The national stadium grew since we last presented it. Two new stadiums also join our database from this small and remote location. All thanks to the groundhopping adventures of Gerhard Rudolf.
First here are two new positions in our stadium database. Follow links for more photos:
Við Djúpumýrar, Klaksvik
Faroe Islands’ largest eastern town has very long footballing traditions. Its local club, KÍ Klaksvík, was established back in 1904 and plays at the very heart of town. The only concrete grandstand is located along the north-western side of the field, accommodating over 500 seated guests.
Along with standing room around the pitch the stadium can hold some 1,500. That number was far higher before seat installation in the grandstand, supposedly around 3,000.
Skála Vøllurin, Skala
The stadium built back in 1968 is one of the rather few attractions in the Skala village, where the number of inhabitants doesn’t exceed stadium capacity. Still hundreds of people attend games when local team plays in one of the top divisions. Modernised with 300 foldable seats in 2007 (to meet minimum UEFA requirements) it offers a stunning view of the Skalafjord and hills on the other side.
