DS Arena – stadium description
Back in 2010 the stadium was almost solely a football field with gravel running track. Aside from that only a minuscule terrace and small changing room building were located in the west. However, with the development of the nearly-100-year-old Hobro IK led to serious changes.
First, in 2011, came the new administrative building and main stand, initially holding 415 spectators. Then in 2013 floodlights were installed, along with temporary stands. By 2015 expansion was already ongoing on three sides: main stand was extended to full field length, a new south terrace was erected and construction of the largest eastern side was ongoing.
Once complete, the east side accommodates 2,288 seats fans and adds further 1,800 standing places, as the club informs. Although declared capacity stands at 10,700 spectators, the club is yet to reach this kind of turnout.
