Jämtkraft Arena – stadium description
The new stadium in northern Östersund was opened in July 2007 along with its side pitch. Two fully covered stands accommodate over 5,000 people. The larger one, to the east, also boasts a restaurant overlooking the pitch and all the sporting infrastructure needed.
In 2013 first expansion took place as Östersund were promoted to the Superettan (2nd tier). New wooden terrace was built to the east, managing to bring capacity to over 6,000.
