Sauvosaaren kenttä – stadium description

Sitting just 120 meters from the Bay of Bothnia, the football stadium in Kemi, Lapland, dates back to 1934 and is part of the municipality's main sports complex. For many years it played secondary role to the athletic stadium beside it, which has floodlighting.

However, promotion of Kemi to Veikkausliiga prompted the municipal authorities to invest in expansion of the ground in 2016. A new main grandstand with 1,000 covered seats was delivered on the east side, while the uncovered, wooden west side was equipped with seats almost entirely, leaving only the away section as a standing one.

In the future further expansion is planned, subject to approvals, as well as installation of floodlights.
