Hlíðarendi – stadium description

Built from scratch in the place of its predecessor, the new stadium was opened in May 2008, after 4 years of works. Though it has only one stand, the ground can hold 3,000 people, all covered. The roof is in fact part of an indoor arena behind the stand. The hall can be used both for sports (even football) and commercial events.

The stadium is home to Valur, one of Iceland’s most important teams. Along with Fram they create the Reykjavik football derby, Iceland’s biggest.

In 2007 naming rights deal was secured for the venue. Until late 2012 it will be called Vodafone völlurinn.
