Description: Slottskogsvallen

Opened in May 1923, the ground is perceived as one of the most important track and field venues in Sweden. Partly for its location in the Castle Park and also for interesting architecture it's among most distinctive stadiums of Göteborg. Field of play with athletics track are surrounded by low embankments with standing room for spectators and in the west and south two bigger stands were erected. Particularly the western, main grandstand is attractive visually due to its roof and two towers on both ends. The ground is home to monument celebrating Per Henrik Ling, called the father of Swedish gymnastics.

For years it's been the place for Swedes to establish records in various disciplines and to date is still place of athletics events. It has its role for football as well with Göteborgs FC having played here until 2006 when the club was relocated. Currently it's sometimes used by Azalea BK, a side specializing in youth training. Since 2003 it's also place of numerous concerts by Swedish vocalists.
