Eleda Stadion – stadium description

Construction took 2,5 years and ended in 2009. First naming rights deal was sealed with Swedbank before it even opened, which aided covering of costs estimated at 700m krona.

The venue can hold up to 24,000 people of whom 18,000 have double-tiered seated sections while most passionate supporters can find a 6,000 kop stand behind goal with terracing (convertible to seating for international games, but also decreasing capacity to some 21,000).

The ground has a wide range of conference halls, largest of which holds 2,000 guests and smallest 20. There are also 54 skyboxes, one of the largest numbers in this part of Europe.
