Sarpsborg Stadion – stadium description

The municipal stadium in Sarpsborg was built in 1930 as a track and field venue. In the first years of its existence it served an important role for Norwegian sport, hosting one of the few domestic cup finals outside of Oslo. That game in 1945 was watched by some 20,000 people and to this day remains the place’s record for crowd size.

Today’s stadium has little connection to the old one, though. In 2000 a new main grandstand was built along the south side. From 2009 the field is artificial and running track was removed. Then the north side was remodeled in 2013, while temporary sections were raised for away fans behind both goals.
