Laugardalsvöllur – stadium description

Largest and national stadium of Iceland. Built as one of the first stadiums in the country, just a decade after national football association was established. When opened in 1958, it had just one main stand. The opposite straight came no sooner than in 1997 (with floodlight masts added in 1992) and a completely new main grandstand was built in 2006.

But despite not having the new stand yet, already in 2004 record audience saw Iceland win 2:0 against Italy. Despite this being only a friendly, the game went down to history with not only the score on the pitch, but also the 20,204 people around it.

Apart from the national team of Iceland who use it for all major games, the ground also houses matches of local club Fram Reykjavík.
