Description: Vålerenga Stadion
The dream of building a stadium of their own was born at Oslo’s most famous club in 2008. The selected plot in eastern Oslo’s Valle Hovin was awarded into Vålerenga’s long-term lease by the city in mid-2014. The new football venue will take the place formerly occupied by a velodrome, right beside an ice rink.
Thanks to the inclusion of educational facilities within the new stadium, Vålerenga received public support for the project and were able to break ground in January of 2016. The western main grandstand, by far the largest (and tallest) part of the stadium was the first to begin growing. By July 2017 all four independent stands are to be structurally complete.
This 17,500-18,000 stadium is built with future expansion in mind. Each of the three corners (north-western occupied by the school) can be filled and provide well over 20,000 capacity.
Oslo: Vålerenga asks fans about stadium choices
Construction is advancing very fast, but there are still some decisions left to make. And supporters are encouraged to give their feedback on seats, colours and commercial offer within the new stadium.
New construction: Vålerenga to play there in a year
Looking at it now you may not believe it, but this stadium will be opened this time next year, giving Oslo’s Vålerenga a home they’ve been campaigning for since 2008.
