Jernvallen – stadium description
The initial Jernvallen stadium was built before the WWII outbreak, in 1938. It was among Sweden’s host venues of the 1958 World Cup, but record crowds were reported already a year before the FIFA tournament, at local Sandviken IF game.
The current stadium dates back to 1993 and is a lot smaller than its predecessor. The covered stand holds 700 people, while almost three times more can easily fit onto the grassy slopes on remaining three sides. Record home crowd for the new stadium is 2,700.
