Parken Stadium (known as Telia Parken for sponsorship reasons) is the home of one of the most successful teams in Scandinavian football – FC København.
The stadium was built on the site of the former Danish national stadium, Idrætspark. An agreement between the company that redeveloped the stadium and the Danish Football Association ensured all international matches would be played there for 15 years. Even beyond the 15 year agreement, the majority of Danish international football matches are still played at the stadium.

Parken hosted its first match on the 9th September 1992 as Denmark, fresh from their 1992 European Championship victory, lost 2-1 to Germany.
The stadium is too small to host UEFA Champions League finals, as it does not meet UEFA’s minimum requirement of a capacity of 50,000. However the now defunct UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup Final was played there in 1994, with Arsenal beating Parma 1-0, as well as the 2000 UEFA Cup Final in which Arsenal again featured, lost 4-1 on penalties to Galatasaray after playing a 0-0 draw. Parken will also be one of the 12 host venues of Euro 2020, with three group matches and a round of 16 match played there.
