Stavanger stadionEdit profile
Stavanger stadion is a multi-use stadium in Stavanger, Norway. It was used mostly for football matches and hosted the home matches of Viking FK. The stadium opened on 13 August 1917, and was able to hold 17,555 people at the end of its life as Viking's home ground. The west stand was the largest single-tier spectator stand in the country. The other stands were small roofless terraces without seating.
Stavanger stadion was closed in 2004 when Viking Stadion opened, but has now been reopened as a track and field stadium after a major reconstruction of the spectator stands. Some of the seats from the old main stand were donated to Sandnes Idrettspark.
Unlike Viking Stadion, which was built outside the city centre, Stavanger stadion is located a short walk from downtown Stavanger.
