The Laugardalsvöllur is Iceland’s national football stadium, home of the Iceland national football team and Fram Reykjavík, one of the most successful clubs in the country.
The first match played at the stadium was between Iceland and Norway in 1957, two years before Laugardalsvöllur was officially opened.
There was just a single stand in the stadium for many years until a second was added in 1997. Laugardalsvöllur currently has a capacity of 9,800 but there was a record attendance of 20,204 in August 2004 to witness a famous 2-0 victory over a star studded Italy.
