Varendsvallen – stadium description
The stadium is part of the largest sports complex in Swedish city of Växjö, located west of the centre. Its operation commenced in 1966 and since then the venue retained its elliptical shape with two significant stands, main one to the east (only one covered) and opposite terrace that eventually became partially seated. Behind goals are two smaller terraced sections.
Despite opening of a new football-specific stadium just meters south, this one also remains in use.
