located on a beautiful spot in Jönköping's town park. Vallen functions as the football club Jönköpings Södra IF's home arena (IK Tord also plays here), but as late as 1981 it was used for track and field events. Jönköpings Södra IF has played 10 seasons in the Swedish Allsvenskan in Stadsparksvallen. Sweden women's national football team has played thrice at the venue, first time in 1985 against Belgium.
During the Swedish Sports Confederation's 100th anniversary in 2003, Stadsparksvallen was designated as one of the 100 sports historic places in Sweden.Facts
